This train gives you probably best dine-in experience in the whole of IR. If are a foodie or even if you love travel, this is the train for you. You absolutely MUST travel on this train to get a first hand experience. This is all possible because this train has a 'dining car', unlike the regular pantry car in most of the trains on IR. You can satisfy your taste buds by eating numerous things from the menu. Veg cutlet, baked beans, chicken cutlets, cheese toast, omelette sandwich; just name a thing and you get it hot and fresh.

Travelled in 3AC and the coach was very clean throughout the journey. It was cleaned thoroughly at Nagpur and and they also used perfume. The toilets were clean as well. I always prefer SER trains from Mumbai, because not only are the trains well maintained the staff is cooperative as well. Absolutely recommended if you want to travel along the route.

First up a toothpaste(😂) was given and breakfast service was started after whitefield. Couple of digestive biscuits and coffee was given. For vegetarian breakfast, pongal with sambhar and chutney was served along with a couple of bread slices, Nutella butter and strawberry jam. For non vegetarian breakfast, omelette was provided. Remember, they don't give you any options for breakfast. After katpadi junction lemon juice was given. Overall the breakfast was good, but those who do not like South Indian food may have a problem.
They also give one little bottle of rail neer at the start of the journey.

In all my years of travel in this train, this toothpaste is something I'm hearing for the first time. But its been almost 10 months since my last journey in 12028.
Newspapers and a JUMPKIN mango juice after AJJ too was part of the deal while hot beverages are served twice, one before BF and one soon after.

Yeah, even I had not heard or experienced anything like this ever on IR before, but then IR is all about surprises

This train does not provide passengers with any kind of food. Not even a water bottle is given. A vendor selling biryani usually comes right after the departure from Nagpur, but I'll suggest not to buy anything from him, instead you can order through e-catering services or if you have time then take a parcel from nearby restaurants. And please buy or carry a water bottle as well.

This train is the best to travel on the Mumbai - Howrah route.
The pantry food is good too and the quantity is sufficient as well. Shortly before Kalyan evening snacks are served, which consist of a sandwich, frooti, roasted peanuts and a sweet. Then at igatpuri, soup and breadsticks are served and finally dinner is served at around manmad; and ice cream is given after a while. This trip was limited upto nagpur so can only give those updates. Posting some pics herewith

Welcome drink and a rail neer bottle is served right after departure from BCT. Breakfast is served around RTM, and lunch is served at SWM.
Food quality is OK and the quantity is just about enough.
