This is a buffet of African/American food. We loved everything we tried. The pap is like grits, the scrambled eggs were made with goat cheese and chives. Yum! French Bread pudding with caramel sauce and walnuts was to die for. Great service.

I like Boma. The room is charming and the food is always good. I have to take their word that it is authentic African cuisine. I had a 10 am reservation for breakfast, and was seated at about 10:30 The crowd subsided and the meal was leisurely My waitress was very pleasant and attentive. The food was very good and... More

This was one of the best buffets I've ever been to. It is somewhat expensive though. Even though it has an African theme, there were plenty of items to even satisfy my younger girls. They now request this restaurant every time we visit Orlando. I'm glad one of my coworkers told me about it.

We love the variety at this buffet restaurant. This was our second time to eat here. Were on a Disney Dining Plan for first visit, but paid cash this time. It is expensive, so be prepared for that. Food is really very good, so eat up & enjoy. And be sure to get a Zebra Dome as one of your... More

Boma's buffet is incredible and offers a huge variety of wonderful foods. Both the dinner and breakfast buffet offer many culturally accurate selections of all food groups and there is something for every age and palate. The Jambo juice is great, too! Our servers every time are efficient and helpful, too! With advanced planning to get a reservation, it is... More

I went for the breakfast buffet and it was all good. I don't eat a lot of food not do I eat meat so I was disappointed in the $22 price of the buffet. It's worth a trip tho. I'm sure the dinner is amazing

We've gone to Boma numerous times since opening and have always had a great experience, enjoyed the food, the service and thought it was a great value. Our one challenge in recent times was that the food seemed to be a little more homogenized, less authentic and more mainstream. This time we seemed to find flavors that were a little... More

Went here as a buffet with out group the last night we were there. The buffet was excellent, but you'd have to have a really really large appetite to get your money's worth. I managed to eat 1 plate worth, and it was good, but not mind blowing. At $40+ per person plus taxes and tip, I don't know if... More

Came here for dinner after visiting Animal Kingdom. Its a big hall and the food was good, offering a wide selection including the usual North American buffet menu - soups, salads, meats, carbs, desserts; plus some African flavors that's definitely worth trying.

This place was a massive favourite of mine during our 2 week wdw holiday. The variety was amazing this certainly didn't compromise the quality though. A great opportunity to try new things! Loads of flavoursome well cooked food which the whole family can enjoy! Something for everyone!
