A terrific little restaurant that has been a mainstay in downtown, scenic Northfield for decades. They have a terrific lunch buffet and you can order off the menu at night. Can't miss! We had dinner here one night, and the lunch buffet the next day. They also have a room for business lunch meetings.

The restaurant is tucked into a corner of a lobby of a hotel/inn, so you enter through the front door of the inn. My daughter and I ate here at the recommendation of a friend of ours, while visiting Carleton College. We love Indian food and it is hard to find in Iowa and MN. There was a setup for... More

Great menu with wide variety of tasty dishes. We ordered a lot of dishes to share at our table, including Kheema Naan, Samosas, and Pappadum. Our entrees included chicken tikka masala, chana palak and lamb korma. All were delicious and the server was very helpful in addressing any questions. Many people were at the restaurant but it didn't get noisy.... More

Took several of my son's college friend here while visiting. The food was great and service good. Loved the appetizers, naan bread and all the main courses were great.

This was the first Indian food my husband and I had eaten since we got back from India 6 months ago. We were thoroughly impressed with the chai and butter chicken (Makhani I believe it's called on the menu). We also ordered the garlic naan, and these 3 things tasted authentic! We also ordered the vegetable samosas - very good,... More

I always enjoyed this restaurant when I lived in Northfield. A decade later, this place still has great Indian food. We had the dinner for two, with vegetable korma and lamb malay for our main courses. Both were delicious.

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
