I could easily say this is an excellent vegetarian restaurant. Any one who love traditional idli ya dosa sambar combinations or such vegetarian combinations this is definitely the place where you got to go. I guarantee you'll be satisfied by the service you'll get from this institute. You get so many varieties of dosas and idlis you'll be confused which... More

Having known Murugadoss Idli shop from its early days in Madurai, I felt down by both the taste and the service in this modern Murugan. Wish they would ensure the olden glory

Get authentic South Indian Tiffins. Their dosas, idli and vada are their takeaways. One can relish the best of the south Indian Tiffins over here. It's one of the best places to explore

I am a regular visitor of Murugan Idli and Saravana resturent in chennai particularly near to Nanganullur. Both are good, neat and clean resturent. Murugan have wide variety of South Indian dishes and some optional surprise dishes are also served in between the meals. A must visit, when in chennai.

If there is an outlet in chennai worth braving the crowds for, its this place! Do try the onion utappams made from the baby onions. The chutneys are delicious too!

We went to Murugan Idli in Annanagar (Chennai) with lot of expectation. The fare was not upto our expectation and the hyper this branch created. Other outlets may be good. But didn't get a chance to visit them
