Good Indian food in a surprise location

Went for dinner with my wife and another couple at the other couple's suggestion. For years I'd never visited the downtown area of Northfield, only the suburban outskirts of town.

Chapati has a wonderful lunch that changes each day. They also have a wonderful menu. Their nann is second to none. This really is one of the better restaurants in Northfield.

Service was great. Food very good. Prices seemed reasonable for the quality. The nan was so tasty we had to order more. sharing dishes is the way to go. Especially if you are new to Indian food.

The food is o.k. but the service is just, well, silly. The vacuum started up before we, and others, had finished our meal. Nobody came by at any point to ask how everything was or if we needed anything. Extremely poor choices made by hiring staff but perhaps the talent pool is thin.

We find Chapati the best place to gather after attending St.Olaf music concerts! The atmosphere is so comforting and great space to get together with family and friends! The food is delicious and staff is friendly and helpful.

Did not find it advertised that they close between lunch and dinner. Drove from Owatonna and found out from another shop that we would have to wait 2 hours. Coming here was the only reason we came to Northfield. ..now to think of plan B.

The food is OK, the service is good. The lunch buffet is decent. The dinner prices are way too high for what the food is. Better bet is find Indian in the cities or learn to make your own.

Chapati serves up quite good Indian food in a pleasant setting adjoining the Archer House River Inn. The menu includes all the staple Indian dishes (curries, vindaloos, kormas, biryanis, kababs, tandooris, etc.), organized into categories: traditional, tandoori, and biryani. There's a limited wine list ($7 per glass) and four beer choices, including two Indian imports. Service is OK (though my... More

The menu is quite extensive, and we ordered a mixed vegetarian plate starter, and three main courses. The starter was fine (papads, pakoras and samosas). My main course (veg dhansak) was tasteless, and very disappointing. I asked for it to be made hot, but it was totally bland. I would not go back again.
