Located within 5 minutes walk from the East gate of Meenakshi Temple, this is a must visit restaurant. It servics soft idlies with five types of chutnies. Their Jiger Thanda (a signature drink of Madurai) is also very cooling and refreshing.

Food at this shop in almost all towns is pretty much the same, quite mouth-watering. All south-indian delicacies are readily available, with their typical chutneys and podis. Absolutely recommended.

The oldest Idly outlet in Madursi, serves the softest idlis with five varieties of Chutnies on banana leaves. The other items on the menu are equally good but the best is the Jigsrthanda a soft drink mixed with ice cream, just out of this world.

Very Bad service & quality of food. Even when only our table was to be served, the whole restaurant was empty, it took at least 30 minutes to attend us.

Murugan Idli Shop is located Not very far from Madurai Meenakshi temple on one of the very busy streets. No need for navigation map here. Almost everyone knows this place. Even the rickshaw pullers. Food is as close to authentic as you can get outside a South Indian kitchen. Rates are almost Bangalore ones. But it's a must visit for... More
