I have given the Chapati such a high rating primarily because in southern Minnesota finding an Indian restaurant is rare and this place is very good. We've been there maybe four times over the past four years or so including yesterday. Their lunch is a buffet but I think you order off a menu in the evening. The restaurant is... More

Ten of all choosing separate dishes which all arrived virtually together, from Vindaloo hot to the mildest. We all ended up sharing the flavours so we all appreciated how good was this Indian cooking in remote rural Minnesota far from India!. We started off with two starter dishes of samosas and other traditional hors d'oeuvres, which rapidly disappeared. True it's... More

It seems unusual to find an excellent Indian restaurant in a small town in Minnesota, but here it is. Obviously, there just happens to be a fine Indian chef here! Try the appetizer plate of samosas and pakoras -- freshly made and absolutely delicious! We had both meat and vegetarian dishes, all of which were tasty. The spices were on... More

The lunch buffet was plentiful, but the food was not very good. The veggie dishes had watery sauces. Maybe it's a difference in what Midwesterners like in their Indian food.

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

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!

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
