This shop is now at 76 Syed Alwi Road, near Mustafa Market. It is small but not crammed, with new furniture. Food quality is good - soft & fluffy idli, crisp and not-so-oily medu vada. Dosa and Uttapam could use some less oil or butter....More

The food is always excellent here. Idli’s are soft, fluffy and hot while dosas are crispy delicious. I’ve never eaten at Murgin and had an unpleasant experience. In fact I’ve just come from dinner at Murgin - happy and satisfied. If you’re ever in the...More

Have patience to enjoy good South Indian delicacies. Post moving to a new location in Syed alwi road last month, it's spacious and week lit. However they are short of staff and it's evidently seen when you need to wait for your food. More tables,...More

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,

Too early to make a judgement for the hospitality they have earned. They are known to serve people at reasonable rates. Their purpose is very clear : serve food. As Subham said; this may be a One-Off situation.
