    Favorite food in Denver: The soup dumplings.

    Honestly one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten yet. Get the French onion dumplings, and order mostly small plates for deliciousness

    The soup dumplings are excellent, not the normal sort of soup dumplings, but tasty none the less.

    Really good, and I mean really, really good Asian food! The Pork Belly Buns are worth the trip from NJ. Other standouts: Potstickers and stir fried Malaysian noodles

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

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