We were in Asia a few months ago and the food in this restaurant was as good as some of the restaurants we loved when we were away. Each item has its own little surprise, so the food is different from most Asian influenced restaurants. Loved it!

ChoLon is, in fact, better than the average restaurant, but between its prices and its lack of culinary nuance, I'm downgrading it here. My party of four ordered seven small plates, each one of which could have been excellent with some simplification. Did the tender octopus, for example, really need Chinese sausage AND smashed potatoes AND pickled grapes? My companions... More

We visited on a Friday evening (w/a reservation). Everything we had was delicious. The dumplings are a must try; the pork belly buns were superb and they switched out 2 of the 4 for tofu because one of us stays away from meat. The dancing scallops were a piece of art and if you order it, you will know why... More

Went to the Bistro late Saturday night, no wait, but the restaurant was almost full. Server was very helpful and knowledgeable with suggestions for beer, wine and entrees. We had the lamb chops, which were very, very good and done to perfection, also had the pork with the buns, also a great dish. Nice atmosphere, just a little loud.

Great venue. Super industrial/modern-clean vibe. Kind of urban haute. Service is excellent. Food choices are explained before the order is finalized, then again as the dishes are delivered. Plates come in varying sizes; in essence, small, medium, and large. We started with two "Small Bites"; the soup dumplings (wow; so good; I could live on these) plus the pot stickers,... More

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
