Murugan Idli Shop has several outlets in Chennai, and it is opening more at new locations. For real South Indian breakfast items and other dishes, you can make a visit to any of these outlets. You can be sure of getting soft, warm and tasty idlies with a variety of chutneys and sambar. Vadas and dosas too are crisp and dainty. They are all available from morning till night. The name of the restaurant may not be posh but it serves typical South Indian items. It is a hot favourite joint for North Indians, visiting Chennai or settled down here.

What I like about this place - the personalized serving of all ordered items on a single banana leaf(instead of one plate for each item)
What I don't appreciate that much - the instant feeling of flatulence upon eating here(no doubt due to added "soda" in the sambhar, vada etc.), the not-so-authentic sambhar taste, the waiter touching the banana leaf with the ladle every time he serves anything, the price(which is now more expensive than Saravana Bhavan).
Overall, good for a once-in-a-while early saturday/sunday lazy morning visit.
