One word - Wow!

You must eat here. I could go on and on about the food but that will just make us all hungry. It is a buffet but since they need all day to cook the food you know it is good. Book before you arrive in WDW because otherwise you may not get in, seriously it is that good.

We decided to stay at Animal Kingdom Lodge for just 1 night and decided to eat dinner at Boma for a change of pace. We were so amazed at how different this was from all the other Disney Buffets! if you are tired to chewy pasta, lukewarm meats, and mind-numbingly boring choices, then this is the antidote. A wide variety... More

I completely agree with an earlier reviewer who commented she'd eat there every breakfast if she could. I totally would, too. Boma is just such a fun breakfast. There's the old faithful dishes for the non-adventurous (eggs, potatoes, bacon, etc.) but there are new dishes to try, as well! As a gluten-free diner, I was in heaven with the naturally... More

Boma has been one of our "go to" restaurants on Disney property since they first opened (along with Cape May Café). When Boma first opened it really was a "taste of Africa" with a large variety of flavors and spices. (I have been to Africa several times). My guess is that it was too flavorful for the typical tourists, so... More

This is the best Breakfast buffet I have ever been too. The food was beyond anything I have ever eaten. Our server Cindy was the best.

Boma was on my must try list for this year after several trips to Disney and dining at the usual places. Having a picky eater in our group made me a little nervous about dining here but there were enough non-exotic foods available to make everyone happy. The soups are outstanding. We had the sambal chicken corn chowder and the... More

A must for us at Disney. Excellent food & atmosphere. Everything done well. Hard to save room for dessert, but you must. They are delish.

The atmosphere was nice, even though the restaurant was very busy & quite loud. The meal is an all you can eat buffet. We found the food was cooked well & there was a good selection to choose from. There was one soup ( I think it was a chowder more than a soup) which out of this world.

I still feel full from my trip here. It was really good but, the best things were the salads and soups. I would have given this place 5 stars if the main dishes were better but, I prefered the soups. The desserts were also amazing. I loved the bread pudding with salted caramel sauce and would have had a whole... More

This restaurant was well worth the price-tag (considering everything in Orlando is a bit pricier). Come hungry and you'll have an even better experience. I tried a little bit of everything; some things were not super tasty, some were good, and most of it was great! The soup may have been my favorite thing. Everything was delicious and the service...
