While in Northfield for the ARTour we stopped and had an evening meal of very good Indian food. The menu had a very good description of the item for those who are not familiar with the dish. Enjoyed my curry dish!

While not at the standards of an international, embassy-located Indian restaurant, it is a pertinent representative of the Indian palette in Northfield. Chutneys were "delightful" without the flavors being muddled. Had 1 large appetizer and 3 entree for 5; had some leftovers (which I will be eating in a few minutes!). Heat / spice level was Minnesotan; feel free to... More

The menu has quite a few choices. We love the Chicken Curry, Aloo Matar and various other tasty dishes. Everything we have had is delicious. The service is very good, and if it is not too busy it is nice to linger after a wonderful meal sipping tea. We often find the portions are so large, we have plenty to... More

I have gone to Chapati many times when I want to have a remarkable Indian lunch. The setting for the restaurant is made up of several rooms of the main level of the historic Archer House River Inn which creates a pleasant dining atmosphere. The only problem with the lunch buffet is that it is so tempting to try everything.... More

We went to this restaurant on a Saturday night right when they opened - at 5. We sat down at an empty dining room. The menu was varied, the service was excellent, and the food was very good. By the time we left an hour later there was a line out the door. If you like Indian food this is... More

Came here on a Saturday. My companion and I were among the first at the lunch buffet and the food was cold....bad sign...obviously it wasn't fresh. It was rewarmed from the night before or...? It was all just okay. Service seemed distracted and not very friendly as though they were annoyed to be working on the weekend. Maybe ordering off... More

We've eaten here several times on trips to Northfield (college drop off and pick up) and found the food excellent. The buffet has had a nice variety on our couple of lunch visits. A good Indian restaurant in Northfield is perhaps unexpected, but don't pass it up.

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. Northfield is a college town, plus the Cannon River cuts through it, so duh for me for being so geographically and culturally ignorant. Chapati is situated in an old hotel.... More

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.
