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...More

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.

Food is excellent. Service horrid. Moderately busy night but there were adequate staff. Three tables were sat at roughly the same time. All three of us waited with nothing but menus on the tables for a very long time. One table asked a buster to...More
