It was over crowded, food was cold but the idis were heavenly .
They can definitely improve the service and the over all ambience considering it is well established and is a strong brand . I did feel a lack of hygiene

I visited their Ambattur restaurant for breakfast, as soon as you arrive, banana leaf is laid out with person coming up quickly to take order, as expected Idlis are ready & Hot to be served with variety of Chutneys, being Mumbaite, I could not had better Idli's than here. Idli's were follwed with Hot Filter Coffee.Good day to start..

Murugan Idly shop is a little bit of a odd place - because of their legacy and brand, you go in with high expectations, but get disappointed. The service is definitely not upto the mark for a 40 year old business. The food for the most part is good, but a little inconsistent - e.g. salt in the kuzhi paniyaram or the onion uthappam not evenly cooked. The thing that bugs me is that no item is a killer dish unlike say in Saravana Bhavan, where the sambar is outstanding all the time. Despite all this, MIS is a good place for reasonably priced above average south indian tiffin items

One of the busiest restaurant in chennai. Main attraction is this is on the beach road but not open. This is an AC restaurant. Very famous of Idli (good south indian Idli with 4-5 chutney and sambar). So if you are a Idli fan this is right choice. However, this is server on banana leaves, the chutney and sambar need to be careful.
