They got the whole package down right...beautiful decor, friendly staff in unpretentious atmosphere, perfect music. Oh, and then there's the incredible food! We loved everything and tried a lot of different dishes, all beautifully presented. Lots of interesting flavors!

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

My wife and I recently ate here before going to the theater. The food was above average, but I'd say that the portion size is rather small. When we ordered three items and rice, we were advised to order more as this would probably not be sufficient. We had ordered potstickers, beef skewers, and the special of the day (a... More

Urban setting with a cosmopolitan flare, right in middle of downtown Denver. Reserve online and enjoy a tasty meal that won’t break the bank but isn’t cheap. The cuisine is modern Asian-fusion. More dishes impressed than disappointed, but if you know well prepared Asian, you will not be fully satisfied here. Desserts were tasty, which is impressive for an Asian... More

Everything about our meal was excellent! We started with the dumplings, duck spring rolls and pork belly buns. The pork belly buns were an explosion of flavor. For our main course we ordered the Diver scallops, chicken and cod along with the Brussels sprouts and the fried rice bacon carabonara. All of them were outstanding. After having sampled everything, I... More

Our group explored ChoLon recently and found a new gem in Denver's LoDo district. It's hard to find good modern Asian restaurants in the Denver metro area. ChoLon hits the mark with its unique and flavorful dishes, served in a clean, modern setting. Our group has been going out monthly for years-- this is one of the best places we've... More

ChoLon is a perfect example of what Asian fusion should be - the menu is creative, full of flavor and beautifully presented. The Wagyu Beef Skewers were my personal highlight, but the Kaya Toast and Bacon Fried Rice Carbonara were unique and fun to try. We definitely over-ordered (6 small bites, 2 share plates and 2 wok for 5 people)... More

If you are visiting Denver or want to make an ordinary night extraordinary, stop by Cholon for a meal. As a fit foodie, I allow myself a splurge every once in while. Often times, I leave disappointed. Not so at Cholon. The food is incredible and made my birthday splurge an absolutely orgasmic experience. I've never quite tasted such unique... More

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
