This is an edited review; I had initially given them 4 stars in 2015 with a complaint that the place is too small and the staff too stretched. I went there 3 years later (May 2018), and turns out they've moved to a bigger place!...More

This place is close to Mustafa ..and their USP is amazing chutney. Please don't forget to try Butter Uttapam and Idlis...Cheap prices but delicious options.

Entire singapore is full of non veg restaurant. It becomes difficult for veg lovers to find a good veg restaurant. Murugan idli shop is the place where you can give a treat to your tongue.

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.
