One of the good Pantry car present.
Catering is done by Meals On Wheels.
Food is tasty (I felt the Cooks were South Indian as the Dal and Sabji were giving me the South Indian Masala taste).
One problem is faced was Availability of Ala-Carte Meal i.e Rs. 55 price Veg meal.
bcoz always they charged more money for food they provide Rs.120 Veg meal Rs.130 For Egg Meal & Rs.150 for Fish or Chicken meal
Words cannot describe the excellent service this train provides to its travellers.
Food - Pretty tasty food, packed in an hygienic manner (as per IR standards). But above all the food provided is wholesome. Non Veg Lunch in AC 2 Tier included the following :
Chicken Curry (Tasty gravy and 2 big pieces of chicken), Aloo Curry, Dal (Again, found it pretty nice) Rice, Paranthas, Pickle and Curd.
Same have felt in SL class also.
Very very Safe and No Disturbances at all. Very Rarely saw any Unreserved traveller.
I don't know about others but i really loved the Hot big Samosas of this Pantry.
Due to less no of halts, this is the best train to travel in SL from Mumbai to Howrah and back. No unruly passengers indeed !!
Still average speed should be much more as Mumbai mail with three times more stoppages is very close with miniscule difference.
You can call that 'Slack'.. I agree the averages can be boosted to 66-67 km/h easily. Still it is a wonderful train to travel in. Wont disappoint you !
I have already signalled green
Yesterday travelled between ngp - bsp. 3A coach was up to the mark in cleanliness. . bed sheets were clean. Toilet was clean had odonil in it. Toilet fan was working fine and train was punctual as usual. Reached bsp bang on 16:15
That is the case generally :D
I travelled in a recently POHed 1995 made 2A coach and it was almost spotless
Jananeshwari Super Deluxe Train but their is no charging point in sleeper...its rubbish
Do You Get Charging Points In Sleeper Class In Other Trains ?
Yeah in many train I got charging point in sleeper...its super deluxe train...it must have charging point in sleeper
It might be an odd old coach (pre 2007 era), but these days railways fix charging sockets to old coaches too.
Attached are the pics of Jnaneshwari Deluxe & Samarsata SF Express's Sleeper coaches with charging sockets!

Here is rate list of food:-
Egg Biryani-Rs.60 (2 eggs with curry)
Though menu is mouth watering for foodies, the quality comment about food quality is missing.
How can this be rated as useful ?
The best quality & tasty food with excellent service in this CSTM-HWH route
Unmatch quality respect to other trains in this route
It it is so, it is Useful Tip :)
Jnaneswari has one of Best pantry services.
This time rates are high
Egg Biryani-Rs.70 (2 eggs with curry)
It is better than trains on this route, incl Duronto. Of course, food quality is based on personal opinion
Absolutely. I travel at least thrice a year to Kolkata from Mumbai on this train. I cannot remember anytime, when the food was bad. All along it was quite good and filling, with good service. You can even get extras, like extra rice. If you tell the waiters, they will remember it and serve it to you. of course you will have to pay for that, followed by a healthy tip to your server, at end of journey.
Well,after 12261,this is the best train to travel to howrah.Through the arrival at howrah station is odd(i.e at 3.35 am) still it is a better train than Geetanjali and cst-hwh mail(via nagpur).This train is very well maintained by C.R.Jnaneswari,being a super deluxe train,has a top most priority in the entire route.No one dares to overtake this train.Through the coaches are old (some sleeper/ac coaches are of 1995-made),Still one can travel in comfortable mode.I don't know about the cleanliness of sleeper coaches,but the cleanliness of Ac coaches is up-to-date.Even Ac attendants and food staffs behaviour are very good,through not as good as 12261,still it is better.Dinner/Lunch/snacks of these train is extremely awesome.One must try 'Noodles' of this train.
About the punctuality:-As i said,this
Aryan,you can also rate the train for Puncuality,Cleanliness,Food etc on train page.That would be most helpful for travellers.
