To Die for Soup Dumplings!!!!

Seriously, I could just eat several orders of this for my meal. This is the place where we take friends visiting Denver. Wonderful atmosphere, delicious menu, and creative cocktails.

Perfectly executed dishes with picture perfect presentation! The addition of Colorado waygu beef to their dishes makes an awesome difference! Don't miss the watercress salad with Chinese vinegar and puffed wheat berries either. What a wonderful place!

Visited Cholon with friends last Friday evening and was certainly wowed by the food. The soup dumplings are not to be missed. We shared two orders so everyone got two bites, and they are not to be missed. Our main dishes were the Wagyu Beef and Diver Scallops Plate. Both were quite good. Our small sides were the Brussels Spouts,... More

Next trip to Denver, this is the first reservation I'm making. Asian cuisine is not usually my top choice when selecting a restaurant but this place was amazing. Small apps, small plates and entrees......all to be shared. I think we ordered everything on the menu and each dish was incredibly unique and delicious. All four of us raved about all... More

ChoLon never disappoints. We dined with another couple and shared three starters, two share plates dishes, and four sides. The soup dumplings and pot stickers were particularly excellent. The scallops were perfectly seared and tender. We highly recommend the Brussels Sprouts. They are wonderfully charred, and served with ground pork. The carbonara rice was very inventive. For dessert, we enjoyed... More

Wonderfully unique combination of flavors. The soup dumplings are a terrific surprise and the pork belly buns are amazing. Four of us ordered 3 small plates and two large plates and the food was plentiful. The restaurant is on the noisy side but the decor is lovely and service was very attentive. It's a little pricey but if you're looking... More

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 for 3 of us. Good service, not a... 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
