True t its reputation, Murugan does not disappoint. Hot,steaming idlis and special masala dosa served on banana leaves make for a good snack anytime of the day. They serve you an array of chutneys, some finger lickin' ones. Must-visit in Madurai.

If you want to have hot and tasty idlis this is the right place. Along with idlis you get Medu vadas and variety of Dosas. To savour idlis you have a number of different chutneys and sambar. You can have it for breakfast or for dinner. Every thing is served on bamana leaf. Visit, taste, and relish.

The food was very good. But the ambience and the cleanliness could be better. We expected the place to look modern but it turned out to be like a fast food place. But the food was very good

I have always had a great admiration for Murugan Idli shop wherever be the location. They serve the food in banana leaves which is very hygienic. Also the food is always piping hot and fresh. They offer lot of side dishes which makes the whole eating experience exceptional. Idli, onion oothappam, sweet pongal jigartanda are their speciality. Yummy and amazing... More

Small but a very good restaurant for South Indian Tiffin. Soft idly with Podi/ chutney / sambar. Ghee roast (Dosai) is another must have.
