Sakoon - Mountain View
Nestled in downtown Mountain View, Sakoon offers diners a tantalizing blend of traditional and contemporary flavors representing multiple Indian regions. Our chefs have created dishes that borrow from the past, yet are reinvented anew with vibrancy and modern flair.
Named for the Indian word for "peace," Sakoon was designed to envelop diners in warmth and serenity. Upon entering the restaurant, you'll be greeted by the image of Buddha in hand-carved wooden panels, the glow from fiber-optic chandeliers, and the shimmer of a waterfall cascading into a pool of lotus petals.
We invite you to join us for an exquisite dining experience.

Best lunch buffet in the bay area. Love the selection as well as the preparation.
great food and environment, as always. this is one of our favorite places on Castro.
The food, especially kofta, have always been my go to at Sakoon, MV. They are delicious and a must try. However, the Sakoon in Fremont sucks as much. I am sure there is lot of scope to improve the standard of Fremont Sakoon.
Great service, food portion, taste and quality is good. Love the contemporary light fixtures and tile work. This is our favorite Indian restaurant in the Bay Area.
We always enjoy Sakoon! The food is great, ambiance is very good, and the service is excellent. We always celebrate our special occasions here. Highly recommend.
Excellent as always
Overall its expensive, taste average and not value for money at all.
- We ordered a starter and main course, main course was served within few mins after starter, this is a general understanding that main course should be served after starter is done. Whole time main course was lying on our table and by the time we had it, food was cold already
- Starter was good but main course entree (Paneer Peshwari) was just sweet and tasted like Paneer Butter Masala, not good. Naan bread was over done
- Server or no one for that matter had the courtesy to stop-by at our table again to check on how food is and hows everything
It's been a year or so since I have visited, almost two years since a lunch. As a solo diner, I am often coaxed toward a bar or stray/odd seat. I "get it" and its fine. The food was better than I remembered, especially a well-spiced potato dish. Vegetarian items seemd to be on one side of the buffet, meat on the other. I would have appreciated a bit more labeling of contents, though the names were often enough, if you recognize saag, paneer...
Great service. Food average to above average. The curries have more gravy and less meat.
Wonderful buffet. The food was hot which isn't always the case with buffets. It was also delicious.
Indian cuisine but upscaled. Interesting Indo-modern restaurant. Nice menu with many choices - some items not seen at other Indian restaurants. Good selection of vegetarian fare. Very good service and large portions. Really like the lasooni gobi, butter chicken and mixed grille tandoori. The desserts were very good. Never had a stuffed gulab jamun before but it was very good. Better to go with more people to be able to sample more dishes.
Excellent professional services from Checking In the Sakoon Restaurant, to the fast efficient and polite services of our waiters and their professional workers!
Delicious and plenty of food. If any of the Buffet Trays were getting empty, it was fast and efficiently observed that they would refill the Buffet Trays immediately.
Great variety of food.
Starters: Can have more variety than all fried. All 3 starters were fried
Main Course: Tandoori chicken was cold, No chicken or mutton biryani
Starters: Decent spread, choley salad was good
Main Course: Good variety of curries, fish tikka and mutton curry were good.
Suggestions: Add biryani ASAP pls
Delicious food and excellent service. The seating was comfortable and we could enjoy a conversation without too much background noise
Best Indian food we have had in the Bay Area!
Good food, but terrible service. Waiters were inattentive, unhelpful and unfriendly. They seemed to lack basic service training and courtesy. Food took an inordinate amount of time to make it to the table; we had to wait longer to get a waiter’s attention.
It tasted Like yesterday’s food, spiciness was use to cover up the stale taste not to enhance flavor. Will not return.
The best Indian food in town!! Never disappoints. Friendly service and nice birthday celebration .
Great food! Service wasn’t bad but sometimes difficult to get a hold of the waiter
Inspite of the reservation, when we reached there the table was not ready and the server said he doesn't have a reservation on my name .
Sever made us stand in waiting just like any a normal waiting.
What's the point in reserving and going ?
My husband had a fractured foot coz of which we needed a reservation and not stand after going there.
Bus alas! OpenTable reservation doesn't mean much to the restaurant I guess !
Excellent food. Basil Chicken seekh kabab, butter chicken and naan + roomali roti were excellent. Service was good but a little slow. Consistently good food.
always enjoy their food - and the ambience is lovely - quiet - service ALWAYS excellent :)
The very tasty and varied food and the service (though a buffet) did not disappoint. Glad we made a reservation.
Always the best : never disappoints : best Indian food in town
Food is great once in a while. Too heavy and not for regular consumption. It's kind of hot the other day, AC wasn't working.
Greeted at the door at my arrival. Seated quickly and a beverage delivered. No mention of specials, but the broad array of foods on the regular menu provide plenty of options to even the pickiest of eaters.
The food was to temperature, which can be a betting game in some restaurants. Huge portions, and very delicious. The Chai tea was also perfectly balanced spices, and not too sweet. The service staff checked in with me repeatedly, and I never felt unattended.
The place was hopping on a week night. Reservations probably a must on a busy weekend. Highly recommend. I will return.
Even the weather was fantastic! They took care of everything
Good food, some things could have been better. Service was good as well but the food refills for some dishes took a lot of time, though overall it was a good experience with improvements needed in food taste and quality.
Best Indian food I’ve had in a very long time. Well worth the drive from north bay.
Food was great, loved the atmosphere, little bit noisy but ok.
It's lunch buffet everyday, weekend is $15.95 AYCE naan.
A lot of variety for both vegetarian and meat eater.
Very tasty, filling and make you fall asleep afterward
My new favorite Indian restaurant in the South Bay Area, Sakoon delighted us with tasty, creative dishes that were as good as they looked. This is not your standard-fare Indian. Very little that our table of 4+ ordered was anything any of us had ever heard of. Everything was delicious. They accommodated our little grandson (who was a little antsy but not obnoxious) gracefully. The decor is intriguing, the service was prompt and accurate, the flavors somewhat new and exciting. We'll be back.
Super rude guy (Valen?) at the front desk. He could have politely communicated the limited seating choices available . Instead he chose tao condescending and do-not-care attitude. I expected better service at this place. FWIW, the lady standing next to him was way more pleasant and understanding.
Incredible experience - amazing staff, tasty food - definitely recommend
Food server was not warm enough. It would have much better experience, had that not happened.
Our first experience was good but our second experience was not so good, we booked table in advance but when we reached there on time we waited around 30-35 mins.means no value of advance booking n when we got table then nobody was there for taking any order approx 25 mins.. means it was wastage of time n the food was very expensive.. not worth for that money.. I would like to say go for lunch only they have buffet... in weekends it’s difficult with kids..
have eaten here several times...….very good service, wide variety of choices nicely prepared, way above average ambiance for an indian restaurant......decent wine selection and $15 corkage...….has never disappointed
Reliably good food and service. Our default ‘go to’ Indian restaurant
Good menu selections; generous portions of food. Enjoyed the chicken tika masala Pleasant dining room with soft lighting. In general the restaurant was fairly quiet except for the table of 5 young ladies who did not know who to modulate their voices in consideration of other diners.
A good place for dinner before a show at the Mountain View Performing Center, 1.5 block away.
