Terrible food throughout!
There's apparently no egg curry and the non-veg option comprises two bits of what seemed like a starved chicken neck and spine (Yuck!)/ Rice was undercooked and dal was bland. On two occasions the soup was sickeningly sweet (some tomato-pumpkin mix)
The only thing edible was sweet curd (night only) and the ice cream (dinner and lunch next day). Breakfast was also tolerable (standard omlet / veg cutlet options). However the ice cream was served 30 mins after the trays were taken back and by then it had melted,
plus plenty of littering on the floor from ice cream cups,
A real disappointment after paying Rs 3200 (for 2A)
I strongly suggest at least one packed meal from home (maybe day #1 lunch)

Whatever will be given to 'inmates' will have to be taken, 'anyhow and anyway'
That is why "Food Cost Included in ticket' trains are less popular than others...
