If you want to taste authentic south Indian cuisine, just go to Murugan idli shop. Soft idlies with 3 varieties of chutneys and don't forget dessert (Ice Cream in cup)

Beware if you are looking for something a good sit down meal, this is not the place. I must say however, that their coffee, tea and onion uttapam were out of... More

I like very much Idli and vada, so I visited this nice place as told by my friend. I enjoyed tasty Idli, vada, Masala dhosa with sabhar and radam, sabhar is tasty food and rasam to digest food. Very convenient and comfortable place to visit and welcomed to satisfy stomach.

The evening when we went to the Murugan Idli Shop, it was raining heavily and we sat on the first floor. We asked for the Onion Uttapam, Dosas and mind you the uttapam was classic!! I never tasted anything like that and the variety of chutneys added to the flavor. Even my kids loved the chutney. The ambience is simple,... More

I had amazing Dosai and Chutney/Sambar at Murugan Idly ! The Idly was undercooked though. Will definitely add this to my list of must visit places in Madurai
