Super idlis

If you in Chennai, then one must head to one of the famous idli/ dosa places. My team said that Murugan Idli shop is a good place to eat. So, we went there for dinner. The food is served on banana leaves with a variety of chutneys. The servers get the food one by one and generally one tends to... read more

This was my third dining experience in the same restaurant in the same location. The first one was OK, second was below expectation. Finally i got the right experience in Murugan Idli Shop. The orders were rather simple and they just got it right. Be it the Ghee podi ildi, Crisp butter dosa, Rava dosa, Butter masala dosa or the... More

Murugan has two restaurants in T Nagar and this is the second am visiting in this area. I prefer the other one but this one ain't bad too! The idlis here are just so soft and spongy. They come straight from the oven piping hot and you get to eat them with 5 types of chutneys each with a different... More

I am a regular at Murugan Idli Kadai Madurai. There are more outlets in Chennai. The Resturant at G.N Chetty Road is well served by courteous staff. Service quality matches the food they serve. They serve the food on Green Banana leaf. Four chutneys viz., Coconut, Coriander, Mint and Tomato are great in taste. Tomato chutney served warm makes it... More

This review is about the restaurant on the highway near Vellore (Chennai - Bangalore). Has been there twice in this month. There are not many good restaurants on this highway. So Murugan Idli is a good thought at the right place. Unlike the cramped/crowded/wait-in-queue ones in the city (Chennai), this one is very very spacious, nice looking and neatly organised... More
