If the train you are traveling in does not provide pantry service or if you want to pick up a good restaurant for you dinner or lunch before departure,one can try the following food outlets with my opinion.
1.Refresh fast food-In the station premises exactly in front of pf five and six.Approximate cost is rs 80-100/per person.No sitting arrangements.(Recommended)
2.McDonalds is situated just outside the station.Exit point near pf 1 and just cross the road.(Okay for fast food)
hut is just 2minutes ahead of the McDonalds.Keep walking straight ahead,you will see the Pizza hut sign board.(Big waste of money)
4.Shalimar family restaurant-AC as well as non-AC.Around 2km from CST.Good for non-veg fans.Famous in Mumbai.Catch a cab and ask the cab wala to drop you to Shalimar restaurant,Mohummad Ali road.Taxi Will cost you rs 20-25.Approximate cost is rs 600 for two.(Option only if you have more than 3 hours for departure or else risky)(Good)
5.Gulshan-e-Iran-Famous mughalai cuisine.Same way to Shalimar but before Shalimar.15 minutes walking distance from CST if no luggage.Mostly crowded, so waiting for 10-15 minutes.Cost is rs 300 for two.Same warning as for Shalimar(Best for family and non-veg lovers)
6.Delhi Darbar-Opposite to Shalimar.Famous for its Biriyani.Cost approximate 700 for two.(Recommended for biriyani lovers)
7.Many vegetarian restaurants just outside CST also.Approximate cost is rs 250 for two.

Also add Pancham Puriwala which is on the opposite side of the station.
One must surely go here for some Lip smacking Puri Choles. Very economical too.
The only negative is the waiting time on weekends.

    The modification to the TL Update scheme - i.e. the introduction of the new RAC System - has led to some efficiency with TL Updates. More TLs are being discussed, and quickly moved up. However, we still have on Average, about 300 Waitlisted TLs in the backlog at any time, and our hard-working and diligent TLMs...
