Wouldn't be a trip to Botanic Boojum without a wait in the queue, but it's worth the wait. Still decent value despite a few price increases over the years. A must for a quick lunch on the go, fuelling up for the rest of the day!

I remember the day boojum opened its doors, and since then you can barely see the doors with the queues at lunchtime. The food is cheap and filling with varying tastes, as well as getting a bit of chat from the team, if its quiet enough to do so. I remember once standing there for half an hour discussing the...

We often get boojum delivered. It's either amazing or a let down. Keep the same recipes and all will be well. And for the love of god, MORE SOUR CREAM KN THE BURRITOS. We stopped ration portions in World War Two. I'm a high note. Mexican rice is always fantastic.

Can't fault boojum in any way. Totally gorgeous and great value for money. Highly recommended for a filling and extremely tasty quick feed.

Went for a meal during our lunch hour in work and ended up going hungry as there was only 1 member of staff on! One member and the que was out the door!! We waited 15 minutes before deciding to give up and try elsewhere. Wasted 15 minutes and by the time we got somewhere else the lunch break was... More

Don't be put off by the big queue, you would be suprised at how quickly it goes down! Only things I would suggest to change: different chips. got them once and never again they... More

Very good tastes and selection. Unfortunately in recent times its been more expensive. Smaller portions. Less meat and more rice to fill the space. Older boojum was better.

I enjoy boojum and it's my favourite takeaway in Belfast. Unfortunately this one is dirty and its not nice to sit in at all. The service and food also seem to be below the standard of other Boojum's I've visited.

I have been going to boojum since 2008 and their recent expansion is warranted across the city. Love the flavours and the portion sizes are great and i have a massive apetite. Anyone who needs more should stick to all you can eats. The only thing I would say is that I've had to stop ordering the chicken as it's... More

My fiance and I arrived here at 11.35 ( a few mins after opening) to a huge q. Not being put off, we joined it as we know how quickly it goes down. We were waiting for ages as the staff were being quite slow. The attitude of the first server was very poor. I asked for a burrito bowl... More
