Flavor explosion! Everything was sooo good! Dumplings, Korean hot slides were to die for, potstickers, Brussels, etc. Nice modern atmosphere don't let the over Asian-y smell bother you, great tapas style food that comes out quickly.

If you enjoy trying new food then make time for Cholon. The chef is uber-creative with asian inspired dishes and amazing desserts. We paired our meal with a super affordable an yummy bottle of French Cinsault at $45 - an unexpected and pleasant surprise. Service and food presentation were both outstanding.

I haven't been to ChoLon is quite a while - what was I thinking? It was so nice to be back - outstanding food and service. Did I say outstanding food? We had a large group so we had lots of share plates - which were just outstanding. Flavorful and interesting. Can't wait to go back!!!

We have gone to ChoLon everytime we are in Denver. This was probably the 4th time and everything was fantastic. There was 4 of us and we got small plates to share. Don't miss the soup dumplings. Nice atmosphere and good service too

It's really crowded and the tables are very small. The food is over salted and and some are hot and some are warm. It's like they got popular and the quality has gone out the window. The food is really spicy and they have a lot of oil in it. I think the local magazine gave it good reviews and... More

Visited for a brithday, we had cocktails in the bar first, they were really nice not pre made, the cocktail selection are changed everyday.

Been here half a dozen times and this was perfect! Had the beef, scallops, duck, watermelon salad and soup dumplings! Also drinks and sorbet and donuts! Yeah it wasn't cheap but every dish was perfect and it was harder to choose a favorite. Great service too. Highly recommended.

My friend, Andy, and I try to meet for dinner every other month. The last few times we dined out we opted for Italian. Bar Dough, Coperta, etc...I love Italian for the wine choices. Most Italian restaurants have a lovely selection of varietals and I am always up for a glass of wine. This time, we were determined to do... More

What a treat to find this place! We loved the pork short ribs, Korean fried chicken and fries with Asian mayo. They had a kids menu and my daughter enjoyed the pork with rice bowl.
