Delicious dinner...great service

I have been hearing about Cholon from my family for months and months. While on vacation, I finally got to experience it for myself...and I was thrilled with the experience. We ordered a lot, so I could get the chance to taste a variety. For 3 of us, we got 4 small bites (kaya toast, pork belly... read more

I have eaten at several dozen Denver restaurants and this is my favorite. I love the place, the service, the menu, and the flavors. For me, it's a totally wonderful experience. The French soup dumplings are mandatory. You are making a mistake if you skip these. In fact, my wife insists on her own order. I've had fish, ribs, chicken,... More

The soup dumplings and do it yourself pork buns were out of this world. Our waiter was so friendly and helped us when we were having trouble deciding...we wanted almost everything on the menu! The presentation was fun and modern and the atmosphere of the restaurant was great. Highly recommend!

I meet my cousins at ChoLon. They had recommended the place while I was in Denver on business. It turned out to be a great meal and a short walk from my hotel. The food was delicious. We shared many small plates between the three of us and everything just got better and better as the plates came out. Service... More

The food is good, don't get us wrong. And while we have no problems with a big ticket meal if the food is that good, but in this case its just not. We will start by saying the soup dumplings are awesome and the pork dumplings are great, but everything else was just good. Not awesome, not bad, just good.... More

We absolutely loved this restaurant. It was fun to order a variety of items from the menu and share them with the table. The Pork Buns were our favorites and the spiced doughnuts with coffee ice cream was amazing!

I went here with a friend of mine a few weeks ago. The place has a very nice ambiance and a solid drink menu, but the food was the real stand out. The various dumplings we got were perfectly cooked, tender without being soggy or watery. The flavors of the meat and kimchi/sides were a bit rich for my taste,... More

Enjoyable dinner all around. We sat in the indoor bar area as it was happy hour. We had gone intending to just do dinner, but the host told us that given it was happy hour, we would probably want to sit in that area. He was right. We tried the soup dumplings, pork buns, kaya toast, and brussel sprouts for... More
