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

The restaurant has a limited South Indian Food Menu. Try the Idli and the plain dosa. Idlis are so so soft amazing. and the plain dosa seems to be made in pure ghee / butter. try thr white and green chutney

We are a regular visitor to the Murugun idli shop because of three main reasons-basic south indian food with subtle home cooked flavor, fresh ingredients and cheap price. They make the best idlis in town and I personally like their utthapams and pongal. We have tried almost everything in the menu and nothing disappointed us. The place is a bit... More

A clean, airy restaurant. Don't expect posh ambience - it is just a simple dining room. No fancy menus, just a simple order form which lists all the food items available to order with a box next to each for you to indicate what quantities you want for your table. Next comes a tray lined with a clean banana leaf... More

The restaurant is pretty small, everytime I visit I have to wait for about 20 mins to get a space, the idli is awesome and they have 3 different kind of chutneys which is yummy, The restaurant is a bit expensive but the quality of food is superb.
