Have been to the one in Chennai, Bessant Nagar!

Liked the way it was served in a leaf with the different type of chutney along with the podi!

Also had the Uthappam, which turned out really good!

Its a treat kind of restaurant for a south indian food lovers. The must try thing in Murugan Idli is Idli and onion utappam which they are preparing using baby onions (Sambar onions) with ghee.

Awesome experience.

Tried both the shops, the one near Pothy's and the other closer to the Meenakshi temple - Great Food. Very well prepared and equally well served.

Everything we tried was great. Also, the Jiggerthanda is definitely worth a try.

Well worth the visit.

On our recent trip to Madurai, decided to try out this well known place. We found the place so nice that we did an encore on the second day.

what to say, over all we tasted Idly, Ghee Roast, Plain Uthappam, Onion Uthappam and curd rice.Needless to say each one of them was awesome. Special mention must be made for the delicious chutnies, sambhar and pickle.

The place is clean, the staff courteous and efficient. We were surprised at the quantity of food we were able to put away.

One area of improvement is to open the AC section during day time.

Will definitely come back...
