“Non-sophisticated but tasty homely meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Idly is like a pancake item made out of rice and lentils. It is eaten with sambar (a kind of soup made out of tomatoes, lentils, vegetables under tamarind paste. Also, you can add coconut chutney and idli podi (a spicy side item powder made out of various beans). The Idli podi is available as option. But, don't miss it. Idlis with all the three side things, sambar, chutney and podi are taken for breakfast. The experience only will tell you how you feel. As idli is light tiffin item, you won't collect calories.
After this tasty breakfast, you drink south indian coffee to reach the ultimate satisfaction during breakfast time.
Murugan Idli Kadai, as it is called is famous for the above and enjoy it fully

“One of my favourite places”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

The idlis are soft and the food is always fresh and tasty. The sambar is also fantastic. The vadai is also very tasty. The place is so good that i visit atleast once a month. The only thing I do not like is the coffee.
