Service was excellent -- attentive and timely -- and food was very good with large enough portions that we had delicious leftovers for the next day. I thought the wine was overpriced given the quality. The dining room banquettes need some updating. The cushion of the one I sat in had a round shaped indentation from so many people sitting...

I love Indian cuisine. My husband likes it on my birthday and other special occasions. We both really like Sakoon. The service is exceptional and suggests dishes that we will both enjoy. I rolled out of there I ate so much.

This was my first Indian food experience and I enjoyed it very much. It's a very warm and comfortable atmosphere. The staff are very nice and the food was delicious. Numerous gluten free options clearly marked on the menu, and staff was pleasant when answering my questions about ingredients. Would definitely recommend and return.

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 ordered Chaat, Soufiya paneer, Samudri jhinga (prawns), butter chicken, chicken biryani, suneri chicken and Kesrai Chenna Malai. We loved the prawns and also loved the Kesrai Chenna Malai. The other... More

When our friends expressed their desire to go to Indian Restaurant , I yelped and found this is one of the Indian restaurants around which had a good ambiance and food is good too. We called up in advance to reserve the place. There is... More

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

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.
