This is a Singapore branch of Chennai based restaurant chain. They serve pure veg South Indian food. The food is great as breakfast, lunch or dinner. They serve food on banana leaf. They serve 4 types of chatni + 1 sambhar (like daal). All south Indian varieties are great but you can't miss the following: - Idlis - very soft... More

In the bustling mustafa lane you have this modest little shop that sells hot steaming idlis with four different chutneys and sambar (all of which are unlimited). it is not just the idlis but the dosas and uttapams which can just make your day. the only problem with murugan is that one always has to wait and the other is...

We have just moved to Singapore in Dec 2014 and went to MIS for a quick bite. Amazing idlis- as good as you would get in a good South Indian restaurant in India. They serve 4 different chutneys and each of them is distinct in taste and flavor. Though I feel that the variety is not much (didn't find Neer... More

Softest yummiest melt in your mouth Idlis served with piping hot Sambar and an assortment of four lip-smacking Chutneys! Never mind the basic infrastructure as the food more than makes up for it.

The food here at Murugan idli shop is quite tasty compared to other similar restaurants although it's a bit overpriced. Also the fact that the servings are quite small is another drawback. Famed for its chutneys, Murugan idli shop is specially for those who do not get to eat South Indian food often. I must tell you that the chutneys... More

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.
