FOOD : This train really deserves "The Food King" tag. Wide variety of dishes right from Sheera-Upama to Chi. Lollipop are available which are freshly prepared. Food price is slightly costlier but it is OK as you get outstanding food quality. MUST TRY DISHES : Onion Uttappa, Methi Kabab and for Non-Veg lovers Chi. Biryani and Chi. Lollipop are good enough. You even get fresh fruits.
BEST TIME TO TRAVEL : June - September for Monsoons Scenery as this train covers the Konkan belt in daylight and April/May for Alphonso Mangoes & other tourist places to visit throughout Konkan region.
WHO
...

SHOULD TAKE THIS TRAIN ? : Those who are on vacation and have a lot of time to spend on train journey as this train generally reaches late by 1.5-3 hours at its destination stations. So if you are in a hurry/work/frequent traveler, you can avoid this train. In Ganpati/Diwali/April-May seasons, this train is packed.
IN WHICH COACH TO BOOK TICKETS ? : All the ICF Rakes used for this train are now quite old and a bit dirty as the rake is immediately changed from KonkanKanya(Up) to Mandovi(Down) although cleaning is done. You can book AC Lower/Side Lower berth to have a window. You can even take 2S Window seat and can avoid SL coach as anyway in its daytime journey you don't get to sleep. SL coaches are used as 2S where 4 passengers are allotted one lower berth to sit and Upper berths remain unused or used by WL passengers.
In some parts between Mangaon and Khed this train has high speed above 100kmph such that the coaches tend to vibrate a lot. But the train is anyway late.

Ahuja & Care Caterers. This poster and menu card is what I usually see pasted inside the coaches when I board KonkanKanya/Mandovi rakes.

I used to travel very frequently on Konkan Kanya and Mandovi till 4-5 years back. The food was Ahuja Caterers and it was always great. I once got a egg white omellete, something unheard off in other Indian trains

Even the bread I got with omellete was brown bread and was fresh enough.

I think Konkan Railway is wise and caring enough to scrutinize and hand over food contracts to skilled caterers as of now.

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! :)

Super crawler. 3hrs late. Frequently delayed as told by regulars. Apart from food no other features commendable. Not recommended if you are in a hurry

Agree With You Sir, But If The Quality and Quantity Of Food Is Good Then The Cost Is Doesn't Matter For Me.

where do you get Masala dosa at Rs 25 bro. I think these prices are more than reasonable considering the quality.

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.
