Please give the name of the restaurant or a map of the place. In a city like Gwalior very hard to find if you just say 500 meters from RS. Which direction etc. should be given otherwise an useless tip.

For Veg lovers:
"Chokho Jeeman, a Marwari Jain restaurant" which is at Left side on Lane to Main Road from Station exit on platform no. 2 (5 minutes Walking Distance) is worth trying.
One can get Pure Veg Jain Thali at Rs110, 120 and 140. and for children its Rs80. No limit for Chapati, Daal Rice, Paneer, Bhaji etc, served in Marwari style.
NO sharing of Thali, each member has to take its own. and Opens only at Evening time(7 pm onward)
Its very reasonable, one cant resist to praise it. Very clean and Simple food unlike spice food at hotels.
For Non Veg Lovers:
Just in Front of Chokho jeeman or at Right Side of Lane to Main Road from station exit at platform no 2. (5min walk), there are many hotels Specifically famous for Spicy Non Veg foods.

yes its one of the finest restaurant one can get in this cost. Best is its simplicity in food. Village type environment with Marwari style, and many times they play marwari touch songs

This food tip is based on my second experience with this train from Kulem to Pune. On our first expedition, we carried home made food and hence didn't taste the pantry food.
We ordered Veg Biryani and Egg Biryani from Meals on Wheels vendors.
Myself being a vegetarian had the Veg one while my friends had non-veg ones. The Biryani was one
of the worst items I have ever had on a train. The rice was half cooked and it was tasteless. Same was the case with Egg Biryani with the same tasteless rice with Egg added. The Veg Biryani and Egg biryani cost Rs. 80 and Rs. 90 respectively.
Some other food items like Veg Pulav, Chow Mein and Veg Lunch are available from the same vendors but after this horrible experience, I couldn't risk trying.
The Dip Tea served by Meals On Wheels is good and ask for a biscuit packet(Digestive Marie) if they don't serve it.
Ice Cream:
The Ice-Cream they sell is from a company called Anmul, the exact duplicate of Amul.
What to have?
Bhel: The train reaches Londa Jn by 6.40pm where you get yummy Bhel. The Bhel costs Rs.20 per plate and is totally worth it. I myself had two plates of it.
Chapati Bhaaji: The train reaches Belgavi by 7.45 pm where you get really tasty Chapati- Bhaji. The cost is Rs 30 per plate in which you get 3 Chapati's and a plate of bhaaji. We ordered one plate to taste and it was yummy. Before we could order more, the train departed from the station and to our dismay, we were forced to have the Biryani from Meals on Wheels. The train halts at Belgavi for a mere 5 mins, hence try to make it quick.
Final Tip: Carry your own food if you can and never order from Meals on Wheels on this train.
Pic: Yeah, that's veg biryani!!!

anmul ice cream lolzzzzz
there are many places in railways,where local venders provide better food than onboard.
some routes are-
bbs - jsg route
kota-bina route
most routes in tamil nadu/kerela border{local venders offer biryani/pulav,awsome taste for rupees 30-40}
jaipur-adi route
never travelled on konkan rail route,but your tip was useful.

Meals on Wheels is once of the worst food vendor on almost all the routes. IRCTC is the best.
I think railways should ban meals on wheels.
