Located in PF 1, this is one of the worst maintained waiting rooms I've had the displeasure of being in. Considering the city attracts so many Indian and foreign tourists every year, a little bit of maintenance on the chairs and toilets is not a lot to ask. The room as well as outside the room stinks of urine. The charging points inside the waiting room are broken. I would recommend sitting on one of those stone benches on PF1, under the fans. They are maintained better than the waiting room.
I recently travelled in 12964 Mewar Express between Udaipur and Nizamuddin in Sleeper Class boarding at 1815 hours from Udaipur City station. For the first time I ordered the food by the "order service" in Mewar Express, completely not related to Pantry Service, and catered by restaurant i believe. They charged me ₹120 for a veg thali. *They do not provide any Non veg options, so the veg thali is only thing you can purchase. ... more...
The Veg Thaali consists of 6 items, which they change regularly as decided by the selling restaurant. Namely- Roti(3), Rice, Yellow Dal/Sabar, Paneer, a dry sabzi with Gulab Jamun(sweets). * Rotis- The roti were kind of thick and moderately warm, which is kind of understood because meal is made before hand, but 3 nos is enough to satisfy your tummy. (2.5/5) * Yellow Dal- It was not Dal exactly, it was sambar as it had tangy taste to it, a bit spicy but completly upto the mark. (5/5) * Dry Sabzi- It consists of Fried Jeera Potatoes which were oftenly packed during school lunch tiffins. It was the best part of the meal, potatoes were soft and well cooked. (5/5) *Paneer- Well i cant say it a paneer dish, because it only consisted of Peas and small traces of paneer, and it was super spicy. So if your taste cant survive spiciness i would recommend not to even taste it, it gave me an hiccup in the first bite. But it was completely okay because i cant resist spice. (4/5) *Rice- Rice was of good quality, a jeera oil boil given to it and easy to eat with the saucy dishes. (5/5) *Sweets- Gulab Jamun was really soft and warm, as symbolising it was made in a good hotel. (5/5)
The food was provided with a plastic spoon, and a nice plastic cutlary made of various chambers so that food would not mix to each other and packed with numerous rubber bands. (4.5/5)
Finally Conclusion/Rating- I would high recommend passengers to buy this veg thalis, comparitively over The pantry food like Egg/Veg Biryani and Cutlets as they are too expensive and charge ₹100 for Biryani with less quality, when you can get a wholesome meal at good quality for ₹120. They take your order when you reach at Mavli Jn around 1900hrs and start distributing food at Chittaurgarh around 2000hrs. The staff is really cooperative and friendly they will provide you food whenever you ask them. Overall rating for food and Catering Service is 4/5.
Station is clean but waiting room on PF1 is not good. There was stinking smell from toilets. There are 2 Amul stalls on PF1 where one can get Amul products like flavoured milk and ice cream. On PF3 there are couple of stalls were one can get some snacks, water bottle, etc. Retiring rooms are on 1st floor. We had booked room 8 (AC) online but did not find it good. We checked room of some other passenger (room no 3 - Non AC) which was good. Only single FOB available at the... more...
end of platform opposite in the direction of Chittaurgadh.
Hi Yes, there is cloak room facility available but don't remember the timings. Apologies for the same. Also, when we went to keep our bags, one of our bag did not had lock so they refused to accept it. Also, they did not had new lock that we could buy and then keep the luggage.
Delhi Darbar restaurant just outside pf 1. Other good restaurants like Natraj, Gordhan Thal are at a walkable distance (max 10 minutes). They can be see from train when train reaches UDZ. We tried Rajasthan Dal Bati in Natraj Restaurant (2nd floor) and sweet pan (ground floor). It was great. Unfortunately could not try thali (1st floor) or Gordhan Thal restaurant. Natraj does not serve south indian dishes.
