Fantastic nouveau Chinese in Telluride, simply outstanding! Large and airy dining room with large bar and seating downstairs. Superb. Fried rice can be so bland, but the Lotus Petal's fried rice was the best I've ever had, including in San Francisco's Chinatown!! Try it, you'll LOVE it!!!

A must-dine on the main street in Telluride. This restaurant not only has wonderful sushi, fabulous thai curries, and all sorts of other Asian and Asian fusion cuisine, it also has the atmosphere. An atmosphere created by a combination of lay-out, decor, and friendly wait-staff and sushi chefs.

I wasn't expecting such great Asian food in Telluride. We had some of the most delicious pad thai and thai curry -- and the sushi rolls were beautiful. Nicely located on main street.

Begin your meal with the best Mojito around! The papaya salad is so crunchy and healthy and the pad Thai was the best we've ever had. The portions are very generous, lovely interior and very nice and helpful staff. Enjoy!

From the Chicago area - so have a chance for lots of sushi places - Hongas was wonderful. Sat near the sushi bar - fun to watch the skilled chefs - and then indulge in their creations. Really good stuff, great drinks, wine and atmosphere also.

The sushi was great, but compared to others was a bit expensive, although the restaurant was very full and lively.

So good - we ate here 3 times in a 7 night ski trip to Telluride... Last time we ate at Hongas was in 2004 when we were last in Telluride, They've moved to newer bigger premises now. In some way's that's a shame, as I really liked the small old place. However, not really surprising that success has forced... More

You're on vacation in Telluride when you get to Honga. But only after a few drinks. Then you're relaxed, enjoying really good sushi. This last time I really noticed how the service was friendly. We had a great time. The waitress commented on something we ordered--that it would cost something extra, and I said "who cares we're on vacation", to... More

From the welcoming ambience, interesting cocktails and innovative menu, Honga's rocks! Located in "town"' this mixed- Asian menu resonates with everyone. Excellent appetizers, sashimi and creative rolls provide the basis for the menu. A little expensive, though.
