    Love it for both breakfast and dinner. The mix of different foods that you can't get elsewhere is fabulous.

    Exactly what John says! We love both breakfast and dinner and have sometimes done both in one trip. :) Their soups are to die for! The butternut squash and the corn chowder are just amazing...I make both of them at home often.

    Plenty of *normal* food for the unadventurous and lots of yummy African stuff to try for those who like to try new things. (Try the Bobotie!)

    I'm one of the unadventurous ;-) so take my opinion with a pinch of salt.

    I found the food not as good as everyone had said, it all had that african wood fired taste and the place was packed out. Like a busy counter service.

    Can't say I enjoyed it that much and haven't been in a rush to go back. YES though, there is a lot of choices you won't see elsewhere.

    I'm sort of with Keith on this one and also I found a lot of the offerings much too spicy for my taste. Having said that, almost all of my friends love Boma!!

    We had made a slight change in our ADRs for December by changing Yak & Yeti (which all in our party have done numerous times) to Boma for breakfast. Looking forward to trying Boma for the first time.

    I love Boma especially for dinner. The bobitie is my favorite. They have s great selections of soups. Plus there is stuff for the non adventurous too.

    I have been twice and am not a fan. I am adventurous and love spicy and different foods. The first visit was dreadful. It was noisy, we had awful service and I felt that the flavours of the food were in no way authentic. I know some of the recipes and they seemed to be dumbed down in flavour. The desserts looked great but again, I felt that they were tasteless. I decided that we were just unfortunate on the day and we returned again two years later. Oh boy - without going into it, it was even worse. Worse service, worse food and even nosier. For me, it is one that is definitely off the list. Sorry to all you fans. :(

    Weird isn't it. That echoes my experience but obviously others fare better

    We've been a few times but won't rush back, just tasted quite bland last time we went. Would prefer Tusker House for that sort of buffet now.
