The food was ok, with the tandoori chicken being the highlight. Overall nothing special (caveat -- I'm comparing with Australian-Indian restaurants, and the standard in Sweden may be different). Note that they charge for toddlers (ours was 2 years old) and as they won't eat spicy food, or eat much at all, that's something that one might want to factor... More

In Umea for the first time. In between lunch and dinner not to many places are open. Then I found the Taj Mahal. Nice place. Very nice people. Welcome atmosphere. Good food after a long journey. Thank you

It is interesting to try different type of food but also found out that Indian food is not my favourite..maybe a bit too much spices? The food was good though with different kinds of meatsauces, both hot and mild, rice and potatoes, fried fish n chicken, salad and... More

Indian is my favourite food. I feel blessed that we have Taj Mahal in Umeå, as in the North of Sweden there are only be 3-4 Indian restaurants. Their lunch buffet is insane. It is such great value for money. Whenever I'm on a business trip to Umeå I have lunch at Taj Mahal and often if I stay the... More

I like indian food very much but seldom I find restaurants in Sweden offering real good indian food. Either deficiencies in the quality of food or taste (or both). In this case, the taste and in particular the high degree of sweetness in everything from rice and nan bread to food of different kinds. Only tandori chicken is not sugar... More

Great ambience, Courteous and friendly staff. Great food! the chef is willing to make food as per our (indian) preference as the locals prefer their food low on spice.

I love Indian food and do buffets often, wherever i go. The reviews of this place had me convincing my friend we should go there instead of the slightly lower rated Gandhi. We went toward the end of the lunch buffet, and/or they may be getting complacent and lazy being rated in the top 10% of restaurants in Umea. It... More

The food here is great Indian food. The place it self is a bit rundown but the good makes up for it. They have a lunch buffet that is above average, but it's the same all the time which is a bit boring.
