Perfect for an ideal date

This restaurant is one of its kind. I was not aware about this place in the city until my partner took me there on a surprise date. I found the atmosphere and the concept really cool. It took me quite some time to decide the order, the menu being so different and the dishes had some twisted flavors.

If you wish you have a lunch or dinner in a luxury train, then this place can do a justice to your wish by serving food in its boggy shaped restaurant. This is so realistic that you feel yourself inside a royal train boggy having great experience with your friends/family/else. They have outside sitting as well but why to seat... More

Shaan E Bhopal was a failure for me on the food front but the atmosphere was great and different. It is an experience however if you are looking for some delicious food then probably skip this place. But still it is a different experience with some live music so you can surely enjoy that.

A big group arrived at this special place for a winter day's lunch as part of our school reunion. Prior reservations with soup served on the 'platform' and a buffet vegetarian menu served inside the 'coach' had been arranged by our organizers. It was a sunny winter day in Bhopal with a slight nip in the air. Most of our... More

A nice idea to set up a restaurant in a broad gauge train coach. The ambiance when it started must have been very good, however now, it is not maintained & the staff is just about doing their job. On arrival you get the feeling that you are not really welcome but have to be endured, Food is average &... More

A fresh idea by MP tourism, A broad gauge coach converted to Restaurant, Good food, LCD screens on windows makes it look like a running train. The steward could have been more friendly. There is an option to sit outside, Overall good experience. Name of dishes are amazing like... Toofaan Ganj ki Shabnam Curry, The Flying Rani etc.

We went for lunch to Shan e Bhopal it's an excellent theme restaurant in a real broad gauge bogey. What I like the most is that they have installed LCD monitors in place of windows which gives you a feeling of a running train. The ambience and cleanliness was excellent, but food was of mediocre grade. All in all a... More

This may be a first opinion from a pure veg food expert. I was with a group of three dozen people. Though I had brought outside food here but others appreciated it. Food charges are too costly, especially for non veg food.
