Good Food in the Downtown
Good Food in the Downtown Area of Mountain View. Make sure you get your parking at the parking complex since street parking is almost impossible. Must go for the lunch.

Cheaper than air-fare to India!
Perfect weekend or weekday buffet get-together spot. Something for everyone.

It sure seems real when most of the customers look and sound like the staff and the menu needs explanation to the uninitiated. (Its a curry then? it doesn't say curry.)
Host tried to park us in hallway when better tables were open, and waiter sure tried to sell, but hold your own and its great food, good service - easy to find a waiter. Most important, that really good Indian food.

Great Lunch Buffet
The lunch buffet was great - very good selection of food and all very tasty. The ambience of the restaurant is very nice and service is good. The selection is a bit different than most other Indian buffets - more choices and different menu items.

Best Indian Food in Mtn View
This is my go-to spot for entertaining a small party of my friends.

Beautiful decor and good food
Sakoon is a very stylishly decorated restaurant with innovative food and beautiful presentation. Great place for upscale Indian food!

dinner is better
first time here for the lunch buffer, good verity, but food quality, the dinner is better (of course the price is higher)
6/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was good, but I particularly recommend the Kankan Fish Curry dish, which was particularly tasty, in a rather creamy sauce.
6/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've been there a few times and never disappointed. We satoutside on a very warm night and that was pleasant. Our waiter was the best! (Beyond just very attentive and good.) We had the cauliflower appetizer which we loved, other items very very yum.

Creative Indian Food
Especially the biryani rice baked in dough was amazing.
Good atmosphere overall for a weekend dinner.

I love their coconut rice!
Sakoon serves upscale Indian food, where presentation and taste come together to provide a wonderful dining experience. I really like their coconut rice; this time I ordered two servings just to have some to take home!

We were looking for a "fine dining experience" restaurant. This one was recommended by a friend. Being vegetarians, there aren't too many choices. This one proved to be a good choice. We enjoyed our experience here.

Great ambience, classy, great food
Sakoon is a upscale, Indian restaurant with an excellent decor and ambience, and reasonable prices. We have been there for lunch (buffet) and dinner, and were impressed with the food, its presentation and taste. Highly recommend it to take clients, have a business lunch or dinner.

I reserved a table in a day advance. We were a group of 13 people. But, we were given table at the end of the restaurant.
I was not asked about the location. This was embarrassing for me to arrange the party. I think they should have given me option for the table location as I called 1 day earlier. If this happens again I am not going to recommend this restaurant to my friend my field.
I was not happy about it.

Upscale Indian food in a wonderful
Very nice restaurant with great service and a very good wine list for thid type of restaurant. Went with the tasters menu and acutually enjoyed the veggie menu more then the non-veggie. Need to replace the fried beginning courses with something lighter! Just a suggestion, as I took food home which was nice. Worth a nice night out.

It was nice. I would like revisit again. My wife was very pleased for food as well as ambience.

Spice is Nice!
I had been to the Luncheon Buffet at Sakoon before - first time for dinner. Our group of ex-coworkers met to share our quarterly eating extravaganza. Ordered a variety of appetizers and entrees to share. Great veggie Samosas and a Shrimp Appetizer that was nicely presented and tasty! The Lamb Vindaloo was nicely spiced, not 'blowing your head off', but definitely on the hot side! Curry Lamb was also very good, as was the Spinach Chicken. All of the dishes were quite good, although heavily sauced! As usual, we ordered way too much for even 6 people, but the variety of dishes made the evening quite enjoyable. We will be back!

Minus the table that kept moving while we were eating, it was a GREAT experience. I would highly recommend the tasting menu, non veg, to anyone and the Kamasutra martini. The place is fabulously decorated with a great ambience. The hostess had some hickies on her neck which I would have never noticed but my husband picked it out even in the dim lighting. She was nice, but seemed to flirt with every male waiter in the room. We had two waiters because we moved tables and both were excellent! The food was very nice and served appropriately in regards to time, temperature, and taste. We were celebrating our anniversary and I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone!

GREAT Indian food in the Peninsula
In my experience, most Indian restaurants in the Peninsula/ South Bay are mediocre at best. This goes for Food, Service AND Presentation/ Ambiance. Sakoon is a gem that stands out from the rest on all the above criteria... and that's what makes it my favorite !
I love the upscale decor of the place as well as the awesome food! That's why I keep going back there and keep taking new people over to introduce them to the place !!

Beautifully prepared food served in a high end way on stylish plates.
Beautiful surroundings that keep your eyes engaged even when you look up from your food
The wine list is affordable and varied. Nice selection of drinks from the bar with some unusual choices. My wife had a lichi-based drink that was refreshing, very tasty and unusual. Very nice creation.
The prix fixe meals are great and so nice to have vegetarian and non-veggie for mixed couples!

Weekend lunch buffet
Good quality food and service, better than average for a buffet. Nice decor. Friendly staff. Our water glasses were always being billed. The food at the buffet was tasty and not adversely affected by sitting in a steam plate. We will go back.

We are pretty finicky about Indian food, so we were very pleased after dining at Sakoon. We had a reservation and were seated right away. The servers were attentive, but not overly so. The food delivery was well-paced and we were very comfortable. The food itself was delicious, nicely spiced so that you could enjoy the flavors, but not hot, just to be hot.. My husband is a vegetarian and I do eat meat, and there, of course with Indian, were plenty of options. We will definitely come back again.

awesome lunch buffet
lots of varieties of currys for both vegetarian and non vegetarians. Amazing dessert and appetizer. simply the best Indian buffet!

Indian cuisine in a modern setting
Sakoon is a blend of the old and new. We eat a lot of Indian food, mostly at the small authentic places, so Sakoon is a different dining experience. The eggplant was delicious and seemed very traditional as was the daal. But the appetizer of avocado and puffed rice and mashed potatoes was definitely a new invention, interesting and tasty but not one of my favorites. The ambiance is very modern, with cascades of lights changing colors. It was quite crowded the night we went, reservations are probably a good idea (on OpenTable of course ;-) ) It seemed rather expensive to us, but then, as mentioned previously, we mostly dine at small local spots, - unfortunately not on OpenTable :-( so it is probably not a fair comparison.

Good Restaurant in the neighborhood
We went here for our company lunch. the menu selection was very good. The food was not very oily or spicy. The ambience of the restaurant is good. The price is very reasonable for the choice offered.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
My primary reason for visiting Sakoon again and again is their food.. Amazing Indian food! One of the best tastes I have had in the bay area.. A little pricey though!

Great food and great ambience
My Kids like the special lighting, my wife and I really like the fantastic dishes! Even the mild dishes are still a bit spicy for the kids, but they still request for us to go to Sakoon.
