We were very pleased with our first time trip to Boma last week. We found the meat and potatoes to be pretty "normal". Sure, there were a few things that were different, but nothing crazy. We enjoyed it.

There's no comparison...Boma is FABULOUS. sci-fi is fun,as an experience, but that's it. Boma also has plenty of ordinary food,your dh won't be hungry. It's our fave WDW restaurant!

Not even a question, Boma hands down. I have 3 picky ones in my family and they all love Boma. Sci Fi is just okay and can eat anywhere!

Definitely try Boma. The sci-fi food is unimpressive, bland, and overpriced. There are unique items at Boma, but they also have lots of meat options like a carved roast and chicken breasts and some plain options for less adventurous eaters.

Sci Fi has a nice atmosphere but the food was nothing special to me. I recall having a BBQ chicken sandwich & to be honest it was just ok. Edible but not enjoyable. I'd go back for the atmosphere but not the food. I have Boma booked for breakfast this year!!!

Personally, I wouldn't pick either but if I had to choose I would go with Boma.

Easy, Sci-Fi! We're foodies and like the food there. We go mostly for the atmosphere and the experience though, it's my husband's favourite place to eat anywhere!

I thought I'd love Boma, as we love the African food at Tusker House breakfast, but I found Boma a bit boring and unimpressive. A lot to choose from, but all a bit meh.

I really liked Boma because of the variety of "different" foods. None of my family really agreed. they all said it was ok but said they didnt care to go back. I guess the best way to describe our vacation dining is unless the food is absolutely amazing we prefer atmosphere, and Boma just doesnt have it IMO
