Great food, economic but less variety and crowded!

One of best places for idli, dosa and uttapam in Chennai Shakarapongal, a jaggery based dessert is a must try. Overall, great place to out with friends. Being situated in from of Besant nagar each, a visit will definitely will be worth it!

You should not miss their Ghee Dosa. Extremely good. The food is not exactly reasonable but well worth the money. They have a wide range of snacks and served in quick time.

Even though all foods are delicious and tasty @ Murugan Idli kadai, Idli is the best. Hot and Soft idli with 4 varieties anf chutni and sambar is really awsome. Never tasted such tomato chutney any where in Madurai. One more reason for taste is they serve hot idli on banana leaves. I am sure that i will repeat my... More

Loved the idlis here. The onion uttapam though wasn't great. They serve on a banana leaf along with 4-5 chutneys.

And they didn't disappoint: extremely soft idlis, perfectly crusty ghee roast dosa, myriad of chutneys and to top it all off,their special colddrink 'Jigarthanda'. If you are looking for an authentic south indian experience, look no... More

The idlies were super soft and you will not be able to stop eating them. Different varieties of chutneys are also given which adds further taste to the awesome idlies. Well, I am an idly lover so this was like a paradise for me.
