I had been to this place during lunch time. Though they have meals at that time, they were happy to serve me 'tiffin'. The moouth watering idlis melt in your mouth. Try them with all 4 chutneys and sambhar. My personal favourite was the ghee podi idli and the podi onion utappa. You don't get this anywhere else.

Best place to have high-quality South Indian Breakfast and tiffin items. Their Idly are super soft served with 3-4 chutney varieties and hot piping sambar. Next go for Ghee-Podi Onion Utthappam to fulfil your taste-buds and end it up with filter coffee. They serve all these on plantain leaf for the surreal feeling.

Murugans idli shop was a unique one when they opened it. Since then we see many branches. The idlis are soft and tasty, their onion oothappams using sambar vengayam is delicious, I will recommend Murugan idli shop to all those who want south indian tiffin

This is a an amazing restaurant. Very rustic in service but an extraordinary experience to dine there. Food is served on banana leaves and (wow!!) what could I say? Their service very prompt and kept serving until you could eat no more. Very reasonable in price and worth every cent....!!!!

In Murugan idli shop, the tiffin items are very tasty particularly podi idli and podi onion uthapam. The tiffin is served with varieties of chutneys which make food stuff still mouth watering. But not good for regular eating and oil and ghee is too much in the foodstuff. Frequent and Long run eating not advised considering health. They have to... More

They serve all variety of South Indian dishes. Quality and taste of food is really good. The place was crowded when I visited and I think that is the case on almost all days. For the given crowd, service is good. But there is scope for improvement.

Great food, speedy service and helpful staff. Even though most of the servers didn't speak english, we managed to understand each other ! The podi idli and podi uttapam were beyond fantastic... the vada and chutneys were also nice. idlis were soft and buttery and just the best ever!
