Best Rajdhani train to travel on, First Class food and service on first ac coach. Very neat and clean, spick and span All thanks to Suresh Prabhu's surge pricing and high flight fares which compelled me to travel in first ac at an already high fare. It felt like a moving hotel. Amazing interiors. Train reached half an hour late, fare is quite expensive for a 15 hr journey, but worth every penny and time spent on it. I am glad I travelled in first ac this time. I got 2 servings of tomato soup and sufficient food quantity and quality was as good as home made food, especially Rohu fried fish. 12951-12951 train is much better than 12953-12954, that is why it has less availability, I was shocked to see so many seats available in august kranti Rajdhani at last minute, now I know why. Also 12951 has lesser halts...
more...
and New Delhi is a much better station than Nizamuddin with Delhi Metro connectivity. Also you have to board the train in the evening 5 pm and you reach next day morning 8 30 am both ways and can start your day.

In terms of food and cleanliness, yes definitely. This was first AC. Even second ac itself is clean nowadays and railway staff are very friendly and helpful nowadays. I don't hesitate to give any tips as they deserve it for their hardwork. I only wish Suresh Prabhu did not apply the flexi system of pricing like in flights but still worth every penny.

Yes it is. In first ac you can opt for whatever you want from omlette, veg cutlet to poha along with fruits and cornflakes, you can opt for more than 1 item. Quality of food in first ac is very tasty. Second ac, you have a choice between omlette, poha, cutlet and Rava upma, quality is satisfactory.

I am planning to travel in 1A on a Rajdhani from Mumbai to Delhi, just to experience Rajdhani's 1A. But since AK Raj. can be boarded from Andheri and it is 1 hour later than 12951, it suits us more. Also reaching NZM is not an issue, thanks to Ola/Uber. Further you get lot of time to enjoy (?) the breakfast as arrival is at 11 AM.
Will I not get same level of food / service quality in AK?

Ya ya, I have travelled in 1A August kranti also, it is fine, you will get similar quality and service, though not sure whether you will get the blue birth ones or red berth ones. Only problem will be too may stops, and Nizamuddin station is a small station with only 7 platforms, it gets too congested with lot of local passengers sitting and crowding on platforms as well. New delhi station is one of the major and busiest stations in delhi with about 20 platforms. The 12951/12952 train takes lesser time and few halts. Almost same quality as both are rake sharing and similar onboard staff too.

Too many stops - No problem, we are travelling for leisure.
NZM crowding - I use Dadar Mumbai station daily, no other station can be as crowded.
AK Raj can be boarded at Andheri so one can leave office late like around 5.30.. For reaching BCT at 5 PM, we have to leave office at 3.30. almost a half day leave and aur bosses are pain in a**

Please understand that general opinions like "good", "bad", "bakwas", "achha", etc. are really matters of opinion and taste.
More details on why the food was bad would have made this tip useful.

Re# 992975-2            Tags   Past Edits
I can understand your feelings, but more descriptions regarding this issue, would have been made this tip much better. First, the impression on the catering lies on the attitude of the serving person. Most of the times I/my friends have seen rude and arrogant servers who things we're getting free food despite paying more than Rs. 400/- in ticket itself.
Secondly, coming to the real issue of food, these people do not even provide sticks and butter before soup, instead giving just soup mixed with toasted pieces of bread. If you're traveling in a group, then, they provide just one tray with tea bags for all.. Food quantity is too less even for 12 yr old kid and quality is
...
more...
really bakwas than the roadside PF shops. It is completely irritating for regular travellers to travel with this train by paying extra money and suffering from hunger throughout the journey. So I had given green signal when it comes to the tip for Food/Catering.
The best food (and value for money) one can get from any Rajdhani means, it is Dibrugarh Rajdhani, in my personal opinion.
In a final touch, these catering fellows demanding money from the passengers in multiples of 100s and if anyone gives less (eg. Rs.50/-), just tells to them that, you take it as my tip and returns or scolds them. Why the h**l in this Earth anyone should listen to these manners less people words by paying excess money.
Unless or until if one cannot avoid this train, then should choose, otherwise, considering the atrocities of catering, please prefer even sleeper class of anyother regular trains, please. Further, please do not suggest me for writing complaint and blah blah blah... I have done enough with this and nothing changed...

I recently traveled in 12951 Mumbai Rajdhani,and liked it very much.The food was good,and the pantry stafs are not like before, they r really friendly 2 us nowadays.The only thing is that u wont be able 2 enjoy standing near the door as the AC attendant will warn u,but luckily the AC attendant was a malayale and we somehow became good friends and he allowed me 2 stand near the door.Only thing i hated was the Loco of Mumbai rajdhani(WAP 7),whereas i expected it 2 be WAP 5😢.Overall safety i can give it a 10 on 10,food was 9/10,puntuality was 8/10,cleanliness was 9 on 10.Please dont travel in S kranti rajdhani express as it takes longer time 2 travel.Thank You and enjoy ur journey In MUMBAI RAJDHANI OR THE KING OF RAJDHANI.

plz elaborate how come its possible that comfort is not good in Mumbai Rajdhani.. both AK n Mumbai Rajdhani has RSA so agar AK me comfort feel hota hai to same rack kisi na kisi din Mumbai Rajdhani me bhi aayega..
2nd thing-- BCT Rajdhani has lesser stops thn AK Rajdhani so i guess end to end pax ke liye BCT Rajdhani better hogi..
catering's story is almost same in every rajdhani now a days.. be it Mumbai Rajdhani or HWH Rajdhani or SDAH Rajdhani or DBRT Rajhani

My friend travelled in 12951 bct-ndls. He was travelling in 2AC. He felt the food was not fresh as per taste in a veg meal and he also felt inappropriate about the tipping rule demanding by the coach attendant. He tweeted to the Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu about the entire incident. Within 4days there was a railway official frm bct division at his residence returning him his entire money by cheque and also getting an apology letter from the minister and a H1 travel ticket in the same train as a upgrade since the entire service was not worth the money. So people please there is a way to reach out to the correct person. Its no point chatting sch lame conversation's here by saying the Paneer was not cooked well, the dal was too watery, wch rajdhani serves better food etc etc... Nothing personal folks.... tc

Re# 973229-1            Tags   Past Edits
Same in 2AC also... Dep date: 5 Jan 2014... Coach: A4.. The attitude of caterer also very bad... He demand tips in terms of 100.... That too whenever he gives food, asks us to return plates immediately and thinking I am sitting for his convenience. One has to finish dinner in 10 mins kind of thing is his urgency.. If we late he scolds... It seems he serves me free of cost... Do I pay and go in trains to get scold from him???? Atleast me is fine, others in my coach are just left him without beating or throwing him out of the train.. Rest of the condition, I leave for your imagination...

Railway food is almost always "disappointing", since it can never measure up to the quality of home-cooked food. So there is nothing new here. Further elaboration (if possible) will make this tip more useful.
.
1. How is it disappointing?
2. Are other Rajdhanis better? If so, which one?
3.
...
more...
Has the food quality gone down recently?
4. What were you expecting, that led to your disappointment? Details needed. Was the food cold? Was it stale? Too much salt? Too watery? Generally not tasty? Roti was hard?
.
Thanks.

No one scold anybody, but the way the caterer behaves, the attitude and treatment from the caterer matters... When we ask of something, he does not respond, how it feels for passenger who over-paid for compulsory food in Rajdhanis??? Before you get-up from the bed (here I say 5:55 am), the caterer serves water and Tea bags, and when you come by 6:15 am after brush and toilet, he takes away tea cups and hot-water, what you will feel? This is just an example of horrible experience we had. The previous night, he gave snacks late at 6 and soup at 6:30 and dinner at 7:00. He was so furious when we did not have dinner till 7:30 and said, we can return food plates food only after 8. You please tell me, how can I adjust my routine for the will of the caterer?

That is the exact word "beggers" that the caterers think of passengers. They should realize that we have over-paid for our compulsory meal since we dont have any other options. Rather than service, now it had become, exploiting the situation and looting people money in Rajdhanis. Mumbai Rajdgani is worst flagship for IR IMAO.

Sealdah Rajdhani staff is good?? what a fine joke !!
There is a vast gap of attitude between the staff of Howrah Raj and Sealdah Raj.
Howrah Raj, everyone is courteous and cool. But in Sdah Raj, all gundas and cheap staff.

Then do something about it, atleast go and complain at the online portal. If possible, get the names of the people and complain at the station. Heck, just tweet the Railway Minister about it.

Why is everyone so obsessed with Paneer in North India? In North East, Rajashthani, and South it is rarely used. I know its rich in protein and expensive but instead you can give an assortment of veggies in the curries or increase the quantity or give 1 xtra roti . Since you are giving curds, proteins is taken care of. Paneer based dish even if its served should be limited to only once a day.

Hello,
Paneer happens to be one staple food in both North, East and West India for vegetarians. It is just like Chicken ( something to eat along with the gravy part). Its not as expensive as chicken. Plus assortment of veggies in curries can prove expensive if they are meant to provide quality vegetables, which may cost more than what paneer alone may cost.

I dont think staple is the right word. It may not as expensive as chicken but still is expensive and AFAIK, is prepared only on special occasions. Even in homes I don't think they make it every day.

AFAIK paneer is lot more expensive than chicken. Paneer is Rs 275/Kg(or more) whereas chicken is not more than Rs 150/Kg. In Bangalore the cheapest paneer(Nandini Brand) is Rs 55/200g.

Depends on which quality of Paneer you are going to buy. Plus remember the pieces provided for chicken dish is little more heavier. Whereas in paneer it was hardly 50 gms and they do pile up a lot more gravy.

Agree not staple food for sure. But paneer is served in occasions and most of the restaurants as a chief food ingredient.

On a lighter note IR should stop serving protein rich food(Paneer,Rajma etc) in trains especially AC coaches. It becomes unbearable after dinner and lunch when passengers start farting(pass gas) and we have no where to run to.

But then the railways should stop cooking eatables which has Garlic, Onion, Ginger :P...
They are much more dangerous and the reason why you get to see farts so often :P

Quantity as well as Quality Food of 12951 which is loaded from Mumbai Base Kitchen for 2A and 3A is WORST. In my Journey, passengers of my coach threw away the tray and straight forward asked for the Complaint book.
Yes, Food of 12952 From Delhi Base kitchen is Very Good...Super, but again breakfast loaded from BRC, is average, got too good and not too bad also.
Catering is by IRCTC.
No
...
more...

But Breakfast Loaded from Kota was Good.
It Included
1. 2 Cutlets and Boiled Peas
2. Upma ( Common )
3. Amul Kool Pista Milk Bottle
4. Omletter( under Non veg )
5. Bread Slices ( Common )
6. Kachori ( Common )
7. Paper tissue
8. Ketchup, Butter Sachet etc etc.
This is What you will get in 12951 in tea/soup/snacks.
--
Under Evening Snacks
1. A Vegetable Sandwitch, Raw taste
2. A Butter Sachet
3. A Small Samosa
4. Paper Tissue
--
Under Soup
1. Vegetable/tomato soup, Good Taste, but less Quantity.
--
Since we were Served Food Before Entering Surat, and as per most of the People say that Food is always served before Surat, most of the Passengers Deboarded at Surat and Brought Punjabi Thali Food at Rs 130/-, but it was truly Delicious, Available at Platform 1.

2. Is this tip just about Dinner? Were the tea/soup/snacks good?

In First Class AC (1A) the food is awesome and tasty and services are also good. But in 2A and 3A, services are good but the quality of food is not up to the mark.

In my travel in 2AC, I took non-veg food, and my friends took veg food.. Many of us just returned the plate because of the worst quality of food. We're happy with our own snacks that we had from my friends home. I do not know when the railways will wake-up from this complete mess... In premium trains, catering should not be compulsory and make it is an optional, then only, food quality will improve.

As far back as 1995, I had travelled BRC NDLS by Rajdhani, and return NDLS BRC by Paschim Express.... It has speed , as per TT, max 107 kms.
and has good halts,
✓ Pantry Car Avbl
✓ Catering Avbl
Rest is upto you which class to choose... but 2A is enjoyable.
What is recent situation, I am not familiar. I hope with improved customer satisfaction efforts by IR, it must be worth our money.
The station cleanliness was noteworthy, as it was time of Late Madhav Rao Scindhia whose initiatives as RM had paid off.
