Tusker House Review

This review reflects our experience in October of 2013.

Tusker House is a buffet style restaurant in the Animal Kingdom located in Harambe Village. You immerse yourself into a restaurant in Africa filled with photos, art and music. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served here. Both breakfast and lunch services are filled with safari dressed characters.

When you book your reservation here make sure you select special requests and select your “allergies.” Once you check in for your reservation the host will ask you about the allergies, request to talk to a chef. After you have been seated a chef will come to your table and walk you through the buffet and point out every vegan item. Trust us, there are a lot!

After your private tour with the chef, it’s time to chow down. Everything we have eaten from Tusker House has been delicious. Their menu is full of couscous, samosas, tofu, tabbouleh, hummus and so much more. This place will definitely fill you up without the guilt.

As you can see, there is a variety of food for vegans to enjoy. When we were done stuffing our faces at the buffet our chef reappeared with ice cream and cookies.

Tusker House is a restaurant that we highly recommend to people to try. It is worth it as a vegan to have so many options in a buffet, the atmosphere is an added bonus too! Make sure you get there for lunch to enjoy your meal with Safari Goofy.

Back in 2014 I created Vegan Disney World after going to Walt Disney World several times and finding no resource for vegan options. Corey and I began this blog from our trips and have now moved closer to the mouse to eat around the parks on a weekly basis. Since the blog started we have cruised on Disney Cruise Line, gone to Tokyo Disneyland and to Disneyland in California!
