The menu is unusual with three sizes of dishes that are all interesting and every one was fantastic. The soup dumplings were filled with French onion soup, which was unique and a taste sensation. The pork belly buns were mouthwatering and the crunchy Thai spring...More

My favorite restaurant when I'm in Denver. Best soup dumplings I've had anywhere in the USA. The Pork Belly Buns are worth the plane ticket from the east coast alone. Everything's great, but this is my dream order at Cholon - Cocktail: The Western Slope...More

Hands down the best birthday birthday ever because the food was so amazing. Starting with that delicious salsa/chutney? Whatever it was, it blew my socks off. We ordered the onion soup dumplings that burst sunshine into your mouth for appetizers. We also ordered Octopus which...More

This restaurant was worth the flight. Matt, our waiter, was awesome. Soup dumplings (with French onion filling) were over the top amazing. They gave brussel sprouts a whole new meaning. You'll never eat potstickers the same way again. The Wagyu steak was tremendous but even...More

Still in the middle of dinner and absolutely loving it. The dumplings are odd but delicious. The pork build your own buns are the hit. Amazing service.

We were in Denver Thursday evening (7/20) and decided to try Cholon which was just a short walk from our hotel. Cholon was buzzing when we arrived for our 8:15 reservation. The menu was tantalizing in its variety and creativity and it did not disappoint!...More

We had the soup dumpling, which were good. Grilled octopus, which my husband thought was one of the best octopus dishes we have even tasted. Tandoori lamb chops were great, which was a nice dish to share. Peaches and cream dessert, was a nice light...More

We ate there in the evening and I would say that most people were dressed business casual. That was in early May. I would think that during the summer you would see people with shorts and a collared shirt?
