This is a buffet restaurant with an incredible number of delightful selections from unique African to just well prepared American. They will walk you through to identify safe foods if you have food allergies. Reservations strongly encouraged.

Family of 5 for dinner, we've eaten here before and it seemed like they had less on the buffet this year. When you're paying 50$ a person plus tip you hope to see more choices. The food is pretty good and certainly exotic. The desserts were not tasty and were disappointing. The restaurant is nice and the atmosphere relaxing but... More

It's in Jambo House and this is another good option of eating before visiting Animal Kingdom. Our service was a bit odd. There was an Asian woman who was our waitress and we couldn't figure out if she was playing up some stereotypes or if that's just who she is. Outside of her, we had a lovely time. The place... More

I decided to book dining reservations after speaking with a Disney cast member when first booking my trip. So glad I listened to her. The food was fresh, plentiful and well-detailed in explanation. I overheard a mom discussing her son's peanut allergy with a chef and the chef personally walked the family up and down the buffet, pointing out foods... More

My fiance and I went to Boma on the first night of our Disney World vacation. Neither of us had ever been there before and we were looking forward to it. Boma did not disappoint. We started with an excellent South African sauvignon blanc; I believe it was called beyond. Our server recommended to us as not too sweet but... More

The food was good, but this is a very pricey buffet. Not for the kids unless you want to pay $25 for mac n cheese and chicken bites. The adult selection was good and most dishes had some sort of African spice/flavor. Lots of curry flavor. Meat selection was good and tasty, ribs were a bit over done.Desert selection is... More

It's hard to find a decent meal at Disney without reminiscing of high school cafeteria lunch so we tried Boma with certain expectations given the price of entry. For one, they charge kids over 9 as adults, so my eleven year old who ate mac and cheese and a side of rice cost 46 dollars. Then my 5 year old... More

We love Boma! We eat there every time we visit Disney World. We have eaten breakfast and dinner both. I don't believe they serve lunch. The staff as always was very good and friendly. I would argue that this is the best buffet on Disney property. We ate breakfast this time while we were there. It was delicious as always.... More
