ChoLon was a great snowy-night escape. Warm lighting and inviting modern/art deco inspired design sets the tone for a great experience. The menu is an interesting southeast Asian fusion combining the best of the regions varied cooking styles and spices. The soup dumplings are an absolute must, specifically the General Cho’s. My server was very well versed on the ins and outs of the menu and was genuinely excited to elaborate on the dishes. Only 4/5 stars due to the high prices, but an otherwise excellent meal and experience I’d be happy to repeat.
Food was very very small portioned. Picture is 2 orders of soup dumpling and 3 orders of beef skewers during happy hour. Sign outside said best dumplings in Denver… I really hope this isn’t true; I’ve had frozen dumplings that were mich better. Everything is overpriced even during happy hour. Left hungry and unsatisfied. The wokaway drink was good but also expensive for a little drink in a short glass with lots of ice. Meh, don’t get the great reviews. Place is nice inside looking inside but thats about it.
Enjoyed a wonderful meal out on the patio. The staff was very friendly and upbeat. Willing to answer questions and offer suggestions. Glaze salmon was excellent. The Vietnamese coffee top the meal off perfectly. Looking forward to my next visit.
Went here for Denver restaurant week. Online it was very confusing. It stated it would be $35 per person for 3 starters, an entree and a dessert. Once we got there, they stated it would be $70 for two people and everything was to share. Starters were a reasonably sized portion but the entree to share, was enough for just one person. The french soup dumpling was interesting but good. The pork belly bao buns were very good. The salmon crudo was pretty good but needed more crunch to it. The texture was just mush. The entree, I hate to say it, but was horrible. We ordered the Malaysian stir fry noodles which were extremely bland and had no flavor. My fiancee is from Malaysia, and these don't even come close to comparison to traditional noodles. It tasted like they didn't even add salt. Which, for an Asian restaurant, having too little salt is extremely rare. It tasted as though you were eating a vegetable stir fry with barely any noodles. The wagyu beef, well that could have been flank steak...... The donuts were a good way to end the meal. Overall, the restaurant needs to be more transparent during restaurant week of what is included and not tell you once you get there, everything is to share. A couple next to us requested to order an additional small plate at the standard price in which they were denied. MIND BLOWING, stated because it's restaurant week, they can't order another small plate and pay for it?! Service was pretty good. Overall, for the price and portions, I would have rather ate at a chain restaurant. PF Chang's has more flavor in their stir fry noodles......
Amazing food and amazing staff. We came to Cholon for my birthday in early November and our server Gregory truly made our night with how fun and attentive he was. We came at the end of happy lunch and he made sure to get our order before it ended and when he didn’t come back in time to see if we wanted more he honored it. We ordered a good amount of food to split between our party and it was all delicious, and we thought it was funny the staff seemed impressed at our ability to put it away. Definitely a memorable birthday dinner, so much I’m leaving the review shy of 20 days later still impressed with the amazing service we had! Be safe and make reservations as we did see a few parties being turned away.
