If you are travelling to Agra to see Taj Mahal and your train reaches at night at AGC. Don't hesitate to book the Dormitory or Room at the station thinking that its not well maintained. I recently travelled to Agra and had booked the AC dormitory at AGC for the night. It was well maintained, clean and tidy. The beds were also really comfortable. Besides, what more do you want in just 150 bucks (approx.), its worth the money.

Can you tell me if the rooms have Western type toilets? I am planning a short trip where I plan to stay about 24 hours in Agra. Thinking of booking a retiring room but all rooms including Deluxe and Ordinary are shown to have Indian toilets only. That is a big problem for my parents. Any help in this regard would be great.

The AC dormitory has western toilets. Can't say about deluxe/ordinary rooms. For that, you may rely on the info given at IRCTC tourism.

LIVE TIPS FROM RAIL DHABA RESTO, AGRA CANTT RAILWAY STATION
Food outlets available:
1.KFC 2.Idli.com 3.Curry Kitchen 4.Chaat Wala 5.Panchhi Petha
*I opted for KFC chicken, Hot and Crispy with coke. Food was piping hot and delicious.
...
more...
Though i previously red some bad reviews of KFC Agra Cantt because they serve cold chicken, but its nothing like that. But certain customers were disappointed because No veg options and fries were not available.
*Secondly I bought Panchi petha, famous petha outlet all over Agra. Gulab Laddo, Doda burfi petha and pan petha, angoori petha are real cravings.
*It was the only store open in whole agra because of bharat band today.
All over ratings:
1. Cleanliness(5/5) They clean the table and take of the meal as soon as you leave the table.
2. Enviornment(5/5) Envoirnment is nice and restro looking.
3.Service(3.5/5) I dont know about other outlets but KFC is really slow, they served meal after 15 minutes, All the outlets were having tissue problems. Customers were asking for tissue and shamelessly they were providing it only 1. Its better you should ask for it before to board on counter for meal.

You can find KFC and Rail Dhaba on Pf no.1. Raildhaba have variety of food, from Chaat to South Indian food, veg and non veg both option. Raildhaba have chaatwala, idli.com,curry kitchen and kfc.JANTA KHANA is also available.As it was early morning i just tried coffee and Idli. Pricing is Ok, but taste is the thing they need to work on. Idli tasted like it was stale and made from rice powder mix. Sambhar and Coconut chutney tasted flat. Menu is attached.You can make payment using paytm,Bhim Upi and by scanning QR code. PARCEL facility is also available.Will review more food options later on.
