I really enjoyed my experience here. We had a reservation and arrived early to have a drink in the bar. The bartender was friendly and knowledgeable. Our table was in the corner and felt cramped so we asked to be moved and the hostess was more than willing to accommodate us. Our party shared a number of dishes and each... More

Unfortunately we had a reservation on Saturday the day after restaurant week ended. We had previewed the menu online and had multiple dishes we wanted to try. When we sat down we were told they were continuing the more limited restaurant week menu. There was no mention of this online as we looked at the menu. We even debated leaving... More

We have visited ChoLon several times but I have never written a review. Every time we have been impressed and it ranks as one of our all time favorite Happy Hours. Happy Hour specials are served everyday between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m., in the bar area only. Our group of four ordered all the apps on the menu: Pot... More

My husband and I went to ChoLon for our first wedding anniversary dinner and made reservations far in advance. We waited about 45 minutes for our appetizer. Then a while later, our entrée came out with a side of Brussels sprouts. Our other side did not arrive for another 30 minutes. We had to skip dessert to see a show.... More

I really loved Cholon. Four of us went and we basically ordered every item on the menu. Yes it's a little pricey, but if you're looking for a fun, interesting splurge then this is your place. Don't miss the pork belly buns, they are to die for and I could have eaten so many of them. Also try the french... More

While in the Denver area for the weekend from the SF Bay Area, we decided to try out ChoLon Bistro. This Asian fusion restaurant always seems to be one of the highest rated restaurants in the Denver area. The food was good; however, nothing really memorable. We had the Orzo Cabonara which is the restaurants version of fried rice; however,... More

We had the opportunity to dine here. The dinner was delicious, service was great, ambiance was nice. Make sure you order the soup dumplings. It was amazing when they burst with flavours in your mouth.

While not inexpensive, the quality of novelty of the dishes warrant splurging on occasion. Without wine, my wife and I spent $100. for the two of us with 20% tip. ChoLon is designed for sharing food, which is our routine. We ordered Lobster and mushroom crepes that you wrap with bib lettuce leaves. so tasty and intricately seasoned. We next... More

knowing we only had about 4 hours to spend in Denver, I did my research on where we should grab a late lunch before our drive across state. I kept running across Cholon on every site I checked out. I was determined we HAD to eat here! I MUST have some pork belly buns!!! So, August 25th, in horrible traffic,... More

I had dinner at Cholon a couple of days ago. We had forgotten that it was Denver Restaurant Week, but were weren't disappointed with the choices offered. My favorites were the soup dumplings, Kaya toast with coconut jam and egg custard, Boulder chicken with Palisades Peaches and of course the Vietnamese Doughnuts. I haven't been in for about a year...
