That is when we noticed 3 tables in a row totally empty but with "no service" signage... More

Since it was marriage season they didn't have accomodation and they suggested Sitthi residency and were kind enough to get the phone number also. Very nice of them. Food in Murugan cafe was good and reasonable. People here... More

Typical TN Restaurant. Noisy, crowded, and unclean. Food is decent though. Service is pretty fast and price is low. I think it augurs well for the regulars and the floating population, which comes to Kumbakonam for the pilgrimage trips

We had lunch and it was quite tasty and reasonably priced. We enquired with a few locals and everyone unanimously suggested Murugan cafe

I went there in Jan 2011. the local guys recommended. but the staff were very unfriendly there. I won't recommend. I wish i had been to better restaurants, but in that area we didn't have that many options.
