The place is a must visit if you want authentic podi idlis and dosas. This is a quaint place, with an old school feel about it. The tables and chairs are typical plastic ones and there is no air of moderness in this hotel. All these are blown away with the quality of food. There are multiple varieties of dosas... More

The best and authentic food after a long time. Being a south Indian myself, I can't really remember when was the last time I had enjoyed South Indian delicacy. The idlies were the softest I ever had. Must also try out small onion uttapam and sweet pongal. Do not let the simple ambience of the restaurant fool you.

After visiting Madurai Meenakshi Amman temple if we are looking for an authentic south Indian restaurant, this surely will be a satisfying destination. Even though various types of idlies are available, the other vegetarian favorites are there to enjoy. Any day the well roasted ghee, masala dosas will be terrific lip smacking items. The side dishes add flavour and taste... More

Don't be fooled by the shaby exterior of this restaurant, this place boasts some of the best value and delicious South India cuisine I've ever had. The restaurant in itself is very basic but the food largely makes up for it. The staff is great and are happy to guide foreigners through the options. Come here if you are in... More

This place was on my must visit list as many of my friends had recommended this place and it did not disappoint. As the name suggests this place serves idli, dosa etc and not meals. Taste is awesome and total value for money. Must visit while in Madurai. Place is very close to the Meenakshi amman temple.

The place is quite crowded, as usual. Many a times you have to wait for your turn before you get seated. Since it is how it is at Murugan Idli shop, no one bothers really. Menu of Murugan Idli shop is well known with hot idlis available round the clock, vadai available 24 x 7 with podi / oil; and... More
