Best way to travel from mumbai to delhi would be by air. The flight takes approx. 1hr 50 minutes. If you do not want to spend on air fare and have enough time in hand, you can also travel by train.

Flight really would be the best. The train would take around 16-18 hours and is an overnight journey.

Any particular reason to think of the train.

Train is a cheaper option to travel from Mumbai to Delhi. No wi-fi but you can find intermittent connection through data card etc.

Suggest train only if you are very fond of travelling by trains. Otherwise just take a flight. There are about70 flights a day between to the two cities.

Book the rajdhani first class - its an experience. Also flying is the quickest. No wifi on any trains as yet.

But the train leaves at about 5pm in the evening from Mumbai central station to delhi the next day at about 10am.

Please explain what you mean by "best" and then it will be easy to help you.

Cheapest: In terms of cost - 2 class non-AC from Mumbai to Delhi is the cheapest option. Takes around 20-22 hours. It's not exactly a happy experience. But it can be done if you are on a tight budget. Ticket costs 500 rupees approximately. There are some trains like Rajdhani which are faster (16hrs) but they are more expensive. They have only AC seats. Cheapest seat on Rajdhani is Rs 1725.

Fastest: In terms of time - a flight is the best option, cost will be anywhere between Rs 3000 to Rs 6500 depending on the season and when you book.
