I wish I had another night in Denver - because I would go here again for lunch or dinner. I stopped in on a whim around 4PM for happy hour - sat at the bar. The bartender and wait staff were attentive and helpful. I got the spring rolls for a starter (which were fantastic) and decided to wait until... More

The food at Cholon was exceptional. It's Asian Fusion at it's best: flavors compliment rather than overwhelm each other. While I prefer my dumplings with traditional dim sum stuffings, I was pleasantly surprised by the onion soup dumplings. They didn't overpower the palate as sometimes onion soup will do. I've never tasted better prepared fish than here at Cholon. The... More

I come here as often as I can when I'm in downtown as the Pork Belly Buns and the French Onion Soup Dumplings are two of my favorite food items- ever. Other standouts- Kaya Toast, Brussel Sprouts (although can be spicy), and the Carbonara fried rice. Just a huge fan of this place- I will deviate sometimes from the classics... More

They have some unique dishes that one my try for their first visit. Brussels Sprouts with Grilled Pork; Soup Dumplings, Kaya Toast with Egg Cloud and Rib Eye Skewers! We will definitely be... More

Very much enjoyed my experience dining at Cholon. Our server was knowledgeable about the menu and friendly! The food was fresh and perfectly prepared. Loved everything we ordered! Highly recommend the Soup Dumplings! Menu was a little pricey but about average for restaurants in that area. Cant wait to go back!

I have walked past the windows of ChoLon Modern Asian Bistro many times on 16th Street and watched the chefs working with ingredients preparing food for diners later in the day / evening, but had never stopped in and eaten. A group of about 30 of us from my condo building wound up going during Denver Restaurant Week and had... More

I visit Denver often. First time to eat here. So good, I ate lunch and dinner here. Get a seat at the bar open to the kitchen. Fun time watching them prepare the amazingly flavorful food.

The food was delicious...the service was great also. My son is a vegetarian and the menu was loaded with things for him to order. The waiter also said the chief could add anything he would like. I loved the mushroom fried spring rolls they were so good ...served with ginger dip.....I can't wait to go back and get some more!... More

We had a very large party that we took to ChoLon. The staff had pre done a menu for our evening, that was much easier as a diner to not worry about what to get. We had reservations for 8PM, for 16, and waited approximately 40 min. for our table to be ready. Once we were seated, the staff took... More
