    For dinner, I really enjoyed the assortment of curries, soups, fish, and stews. You should try the zebra domes for dessert. The jungle juice is great for fresh fruit juice lovers.

    Skip the Boma bathrooms and use the Jiko bathrooms by the Jiko bar instead. They are better maintained.

    Go hungry to allow room for all the amazingly good breakfast buffet fare. Coffee is below average though. Definitely not what they sell in the gift shop.

    Live African drum line walks throughout the restaurant so this can make it noisy at times.The Moscow mule drink was amazing! The food overall has a wide variety of flavors of Africa

    Great food but the place can get crowded and noisy. So best to come either close to opening or closing when less people are there.

    Buffet meal. But the food is amazing, especially the soups, desserts, and the fish. It's all in an African style, with drum centered musical interludes by the staff. Great time.

    While the food was good (and interesting), we thought the prices were too high. Yes, it's a buffet, but all 3 of us can eat at Sanaa (better food) for the price of one adult buffet here at Boma.

    Butternut Squash soup is excellent. Insider tip -- if you don't see the Butternut Squash soup on the buffet line, ask your server to get you a bowl from the self-service restaurant next door.

    The African corned beef has was my favorite of their breakfast spread. Nothing else stood out to me. Not worth $20 a head. Our server was terrible at refilling drinks too. :-(

    This is the most interestingly delicious Disney buffet I've been to, and the Grand Floridian's Park Faire 1900, Beach Club's Cape May Café and AK's Tusker Inn are wonderful.

    The best part of the experience, aside from the great atmosphere and service, was the passion fruit gelée or the white cornmeal with the tomato sauce. Also love the strawberry lemonade with lime foam!

    Loved the watermelon rind salad. Has a nice crunch & ginger taste. For desserts, I loved the Kenya coffee tart & passion fruit pana cotta above tce more often touted Zebra Dome, was too sweet.

    The items at the carving station including the sides were excellent. The roast beef slice requested was a nice medium rare. Cannot go wrong with any of the sauce choices for the meats.

    If you have allergies, are veggie/vegan, gluten-free or other special dietary needs, a chef will personally show you all the options that work for your diet, and you may even get a special dessert!
