Their idlies are the BEST ever. Butter soft.

They serve 4 chutneys with this (non-stop) all of which are hot and delish!

I always order the oil/podi combo to kick things up a notch.

Their sambar is the TN (Tamil Nadu) style.

Their filter coffee is said to be excellent too. (I don't drink coffee)

The rice and other items are nothing to write a review about.

Best to visit off hours, can be extremely crowded otherwise.

I'd heard a LOT about this place since i came to Singapore. As we were in Little India, we decided to try this place this weekend.

The place is a small joint, like a cafe, and hence you might have to wait in queue during the rush hours.

We ordered Idli, Wada and Onion Uttapam. Idlis were soft and fluffy, exact same way my mom cooks. So yes, i liked them. With the other two items, i was not much impressed. Wada was a little too oily and uttapam just tasted average. Sambar and chutneys can be called for refill without extra charge.

We wished to have tea, but they don't serve it yet.

Overall, i would prefer their neighbors Ananda Bhavan or Saravanaa Bhavan.

If you miss home food, murugan idli shop will set it right for you :-). The food is great, the dosas are just the way they make them in chennai. Spicy curry with Idlis, yum! The Mysore dosa is worth trying.

Go here at least 3 times a month. Have been a regular since the last 6-7 months. Great food. Awesome value and clean environment. Dosas, Idili, Pongal, etc..you get to perfection like i am used to in Chennai - Vegetarian food. Highly recommend the same!!! Must go at least 1 in two weeks...
