We went here for a yummy south Indian breakfast. Idli, pongal, dosai... Tastes, service very authentic. Strongly recommended. Won't break your budget either.

Those who know about the Original Murugan idli in chennai would jump at the opportunity to have a meal over here. Though not up to the original chennai standard but very very near it. The idlis and masala vada are just amazing. The dosas are also great. The chutnies over here are not available anywhere else. Overall a very very... More

We went there for breakfast on a normal day. The first thing we noticed was that the same people did different jobs. The same person who cleans tables serves food. We peeked inside the kitchen to see a very dirty place. The cashier at the fronts clothes were covered with chutney and sambar.

Murugan Idli is a place which dishes out great dosas & idlis with a variety of chutneys at a very reasonable cost. The sambar taste is plain ok. Dont expect a great place & great ambience & good service but definitely worth what you pay for. The vegetarian South Indian lunch thali only has a variety of diffferent Rice with... More

Murugan Idli restaurant in Little India is a family favorite for a South Indian breakfast. The four chutneys are delicious and a wonderful accompaniment to the idli and dosa. The decor is sparse and the service can be a bit too much about moving people through, but we always receive a nice welcome and our chutneys are replenished as needed.... More

I come here for breakfast everyday! The idlis and the chutneys here are amazing! The staff here are not the most professional, as they talk loudly, yet they treat the customers well. South Indian food fanatics must go!

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.
