Welcome to Chapati!


Chapati opened in October of 1999, in the Archer House River Inn in downtown Northfield, Minnesota. We serve freshly made Indian food, mainly from northern India. We have a wide variety of vegetarian dishes, as well as meat and seafood. We also have beer and wine, for a full dining experience.


Open seven days a week, Chapati offers a lunch buffet each day, which can serve as an introduction to those new to Indian flavors, or as a quick lunch. Our table service and full menu is available in the evenings. On particularly busy evenings we offer “Curry in a Hurry” for those on their way to concerts, the theater, or other Northfield entertainment. In addition, Chapati can cater events at your home, office, or even wedding!


Locally owned and operated, Chapati was started when our owners, Norman Butler and Diane Burry, relocated to Northfield from the UK. They saw the need to fill an obvious gap in the array of foods available in Northfield. Together with our sister business, The Contented Cow pub, our businesses bring what is great about life in the UK – pub life and Indian food – to downtown Northfield, Minnesota.
