Four out of five times I visited this hotel at various locations(GN Chetty road,T Nagar,Beasant Nagar),service is pathetic.the main selling point of hotel when first introduced is the variety of chutneys served.The service staff avoid eye contact as much as possible when asked to serve the accompaniments or skip serving some varieties if you are new there.dosais are not good...

There are many branches in the city. Quality of the hotel appears going down year after the year. Hospitality is average. All south Indian snacks idly dosa etc. etc. are tasty .Coffee is excellent. All items are relatively cheap. A typical place for local style of eating if you wish to eat snacks like meal, this is the right place.... More

It is one of the best Idlys I have ever tasted. Idlys are serve on plantation leaves with an amazing mix of chutneys. The Coffee is also very good. The service is fast and the meal is a VFM deal. Highly recommended.

I have dined several times here. Food is very tasty and authentic. Idlies are soft and fluffy and served with 4 different chutnies, with option of podi and oil. Dosas and vadas are very tasty as well. Filter coffee is very refreshing.

The food at Murugan's was so delicious - light and fluffy idli, smooth and creamy coconut chutneys and fantastic coffee. I would recommend it highly!

We went to the Murgans Idli Shop that is near the Besant Nagar Beach. We tried both the Dosas and Idli and were served with many chutney but we took only four of them and all were tasty. We were so full that we didn't even had dinner that night :-).

I had gone to this shop before. The food was good. So took my family along too. But when we complained that one of the chutney s served was spoilt the restaurant refused to say even sorry. Even when everyone sitting around us complained too, the restaurant maintained their stand that it is good and continued serving the spoilt chutney... More
