Silicon Valley Elite Get Their OM (Nom Nom) On at Sakoon!

Posted by Connie Chang

On Wednesday night, Yelp Elites had the pleasure of wining and dining at Downtown Mountain View's newest culinary addition, Sakoon! Upon entering, everyone was wowed by the restaurant's colorful and contemporary interior, complete with an impressive bar, hand-carved wooden panels and fiber-optic chandeliers.

Yelpers sampled bites which blended traditional and contemporary flavors representing multiple Indian regions. Wine flowed throughout the evening, as glasses were filled with EOS Estate Winery's Zinfindel or Chardonnay, Gazela Vinho Verde and Villa San Juliette Petite Sirah. Guests also downed shots of one of Sakoon's signature cocktails, Monsoon Wedding, with Hypnotiq, and refreshing Ed Hardy Vodka-tinis.

To add to the liveliness of the event, the mezzanine was transformed into a Henna & Bindi Art Lounge, where Rachna of Henna and Beyond showed off her artistry and adorned guests with beautiful and intricate designs.

A huge thanks goes out to Balkar, Niru, Karam, Michael, Executive Chef Sachin Chopra, and all the other wonderful staff at Sakoon who made this event possible! And of course, thanks to Kirsten of Sapphire Brands and Rami of Frank-Lin Spirits and Fine Wines for providing the libations of the evening. Don't forget to catch the recaps from your fellow yelpers here, and peep the photos snapped by our photographers, Cindy C and Dave K.
