    They did much better on round two. Some very nice cocktails and snacks at the bar. I'll be keeping any eye on them.

    Coming from NYC, "fine dining" in other cities can often mean a waste of $$, but at ChoLon, fresh flavors, inventive recipes, & creative platings=a Denver standout. Shrimp spring roll was v memorable!

    The kaya toast is the perfect way to enjoy an appetizer. The sauce's low density belies its richness.

    Jared Sutton · August 17, 2014

    This is one of our favorite spots! We’re addicted to the Soup Dumplings, Bacon Fried Rice, Brussels Sprouts, & the Korean Fried Chicken Sandwich.

    The crew at this sleek spot turns out a monsoon of small bites -- all of which are meant to be eaten without utensils or chopsticks -- as well as large plates and wok dishes. Read more

    Good Happy Hour. Gotta try the Pork Belly Buns, Kaya Toast, and Soup Dumplings.

    Soup dumplings are great but wait 4 minutes before biting into it. Waiter told me that after I'd already gotten the burn of a lifetime.

    Brittney Haynes · March 30, 2014
  • Iris P.

    Must try the Malaysian noodles. The charred chicken is also to die for.

    Do NOT go on a Sunday close to closing (9pm?) They were out of everything that was recommended to us. It was a disaster... NY chef?! Not a NY experience. Bummer. We went out of our way to dine here.

    Christine Wayne · September 30, 2013
  • Andy B.

    Wow. Very disappointed. They ran out of menu items and bar service was inexcusably slow. My impression is that the place is WAY overhyped. For the price, I expect a *much* better experience.

  • Whitney D.

    Best food I have eaten in a long time. Crab roll sauce was amazing, would definitely get those over and over and over. Brussel sprouts were also amazing.

    Kaya toast is a must. Gonzalo the bartender is amazingly knowledgable.

    Go Monday-Wednesday for their awesome prix fixe menu: $60 for two people!

    Service is a bit slow at lunch, but the quality of the food more than makes up for it. Try the Pho.

    The tips on Foursquare and Yelp did not disappoint. The Brussels sprouts were TO DIE FOR and the dumplings were DIVINE! Btw get the donuts w coffee ice cream for dessert.
