Madurai is my hometown. I don't visit it often though! My father suggested this place to me. I was blown away the food was delicious, hot and fresh. They have this peculiar yet unintended "go green " policy. As they use banana leaves to serve food. I am not sure whether other people would like it, but i personally did.... More

Idlies were good with 3-4 types of chutneys along with sambhar but carry your spoon with you since they do not provide proper spoon if you want to relish your food without mess.

Although it is famous for its idlis, their dosas are not far behind! I had the yummiest dosa here, to accompaniment of fresh chutneys and finger licking sambar! The staff who served us was also very friendly. The jigardanda my friends had was also yum! Do go looking for fancy bells and whistles. This is a clean place with really... More

The idly and dosas at its best. The idly is very soft and they have 3 variety of chutneys. The ambience is not at all good and dont expect much cleanliness. But inspite of all I always make sure I visit only beacuse of food taste.The Butter Dosa is super and a must try.The location is jsut opposite to Potheys.

I am a big fan of varieties of Dosas and my wife love idlies. Both the dishes at Murgan Idly shop are amazing and service is so fast. I really loved eating dosas and idlies at banana leafs using our hands without any bowls and plates.

Yummy idlis and dosas are served on banana leaves. Service was quick but you may have to wait for a table. Three different types of chutneys and sambar were served as accompaniments.
