BOMA is a must do for us plus we stay at KV. I think BOMA may get some negative reviews because the food is different. We have been at both breakfast and diner though we prefer Tusker house for breakfast and Boma for diner. They have carved meats, fish lots of soups the seafood gumbo was fantastic. The coconut rice was fantastic. I can't say enough good things.

You can't compare 'Ohana and Boma: two different experiences.

I eat at Boma 3x/year. While I've had lackluster service a couple of times, I've never eaten a bad meal there! Going back soon!

we were at Boma last week.. (and have been once before)

we liked the food alot last week, especially the mushroom soup and the seafood gumbo.

it was our 15 dd first time there and she really enjoyed it.

We would go back!!

Give it a shot... we wont go back to LeCellier and that is a huge hit for everyone. ( we had terrible service and our food was not prepared right)

Grandpa used to say "that is why there is Chocolate and vanilla"

Be it breakfast or dinner, we would not go to Boma unless we liked the more 'unusual' offerings. Because they have more than the normally expected buffet food offerings, plus the African-influence style of foods in terms of cooking and seasoning, it really fits out taste and has become our favorite.

I didn't hear that review, maybe it's new, or old?, but I have listened to Pete mentioning, over and over, that nobody should base their choices on the Dis-Podcast reviews, rather only consider them as one piece of information. I like that in their reviews because it makes it more in perspective, plus being honest and sincere in terms of their opinion.

I've only done breakfast at Boma, maybe three or four times. But I have NEVER been disappointed, breakfast at Boma is amazing!

We went there on our last visit and loved it! My DH said it is a must do on all of our future visits. We are very adventurous eaters, but didn't find the items too out of the ordinary, but ordinary for us is probably different than what others would consider ordinary.

We enjoy the food at Boma very much, but it's the atmosphere that's a big turnoff for me. It's a glorified cafeteria. I just can't bring myself to go back and spend that kind of money for that atmosphere when there are better options out there.

I agree with the people who have said that it's a matter of personal taste. For me, personally, I did not enjoy it. It wasn't because the food wasn't good or anything, it just wasn't my taste. I am a picky eater and would prefer a place like O'hana or Chef Mickey's, just because their fare isn't as exotic. I did try some things that was outside of my comfort zone, but I guess African spices just don't appeal to me. However, the rest of my family LOVED it and cannot wait to return.

Were there things there that I enjoyed? Absolutely. But given the choice, I probably won't be returning unless I am with a group who is going. I won't necessarily complain, though, mainly because I can get my money's worth just from eating those darn Zebra Domes

We went many years ago and did not enjoy it at all - We thought everything sort of tasted the same...and a lot of savory dishes had a very sweet and cinnamony (not a word - but still) taste to it.

This past May we were staying at AKL so for our first night dinner I thought we should give it another try.....

LOVED it...The salmon, the roasted chicken, BBQ ribs, salads, side dishes, the different flavor hummus, the soups. All fantastic. And the desserts

I say try it my DH and DD wanted to go so we went. They loved it. I however did not because I do not care for buffets and unusual foods. The wait was long. Enough people like it that it must be good

On the other hand Boma is a buffet serving food and spices largely unfamiliar to the American palate. Its only comparison is to another buffeteria like Chef Mickey's or Cape May, but even those places offer character breakfasts and dinners.
