Sakoon invites you to embark on an extraordinary culinary journey of India. 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.

This is the second time for me at Sakoon, unfortunately it was disastrous.

# Chilli Chiken in starter - cold, chewy, distasteful
# Naan/Bread service at table - 20 mins after we sat down which is extremely slow and this happened twice. We had to refill our food as it was ll cold by then
# Yakhni pulao had no meat.
# Lack of biryani in buffet menu

Stale food! Stay Away!!
There are only two stations for lunch buffet - Non-veg & Veg. There were long lines at both the stations.
Most of the vegetarian curries tasted as if they were made a while ago & slathered with oil, cream to hide staleness. Even rice was oily. That's not normal.
Chicken Tandoori, desserts were decent.
I have also tried Sakoon, Mtn View for dinner. Again the food was too salty & oily with too much cream.

Sakoon is an authentic Indian restaurant in Bay Area. It’s good quality is very consistent and is amongst the very few places that hold the standard.

Fabulous food! DO NOT MISS THE GULAB JAMUNS! They are India level - soft and warm and melt in your mouth. We also had Dahi kabab, dal makhani, palak paneer, different types of naan and rumali roti(not as thin as India but decent), Raita, Raj kachori(not as good as India but decent). All the rest were good. Portions of dishes are large! Order accordingly. Food comes fast so can always order more. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Way way better than Amber and other local North Indian eateries

Bombay garden with a different name , food is not even close to Sakoon in Mountain View. It was normal/regular buffet with a big price tag.
They ran out of food even before closing time

I went on Mother's day and the had lot of folks and were bit overwhelmed with the demand. So I would have rated them all 5 starts. The food was excellent and very tasty. Would be visiting them often.

It was a fun time at the restaurant with couple friends from work. We tried the buffet and loved it. There could have been more variety in the main course spread. Suggestion: Please add Chicken biryani, Mutton biryani to the buffet menu everyday.

The ambience was great. Great place to go with family and friends. Has both veg and non-veg options with sweets in the end. The manager was very good. I went with an infant and he provided us a very spacious place.

It's a good place to have a family dinner. Food was not too spectacular but decently good.

Decor and ambiance is pretty good and they have remodeled the place.

When I reached the restaurant they said they can’t take us as many people booked through open table and they were not conveyed. Also there were so many people waiting if they wanted they could have followed up with open table and contact each people that they can’t accomodate us. The receptionist also was very rude and was not apologetic at all for this mess. They screwed up my Valentine’s Day.

Excellent buffet. The service was good and quick. They also offered to replace one of the buffet curries with another one coz of dietary restrictions. They offer Jain food which was a plus for the group. Overall nice ambience.
