The lunch buffet has a lot of items and the food is just about ok. The appetizers and main entrees were nothing special and the desserts weren't too fresh. The place was very crowded and the arrangement of all the food items was not very accessible for patrons. For instance, the desserts and appetizers & chaat items were right next... More

So fresh and so tasteful. Many varieties but not with the price of the quality. Dessert table offers many authentic and worth to try options as well. Hope to get there soon back again.

Many other reviewers have commented on the high quality of the lunch buffet, but the quantity is also amazing. On a given day, there are something like 12 hot dishes, plus various appetizers condiments, sauces, salads and desserts. Thus, the strategy is to try small samples of a wide spectrum of dishes on the first "round," then come back for... More

I came here since a buddy recommend this place. He is Indian. That is why i was surprised to taste the food and thunk it is not all that great. Just good. I was expecting a lot more for a 40-50$ meal.

Never thought I would find a North Indian restaurant as good as Amber India, but based on about 4-5 meals at Sakoon, I have to say that they are indeed as good. The food, the service, and the ambiance have all been terrific! Give it a try - you will not be disappointed!

We come here for the lunch buffet. Many of my Indian friends tell me it's their favorite in the area. It does get crowded, despite a pretty large capacity - there's an upstairs and back room that isn't obvious to see when you walk in. Food is a bit richer than some of the other Indian restaurants. I only eat... More

Great cocktails, good food, but strawberry creme brulee came out as runny red chocolate pudding and garlic naan was burnt too much. Cauliflower appetizer delicious
