One of the biggest criticisms that the Indian railways receive has been the quality of food that is served on the trains. There is no proper choice of menu and guarantee of taste or aroma. People had been falling sick and many in fact avoid eating the khana that is served. But travelling in trains cannot be avoided. Indian Railways is expanding in a big way. They are looking at ways and means to improve the quality of service keeping the costs within the budget of the average common man. One vast improvement seen is today you can choose the menu food in rails.
The rail network in India is the largest in the world and covers long distances across the country where sometimes passengers should spend overnight on train covering long distances. Book your menu food in rail prior to your departure or while on board. Ask for your favorite food, at a time of your choice from a range of top restaurants. There are no booking fee or delivery charges. You have a wide variety- Jain diet, Chinese, Mughlai, vegetarian thali, continental and any type of non-alcoholic beverages – a healthy change over the unhygienic stale food that passengers have been eating over the years.
Menu food rail is available throughout the day. Order for breakfast, tea/ coffee, snacks, lunch or dinner either at the time of booking your train ticket or later by downloading the app or browsing the websites.
