I'm always wary of visitors to Singapore from certain countries who tend towards hyperbole. Idli were a little better than average in Singapore but not a patch on Tamil Nadu where we've been. We had three idli, three butter dosa with a bottle of water as they serve only that and soft drinks. The bill came to $17+. The place... More

Murugan here continues the timeless traditions from Madurai and Chennai in offering the best idlis on this planet. They are just melt in the mouth. I do not know their recipe, and do not care. I just wish they would open more branches in more cities. I was here for morning tiffin, and at 9, the place was already packed.... More

Have had many times, consistent taste and best idli s and dosa in town !! Both outlets serve consistent quality and service is quick and efficient. Sometime staff is dealing with many orders and requests, by being a bit patient and considerate is the key to enjoy a good meal.

Just back after an Idli meal at Murugan . The soft idli is not the kind of soft, which melts in your mouth. It is softer then other Sg idlis , but still not comparison to soft idli in south India. The sambar and chutneys have a kind of taste, which I never had before in my life. Other then... More

The food was served on banana leave ( on a tray ), four chutneys (yummy food) and hot sambhar. Sambhar and chutneys are served as you come and your order is taken later, its was a bit different then the way orders are taken in India. I ordered Idilli and Dosa, the Idilli was soft and dosa was crispy. The... More

If you enjoy nice soft Idlis, with aromatic sambar and a variety of chutneys -- This is the place to be! The food is great, as a result, it might be crowded at times. Dosas are a bit oily, but are good and crispy. Service staff never failed to pay attention when your side-dishes are empty - they will promptly... More

We went for evening snacks to this place. We had Uttapam, Dosa, idli and Coffee. The food was really tasty, hot and authentic. This is the best place to have south Indian food. The service was very fast, the cleanliness was maintained very well and the staff was courteous. However I felt that price is bit on the higher side,... More
