To go Guwahati, always prefer this train. Because Saraighat is a Good Train and 85% coaches are 2014-15 Made. Any other trains between Kolkata and Guwahati except Kamrup didn't have a Pantry Car. Food was Excellent in Saraighat. Saraighat is Not a Normal Superfast, it is a Super Deluxe Express.

The best possible train between Guwahati and Howrah. Nothing more to tell about the Punctuality, most of the time bang on time or run late by 10-20 minutes.
Food is a major concern in this train. Few years back this train does not use to carry any pantry car, lately PC was added. Food given by the PC is good, well not the best but good, u can depend. Those passengers who don't want to have the PC food can avail for e-catering available or an another option is that this train pulls in at NJP at 0730-0745 pm, hence if anyone wants can have food from local vendors from NJP.

Coaches are well cleaned and maintained. SL coaches are also cleaned well, but the SL coaches are quite rusty and old. Thanks to OBHS if they haven't maintained the cleanliness then with the rusty old coaches it would be hard for the passengers. Apart from that all good.
For Railfanning, it is very good. Would encounter Rajdhani in between. Hence in total a very good train.

This is the best train if you want to visit Guwahati. No questions about punctuality. Almost everyday it runs on time. The sleeper coaches are little older as compared to the AC coaches. Changing points are also available.

One of the finest train i have ever travelled. Majority of the coaches were new ones fitted with bio toilets & charging points were present in each coupes.Coaches were very well maintained & cleaning staffs had done a good job. They sprayed room freshners & even sprayed insect killer when we complained about mosquitos & small cockroaches around our berth.

Although it happens to be one of most loved and favorite trains
...
Over the time after getting new coaches, Saraighat has improved from leaps and bounds in terms of cleanliness for sure.....
Earlier it was extremely pathetic in terms of cleanliness

Of course it does, bt its jus a matter of dinner. People can manage a meal anyhow. But if it could carry 72 passengers extra, in my opinion would be more useful. There are trains that run 3 days without pantry car. For Koaa ghy stretch, pantry is not a must have necessity
