“Smell too strong”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

We like to try different restaurants since there are so many, i was very surprised that my husband, being a meat lover, couldnt stand the smell of the place, poor choice, we are a family of 6, so that meant a $40 tip for a buffet, we dont do buffets anymore, didnt care for the selection for younger kids.

“Breakfast Buffet”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

My family and I went to the breakfast buffet at Boma and were very pleased with it. The buffet isn’t cheap but the food was plentiful with many different selections. Another plus is that the buffet area was kept very clean. I would definitely recommend Boma.

We liked that this restaurant was right in our resort (Animal Kingdom Lodge). The buffet included a wide variety of choices and the atmosphere was nice.

“Not like it used to be 5 years ago.”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

When I ate here 5 years ago the food was fantastic and they had many different options for someone that doesn't eat red meat. Their Chicken was very good and so were the mashed potatoes but that's not worth the price per person. They had do many weird dishes with very different ingredients. I love weird food and I will try almost anything once but I didn't like a lot. Don't waste your money!
