Nice to have a decent Indian restaurant in Northfield... thanks to a transplanted Brit owner. Food very good, prices fair, but service is mega slow. And have been there three or four times, and it is always like that, not just an isolated occasion. If you are not in a hurry, great place to try Indian food.

I did not care for Indian food at all, even that served by my cousin's wife who is Indian. However, the food at Chapati changed my mind! We ate there with friends who knew what dishes they enjoyed, and we were not disappointed. I can't remember any of the dishes we ate, except the naan bread, but every thing was... More

The service is much to be desired here. They are slow serving meals and tried to turn us away on a Friday night because the kitchen was "too busy". We had them put us down on the waiting list, gave them our name and cell no., and went to a bar close by (within the same building). They never called... More

We ate at the lunch buffet, and all three of our children (all under 13) enjoyed the food, as did we. The chicken garam masala was really hot and spicy, and the chicken methi was also exceptionally yummy. Our children enjoyed the tandoori chicken, rice, naan, mango pudding and more. The meat was white meat, not tough remnants or less... More

We went for Sunday lunch and the food was amazing. The price was fair and the buffet was just spectacular. Our server was very nice and the place was very unique! We WILL be back again!

By the smells coming from the kitchen indicate Chapati is very promising. The sign outside says the restaurant closes at 9 PM. Going at 8:45 PM you find out that seating stops @ 8:30. Now that doesn't smell so good.

We enjoy Indian food, and make many things at home. I order lamb at the restaurants since I haven't yet tackled cooking it. I was disappointed in my lamb after the appetizers were so good. The restaurant was very busy as this was a festival weekend, but I would think they knew as down town streets were blocked off etc.... More

Reasonably priced, nice interior in historic Archer House hotel. Extensive Indian menu. Tandoori chicken is outstanding - very moist and flavorful. Also try the Alu Naan with pistachios nuts.

Next door to The Archer House is Chapati, a deservedly popular Indian restaurant. I must admit that the notion of finding yummy Indian food in Northfield, MN. seemed, well, a bit foreign. Give it a try ... I ate there a number times during my visits to see our son at Carleton. The food was always delicious and plentiful (helpful... More
