We frequent Boma during a trip and it never disappoints! The services is always outstanding, the food is excellent and is a great opportunity to try things that are out of the box/norm and the restaurant itself is beautiful! There is a large variety offered and even for the picky eaters there are a few good choices. The desserts are... More

Work up a big appetite. Then go to Boma and enjoy all kinds of delicious African-themed dishes. We're never disappointed. Soups - curried... More

Wait staff was on it. The food was good, but be prepared to wait in the buffet line. Not very efficiently set up, not that big of a deal but people around us didn't like having to wait in a line for 10 mins or so. Very nice atmosphere and resort.

Absolutely loved eating at Boma for breakfast before heading off to Animal Kingdom for the day. Get an 8am reservation, if you can swing it! We will definitely come back again!

I go to Africa sometimes for work so I was excited to try this place. It's pricey but we all loved it. They even did wel with y daughter's egg, milk and nut allergies. She had pasta with marinara and eatballs, pork, broccoli and a cookie. Everyone else ate at the buffet and no one had a bad meal.

Large buffet with african inspired choices, but also enough choices for those not so adventurous. Our server was wonderful and it was nice trying some new items. Would love to try the dinner buffet next time. Cost was $53.25 before trip.

This was our first time at Boma. We were not sure about how the food was going to be but have to say everything was delicious. Our favorite was the seafood gumbo and the meats cant wait to go back!

My friends and I enjoyed a fun lunch at Boma. It was more than a meal, it was an experience. From the ethnic dishes to the table visit from Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy, everything about this lunch was AWESOME!

We ate at Boma for breakfast while at Disney. The buffet was delicious, with wonderful twists on breakfast buffet favorites and a few surprises with traditional African seasonings. Staff attentive and always wonderful. If you like the food, ask for recipes! It always amazes me, the quality of food that Disney creates given the amount of people they feed daily.
