Murugan Idli shop is all over Chennai and I've heard it is good. So went there for breakfast today on my way to work. Was extremely disappointed. I ordered a plate of idli vada and 1 plain dosa, none of which were great. The idli was mildly warm and the vada was cold. The dosa was ok - not bad,... More

I like the onion uthappam served there. The highlight is they add the small onions instead of the big onions which gives different taste. The other dosa items are also good over there.

What I love most about this place is its array of chutneys. The service is also amazing. Note though that the chutneys are available in the original shop and not the new versions.

I recently had dinner at this restaurant few times (My wife was away, so I had to eat out). My dinner time was usually between 7 and 7:30 PM. During my different visits, I had eaten Idlis, Masal Dosa, and Sweet Pongal. The idlis are certainly (among) the best that you can get any where in India. The varieties of... More

My anytime favorite vegetarian food joint. The idly with podi and 3 type chatny is yumm. Dont forget to try the sweet pongal with layer of ghee floating on the top to finish with. If there is any space left, try the Jigarthanda at the entrance, told that is good to cool your body heat

Visited the T Nagar outlet for breakfast.. and not just idlis, even dosas, uttapam, vada, etc, are simply out of the world! there was a daily special onion uttapam which though bit heavy was too yummy.. idlis were really soft, and a variety of chutneys were served on a banana leaf. True and authentic flavour of South Indian cuisine.. unmissable!
