On Saturday, 30 September 2023, the Minister of State for Railways, Darshana Jardosh, inaugurated a unique coach restaurant at the Visakhapatnam Railway Station, the fourth of its kind in Andhra Pradesh. Located near Gate Number 1 of the station, this restaurant was developed with Rs 15 lakhs using an inoperative coach.

The railway officials informed that this facility will be open 24×7 at the station. Named the Visakha Food Express, this restaurant has a dining facility and a Mandi-style sit-out. The Waltair Division has leased out this eatery to a private vendor and will generate a revenue of Rs 62 lakhs annually through this initiative.
