We tried Sakoon for the first time last weekend. I thought that the restaurant staff were professional, courteous and attentive. Saul served on us and he was very pleasant.

We reached half an hour after opening on a Saturday, and the buffet was already packed to capacity. Service was prompt and courteous. The lunch buffet selection is amazing and the food is authentically delicious. Live food station with Pav Bhaji hash served hot off the griddle was a good touch. One of the surprise elements was the dessert -... More

This is my favorite Indian restaurant in the bay area and possibly in all of the us. Great food and very attentive staff. If you really like hot dishes the ghosht vindaloo is it. But butter chicken and goa shrimp are outstanding as well. The wine list is also very good. Highly recommended

This is the best Indian place I have eaten at in the Valley. Being Indian born in England, I am used to a very high standard of Indian food. Sakoon always seem to meet this. Highly recommend this for the fussy eater!
