Tusker House, in Africa at the Animal Kingdom, recently changed venues - from counter service to buffet.  And, while the seating...

and theming remain the same...

the offerings are unique, flavorful, and abundant!  From the salad bar...


cold table of dips and chutneys...


and cold meats and cheeses..

to the hot offerings - a variety of African and Middle Eastern fare -

Everything is served in small ceramic platters and changed frequently so food is fresh.  The options vary enough to cover every palate, from adventurous to simple.  This is - bar none - our favorite buffet on property, and we recommend it with all four thumbs up!

I don't care about the characters, but I LOVE the food.  African at its best!  And I can eat as much as I want.  I skip breakfast on the day I go here and eat and eat and eat.  The food is AWESOME!

great for kids!

The whole family loved this restaraunt!! The food was great including a variety and foods that my little ones will actually eat.  The characters were very friendly and they even did some dancing and a congo line.  Very fun!!

I want to let everyone know that my husband, kids and I all absolutely LOVED Donald's Safari Breakfast at the Tusker House!!! This character dining had the best selection of breakfast items, all of the choices were perfectly cooked and we really enjoyed the (don't remember the name)  - I think it was "Jungle Juice" that they served when we werre seated. Of all of the character table service meals that we went to during our recent 6 night trip, this was the best :)

Yummy and Exotic -- best to be had at AK

We've been to Tusker House for lunch at the Animal Kingdom a couple of times now and thoroughly enjoyed it every time.  We just went there during my birthday trip and they really did us up right with a sugar free brownie and ice cream dessert -- really excellent for a more economical buffet type restaurant.

The chef here was great and toured us through the buffet line letting us know which items had added sugar.  Happily, most of my favorite items were good to go so I immediately went forth and loaded up my plate.  The superstar for me was the curry chicken, really excellent and actually better than many of the Indian restaurants I've visited.  The salmon was also quite good as was the rotisserie chicken.  For $21.95 per person, this is really a great deal and IMHO the best food to be had at the Animal Kingdom Park!

So, given the quality vs price ratio I have to give this a 5. 
Tusker House Fantastic Breakfast!

The Tusker House was the way to go and wake up for Animal Kingdom.  The Staff was very welcoming form the first "Jumbo' [hello] to the end.  The food was a great variety of African and American.  The choices for both Kids and Adults were amazing.  The character Parade that is performed at most places was exciting for my pre-teens as they played the instruments around the place with the Pooh Characters.  If you were to have a meal with Pooh Characters, this one is NOT to be missed.  We had a great time here.  Looking forward to trying a different meal here next time.

Deeelicious multi-cultural buffet!

We recently visited Tusker House now that it has been converted to a buffet format.  We were actually late due to the parade (they close their doors at 4PM, make sure you‘re on time!) but they eventually did let us in after some cajoling. 

As a result, our experience was a bit rushed but even so, we found the broad variety of options (everything from curry chicken to hummus w/ pita bread) to be absolutely delicious on every count!  Every one at the table appeared to enjoy their meal and I am eagerly looking forward to our next visit... which is not something I say often about buffets since I‘m generally not your buffet kinda guy!  I even heard rumblings that this buffet might be even better than Boma
