“Terrific Visit, Great Food, Quick Service”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

I'd heard that the service was slow, but we were dying to try it anyway. We were pleasantly surprised at the service. While perhaps not the most attentive, it was really just fine. We had a variety of plates, which we shared. Every dish was great! Prices were fair. We'll return and keep coming untless the service is a problem.

“great food, sloooowwww service”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Nice to have a decent Indian restaurant in Northfield... thanks to a transplanted Brit owner. Food very good, prices fair, but service is mega slow. And have been there three or four times, and it is always like that, not just an isolated occasion. If you are not in a hurry, great place to try Indian food.

“Changed my opinion of Indian Food”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

I did not care for Indian food at all, even that served by my cousin's wife who is Indian. However, the food at Chapati changed my mind! We ate there with friends who knew what dishes they enjoyed, and we were not disappointed. I can't remember any of the dishes we ate, except the naan bread, but every thing was delicious. Chapati is located in the historic Archer House hotel, and has a nice ambiance and decor.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

The service is much to be desired here. They are slow serving meals and tried to turn us away on a Friday night because the kitchen was "too busy". We had them put us down on the waiting list, gave them our name and cell no., and went to a bar close by (within the same building). They never called us. We will have to be very very desperate for Indian food IF we ever go back. Instead, I highly recommend Indian Palace in Burnsville. Service there is excellent and the food much better AND fresher than this place.

“Surprisingly great Indian food”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

We ate at the lunch buffet, and all three of our children (all under 13) enjoyed the food, as did we. The chicken garam masala was really hot and spicy, and the chicken methi was also exceptionally yummy. Our children enjoyed the tandoori chicken, rice, naan, mango pudding and more. The meat was white meat, not tough remnants or less desirable cuts, and the veggies were delicious. We are not strangers to Indian food, and I can say this was a great meal. We would definitely go there again.
