Terrific small plate Asian meal

My wife LOVED this place, but then she is crazy about Tapas type eating. Small plates, delicious food. We had the Peking duck rolls, watercress salad, lobster ravioli, the beef and asparagus and the wok cooked noodles with seafood and bean sprouts. The latter was the best of them. Plenty of food... read more

Went with a group of 8 and ordered 10-15 dishes family style. Food was amazing! Super tasty with beautiful presentation. Great place to enjoy a slower-paced meal (since it was family style). Pork buns and soup dumplings are a must! Ambiance was casual to business casual. Music and restaurant were a little loud but overall a fun and classy place.... More

What an awesome experience! My friend and I tried several menu items and the standouts were the soup dumplings, bacon carbonara, and pork belly buns. Also had the brussels sprouts, diver scallops, malaysian noodles, potstickers, and lemongrass cheesecake and Vietnamese coffee plus a few cocktails. All of it was great food and the service was amazing while we asked for... More

We went to Cholon Bistro for the first time on a Friday date night for us. We were seated promptly; but unfortunately ended up being seated near a regular customer and another set of friends of our server. We received good suggestions from the serve early in the evening, but then fell by the wayside for follow-up after that. The... More

Asian food with a twist. Beautifully presented. Tasty and bold. We were in Denver for a wedding. When we came here our server asked if we've been there before. We said no. He explained the "ordering" process. About appetizers ,small plates and shared plates. There were 4 of us. We ordered for appetizers, the crispy peking duck roll with plum... More

Restaurant is very nice however do not go unless you are dressed to the nines. We walked in looking decent and the host told us if we didn't have reservations then they were booked. The place was almost empty... They did seat us after awhile. Waitress was friendly and the place was clean. The pork belly buns were good but... More

Nice modern Bistro in downtown Denver. Right off of 16th and Blake,, we took the free mall shuttle from the hotel.We made reservations on Trip Adviser which worked out well. The entrees are designed to be shared family style. The Soup Dumplings are fantastic and unique. The menu is small but there is a wide variety to chose from. The... More
