Though rates on little higher side, good food is served. Perfect South Indian taste. Could be better ambience and professionalism. Trusted place for sole veg food.

A little expensive but worth eating here. No stomach illness. Very light food. My personal favorites were Sambar Idli, Podi Idli, Pongal, Coffee.

The Murugan Idli Shop is a must visit restaurant in Little India. They serve amazing Idli's and Dosa's along with 4 type of chatni. This place is mostly crowded but the service is quick. One must definitely try their milk peda after having a meal.

Used to go there a lot but now very occasional .. taste is quite ok though may not compare the original Madurai taste esp main Madurai specialities like idli, jigarthanda .. also slightly more salty (almost all items) .. service needs a lot more better - a bit more customer centric ... A simplified menu helps ...

Got introduced through a friend when visiting Singapore. Has become a place of comfort for authentic south Indian bordering on a ritual! !. One of the more consistent outlets. Quality is dropping a bit. .more batter and less onions in an uttappam. . And the coffee ain't as piping hot as it used to be. The pongal is still great... More

Both idly and dosa were not up to the Murugan Chennai standards. The service was quick but the quality wasn't good.

For the cost of food here, they really need to improve the quality n process of cooking. Not fresh snacks or coffee for the price paid.

Staying in Little India

Neighbourhood Profile
Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander past traditional barbershops while local residents in brightly coloured saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colourful shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge. Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts and take in the stalls selling bright flowers, fabrics, and spices. At the 24-hour, four-level Mustafa Shopping Centre, you can shop through the night and find everything from pharmacy and grocery items to Bollywood DVDs and diamond necklaces. Singapore’s Little India offers a colourful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
