TCDD Restaurant

Restaurant Cars

Some of the main line trains and new high speed train sets have restaurant cars.

Catering service in TCDD restaurant cars has restarted by March 2016 with a new concept. The new concept offers limited choices for hot meal. Alcohol is no more served at restaurant cars. New options are breakfast menu (€ 4), limited hot choices (soup – € 2, roasted meat – € 5), cold sandwiches (1.5 €) and hot/cold drinks (coffee – € 1).

TCDD trains with restaurant cars are (as of March 2017):



Bringing own food and eating on seat is very common in Turkish trains.

High speed trains usually have no restaurant cars. Refreshment is served at seats. A small part of one car is snack car, where there are snacks like sandwiches, cookies, hot and cold non-alcholic drinks.

As of March 2017, TCDD introduced new Siemens sets with restaurant cars on Ankara-Konya route (see Ankara-Konya high speed train).
