“Great Atmosphere - Food just Above mediocre”
Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

Due to not being on Disneys dining plan I paid 260.00 for four adults and 2 children.
The atmosphere was great, servers were very accommodating and kind.
Many different varieties to choose from. The coconut curry soup was lovely. However the pork shoulder and sliced sirloin were quite tough.
Other than the Zebra Domes we thought dessert was lacking.
Next time will try another restaurant more focused on the taste of the food.

“EXPANSIVE BUT TESTY”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

the boma is a buffe stile resturant with many dishes so even vegetarians have varied dishes to enjoy. we ate breakfest and dinner and enjoyed both. do remember that adult is anyone who is older than nine years so if your "adult" childrens don't it much you still will have to pay a lot. the bill comes with a suggested tip amount of 18% or 20 % and your are politely asked to choose - so even though the service is exelent - it made us fill a bit uncomftable.

“Great food you probably don't usually get”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Buffet with lots of interesting food, and to my surprise, 90% of it was delicious! Would eat here again and again. Got a little crowded, but isn't everything at Disney crowded? After hearing lots about zebra domes, which were good, I fell in love with some kind of coffee tart. So did my kids. Enjoyed seeing the Savanna after the meal.

“yummy breakfast buffet”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

We had a great breakfast here. Did not have to wait long with no reservation. There were many things to choose from and could not get enough bacon and sausage. Staff were friendly and we did not feel rushed.
