Travelled yesterday from Panvel to Madgaon.Here are my reviews about this train
Maintainence/Cleanliness:-Good condition.Staffs do their best to clean it.Toilet also was in good condition.
Catering:-No doubt why it is known as 'Foodie king'.Ranging from Chicken biryani to Chicken Lollipop and Veg biryani to Veg manchurian,this train never disappoints as Food staffs will continously be there to serve you.Be sure to eat more!
Railfanning:-Another
...

advantage of this train.One of the best trains for railfanning as it covers almost KR(Till mao-mandovi's last stop) in broad daylight.
Punctuality:-Very very poor.Towards Madgaon side,KR trolls this train a lot.Generally after Khed,train gets looped at many stations for crossing.If luck,train will cover up the delay.But if not,and if u r travelling all the way to mao,then get ready for a delay upto 2 to 2.30 hrs late(maybe more!)
Overall,good train.For food lovers and RF,,try this train.For those who maintain their work routine time to time,then dont take this train or take this train as backup in case u didnt get any ticket.
Thats all,if any point is wrong or missing,please let me know! :)

If you miss this train at CSTM, take PNVL local.. All probabilities, this train may still be arriving at Panvel by the time local takes you there. If you miss there also, come back by return local train.

This train is KRs ISO certified train. Best for enjoying the beauties of Konkan with the demography changing from Urban to Semi Urban to Rural.

Best quality and tastier food available in this train with lots of varieties. The Pantry managed by M/s. Ahuja Caterers have been ranked country's No 1. The same Caterers also manage pantry aboard 10111/12 Konkan Kanya Express (another ISO train of KR) due to Rake sharing.

There will be limited options in Konkan Kanya if any due to late running as it traverses the Konkan Route during night time. Otherwise meals are just limited to breakfast....

To experience a restaurant type lunch... One must travel in Mandovi Express..

If History is any indication about Punctuality, travelers should be careful to plan the onward journey. As this train has history of Frequent late arrival at destination and highly risky start time from source.
What makes this train so 'Punctually' unpunctual is not known, but travellers should keep in mind that onward journey / xfer time must have gap of double of normal and that can be as big as 8 hours !!!
If the story seems unconvincing have look at the February 2014 data of dep / arr History.

This train (along with Konkan Kanya) has best Pantry services. Food Quality on par with Premeire trains like Shatabdi/Rajdhani/Durnto etc.
Pantry services are run by Ahuja cateres (if i am ot wrong) & serve both Veg & non veg items.
Enjoy scenic beauty of KR route in day time with delicious food on board..

1 compliments
hwh raj is better than...
I compare with Mumbai/SDAH Rajdhani's food service, which are best in IR, but now few member have complained about food quality in King of WR & King of ER too. So your statements are partilally correct.
