The brochures and the websites rave about the food, here is a photo tour of our meals on board. White tablecloths and real China are part of the meal experience, included with your train fare if you are in the sleeper class accommodation part of the train. Passengers that just ride in the regular seats have a little train Cafe they can buy food from, but otherwise are not allowed into the fancy dining car.
We boarded the train in Vancouver on a late Monday night evening, so there was no dinner service upon departure.
