Sakoon Restaurant Review

: Sakoon makes its home inside a former bank where diners bask in an eclectic 6,000-square-foot space dressed up in hot pinks, bright greens and chrome accents. The restaurant is a myriad of areas, including a private dining room occupying what was once the bank's vault, a sizeable hallway with semi-private banquettes against one wall, and an upstairs lounge. In the main dining room, funky-chic elements include three fiberoptic chandeliers and a waterfall that gently drips into a pool of lotus petals. North Indian dishes feature refined, California sensibilities. When cream is brought into a dish, it is done so sparingly. Even traditionally rich curries are executed with a lighter hand. Vegetarian and meat dishes range from classic tikka presentations to clay oven grilled salmon, and plenty of salads, soups and sides to augment the meal. Desserts include milk dumplings flavored with saffron in a candied rose sauce. Lunch is offered as a fixed-price buffet. The creative wine list, well built for Sakoon's strong flavors, features a unique focus on women winemakers as well as a range of eco-friendly choices.
