“This picky eater LOVED this food!”
Reviewed August 29, 2014

I dream of going to Africa one day (soon!) and have always been nervous about the food - I'm not the easiest person to please. I reserved dinner at Boma as soon as I knew I'd be going to Orlando and the Disney World area. In part it was to see the animals at this hotel but I quickly learned you don't (can't) see them from the restaurant so that was deceiving. However I was still determined to try the authentic foods and I was so delighted to find one delicious item after another! Perhaps I am meant to go to that beautiful continent after all because my vegetarian palate was in heaven ... I meant to write down all that I was eating so I could relay it here -- but I was too busy going back for seconds. They even had mealie bread which is an African staple I've been reading about (and been curious about) since I was a child. How fun to find it's more or less cornbread!!!

“Excellent Dinner Buffet”
Reviewed August 28, 2014

We have been to WDW twice now, and have enjoyed a dinner at Boma on both visits. On both occasions we have found numerous different dishes and all of fantastic quality. The food is very different from what we eat on a day to day basis, but we love trying new things. The soups are probably the highlight of the buffet, not to take anything away from the other dishes, but they are wonderful. The service there has been excellent as well. It was one of our favourite meals on both trips and we will definitely be back. I would recommend this restaurant if you are spending a day at Animal Kingdom, or are staying at AKL.

“My favorite AKL restaurant”
Reviewed August 27, 2014

Would recommend Boma to anyone. I prefer the breakfast buffet and I'm not typically a breakfast food person. But there is something for everyone. Dinner - had the best soup there. You will get the most enjoyment out of it if you are open to trying new things.

“Breakfast Buffet of Champions”
Reviewed August 27, 2014

It's not cheap, but it's a really full buffet. The pastries are a standout. Flakey croissants and sticky buns. Build your own omlette bar and crispy bacon were also a hit.

“Nice soups and great beef”
Reviewed August 26, 2014 via mobile

Now I'll be honest with this, it's not my bestest most favouritist of the upper end restaurants and WDW. I do like it, and I love the theming but it's not quite got it for me. My wife loves it, so it's purely a taste thing and perhaps a few too many dishes that have bones in. Having said that arguably some of the best soups in WDW. Definitely worth one visit. But given the choice, Grand Floridian, wilderness lodge, Epcot all better.
