This has been a favorite of mine for the past 4 years....but off late I find the quality of food is going down and the prices going up...service staff is getting lazy and casual...without realizing the customer eating in peace they all keep conversing loudly or start having their meal with loud conversations... That is getting strange ...hoping to have... More

This place is famed for Idlis and Jigardhandas. Loved the chutneys and sambhars they serve, I always end up eating more than usual. Best place for South Indian tiffin and must try in Singapore.

I had heard that Murugan Idli had moved from close to Race course road to walking distance of Mustafa Centre. So before embarking on last minute shopping, I went to Murugan Idli, you need to turn left before Mustafa Centre, go past Mustafa, continue straight after the next cross and Murugan Idli is the third shop. I eat idli and... More

This is definitely the place for South Indian food in Singapore. Best Idly and Chutney collection in Singapore! Can have a meal for 2 at SGD 12-20.

Very disappointed with take away. Instead of masala dosa only dosa packed. Instead of 3 medu vada only 1 is given. Early morning on weekday when there was not much crowd even small take away order is messed up. Once I realized at home and called - manager suresh did not have any explaination about it. No longer murugan cares... More

Very good south indian food at very reasonable price. Please do not expect a upmarket ambience as it is a quick food place. Clean and tasty are the key words.

Best part is it's location as just opposite to mustafa but on most of the day you have to wait as they have limited space to sit down. Variety of chutneys is yummy with idli or dosa, you will get rava,masala, plain dosa and those set thali meals, also have desserts. I find sambhar should have more spices when they... More

Had an early evening Supper here. Service is super fast. Great flexibility in ordering as you have to pick a Quantity of your choice from a sheet of paper. Exceeded my expectations. Masal Dosa was a little on the spicier side. If anything the Hotel can do better by providing an ambience just a touch better than the current one

If you want to know how authentic idlis, dosas or vadas should taste, this is the place for you. There is no other place (atleast in Singapore) that even comes close to the quality, texture and taste of these amazing feather-light melt-in-the-mouth items. Also, these are served along with an array of 4-5 chutneys on a banana leaf and sambar.... More
