Ohana vs Boma for Dinner

Which do you all suggest? We like menus at both. THis will be our AK day so Boma is a closer ride but it truly doesnt matter to us. If you had to choose one, which would it be? I wish we were staying one more night so I didnt have to choose!!!

Another vote for Boma here, especially after the recent changes to the menu at 'Ohana.

I love both, but I'd go with Boma. The dessert is better at 'Ohana, but there's so much variety at Boma. And since you're already at AK, its super convenient!

Boma. Not only are there menu changes at Ohana, but the Poly is a mess with construction. Loses a little of it's luster.

"Boma" by FAR !!!

(and we like "Ohana")---

That being said, IMHO, "Boma" is the best buffet on property---

And their kids section is amazing !! Their pasta and meatballs might be better than the majority of the Italian restaurants on property !!!

The soups, carving board, bread service, ... desserts !! (and dont forget the press pot !!)

LOVE IT !!!

I've eaten at both multiple times. Even with a mess at Poly I would say O'HANA. It is my family's favorite. I like that it is family style versus a buffet. Depending where you are seated Boma can be difficult to get around to the buffet. I like O'hana's 'entertainment'. Boma had nothing more than the scenery, which is nice. Normally the view and ambiance are better at Poly but I can't be sure what that is like with the construction. And I LOVE the food. I'm surprised to see so many Boma lovers.

This is music to my ears! Sounds like we made the right decision to book Boma and not O'Hana!

Definitely Boma!!
We used to LOVE 'Ohana~ it was a must do on every trip.
We gave it a second chance...and then a third... 3 strikes you're out!
And Boma just doesn't win by default, it really is good!
