While we were at Hotel Sitthi Residency between April 10 & 12th April, we visited Murugan cafe thrice. The food was OK but the service was pathetic. Typical of Tanjore district, the servers were reluctant to work and the cleaners too.

Clean and Quality Hotel on Mutt Road Kumbakonam. The Idlis are so tasty that we still savor them even after 3 weeks.( You will not get them if you visit after 8.00 am for breakfast) They also serve good Poori Masala, Different Dosais etc. Good Vegetarian Budget Eat Out for Family

It is a clean and wholesome south Indian place. I found the idlies hot and soft and their coconut chutney sufficiently thick as to pass for 'getti chutney' rather than the watery versions that are commonly available.
