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.

First time here and we loved it. Felt like being at our local Restaurant in England. Service very good and some interesting dishes but the Chicken Tikka Massala was excellent!

I love their spicy dishes,the combinations of tastes.Not to mention the warm Naan bread.Delicious.

Service people are great,kind and helpful.
It has been a couple of years that I discovered this wonderful place and keep coming with my girlfriends for a special treat

The menu was varied and had lot of vegetarian options and food that I have not seen at most Indian restaurants. Ask for a room in the back where the booths are if you want to have conversation. Also,. make reservations as the restaurant was full. The food was delicious and although expensive, I had enough left-overs for three more meals at home!

Something weird going on with the orders that day. Whiskey sour was just watery and badly made. And the pineapple raita was dollops of yogurt put on top of pineapple chunks. Ambiance was so so with an extremely noisy village of folks at the table next to ours.

Really enjoyable except for the noise level. Hard to carry on a conversation. I hope that the owners/manager call in someone who can offer solutions for dampening the sound. Too many hard surfaces.

It was very busy/crowded for lunch on Valentine's day, so it was a good thing we made Open Table reservations! The stressed hostess tried to sit us way in the back near the restrooms -
which you can definitely smell - yuck, so we requested the very next table available in the front section of the restaurant which only took 2 minutes. Buffet had a good assortment, constantly refreshed, tasty, There were many chicken dishes, only one lamb dish, and plenty of veggie dishes to choose from. Even though extremely busy, we had good cheerful service at the table.

Predictable each time. Which is good. Sakoon is one of the few Indian restaurants in the Bay Area that offer a decent dine in experience.

The menu has great variety, and the preparations while simple, taste good - guess that's what matters most. The service is attentive, and food arrives reasonably quick.

Tried the chicken, the lamb, and breads, and all were done well.

I got us off to a bad start, asking for a table (as oposed to sitting at the bar). The food was tasty and table service was fine. Vegetarians will be stymied by extensive use of ghee (butter) and paneer ("cheese") in otherwise vegetable dishes. But omnivores will find lots on offer.

We are a regular at Sakoon but won't be returning. The service was outright rude. Food took an hour to come out. We arrived a little late which we let them know well in advance. When we reached the restaurant, the lady at the front literally asked us to eat and leave quickly because they had a lot of reservations that night.

Went for a birthday dinner. Food was great and service was good. Don’t like the hallway seating but it was also convenient away from the high traffic seating area. Veggie biryani was my favorite while both Kofta and malai panner we’re both very tasty. Highly recommended for both team lunch( have done in the past) or casual events with friends and family.

Large selection of authentic Indian meat and meatless food offerings. Nice desert selection. The Naan is very nice and flavorful. Nice ambiance.

I would recommend you make a reservation as this place gets really busy during the lunch buffet.

Seekh kabab was a little on the dry side. In the past when I've eaten here, it was usually perfect. Gosht (lamb/goat) Malabar was quite good as was Tarka Dal. Tandoori Roti was a little over-done & became quite hard. Would have been nice with a little dab of ghee on each Roti.
Manager seems to be working much harder and picking up slack from waiters. Waiters did not write down your order. Wonder what happens if they get it wrong.

A horrific dining experience awaits you at Sakoon. The waiters DO NOT approach tables with waiting customers. We had to wave one down after a long wait and even then the gaggle of waiters just balked and looked at each other.

Let me repeat that. We had to wave at a gaggle of waiters to come help us but they all balked and looked at each other as if there was no one there to help. Finally, someone volunteered to greet us and get us water after 10 minutes.

Be prepared to hear "I'm not your waiter" from the ENTIRE waitstaff and hosts as they walk by. We had to wave people down for water. For drinks. And to place our order. We also had to BEG for our food to be brought to our table. "We just have a large party we're serving right now."

Horrible service and experience.

The food was good, would definitely try the achari seekh kebab again. However, the house chicken curry (murg sakoon) was not as flavorful. Good ambiance and service. During the meal, the staff and hostess got very antsy about our time to finish and wanted to hurry us along - this happened during rush hour at the restaurant around 8 pm on a Sunday, and they had patrons who specifically wanted our table. While I don't blame them for inquiring, we would have appreciated a little more tact.

One of te best Indian restaurants in the Bay area. Sakoon always has delicious food. The tandoori chicken was excellent in flavor and texture. The Aloo Gobi has lots of perfectly cooked cauliflower. The Sunday buffet also had a chat station with superb condiments. The desert station had 4 different deserts including scrumptious Gulab Jamon. The waiters bring fresh nan to the table. There is absolutely nothing left to be desired. We loved it!
