There's a simpler way than clicking your way through pull down menus. I'm a big fan of key commands, so if you go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts pane, go to the App Shortcuts side menu item, pick Safari from a list of apps and then add a new short cut.
Use this specific text: Safari iOS 7 — iPad and then set up a key command to bring up the iOS version of the website. My preference is to use command-options-shift-i to bring up the iOS version of the site and then if I want to toggle back I have another set up to trigger the menu text Safari 8.0.
I find this particularly helpful for view sites that want to force you to use flash video (which I abhor and have disabled in the browser with plugins) to load HTML5 video. This is also good if you want to download video for later viewing when you may not have adequate internet access. It also lets you automatically cherry-pick the highest available resolution by default when you download.
Hopefully this helps.
