I have been here once for team lunch, and it was lunch buffet. There were various Indian foods and it was impressive for me. I can't remember the exact price, but I think it was worth pay for it. And I definitely will go again.

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!

I came here for the lunch buffet, just a block away from City Hall in downtown Mountain View. The food was good, there was a nice selection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian options, and the servers were attentive. Interior has modern decor and a full bar. The place can get crowded around lunchtime, but the wait isn't too bad. Will definitely... More

We arrived early and the restaurant and bar area were pretty empty. But it filled-up fast, with several large parties. Suggest reservations if going after 7:00. The food was quite good. we especially enjoyed the lamp Seek Kabob and the yellow dahl. All six dishes we had were tasty. We asked for medium spice and that it what we received.... More

I've eaten both lunch buffet and order-off-the-menu dinner. And I just love the flavors and selection. I've yet to see any other restaurant serve up Butter Chicken at the lunch buffet. It was delicious. Besides a wide selection of entrees and side dishes at the buffett, the warming bowls are small which means the food turns around quickly and is... More
