Chennai to Delhi destination reviews

Train #12651 3A - AC 3-Tier Sleeper, Indian Railways, Aug 7, 2019
The train departed punctual but arrived almost an hour later to the destination. I and my husband got food poisoning from the train food. There were no new blankets for the pillows when we got it. The cleaning staff doesn’t clean very well. The upper bed is too cold with air conditioning. The sits are confortable. We saw a rat walking in the floor. The toilets were ok.
