    The food was excellent, the ambience pleasant but very noisy. The server forgot to bring my partner’s entree and was not seen for 10-15 minutes. They comped her meal, but it partially ruined our experience.

    Cholon is a top notch experience. Try the salmon temaki roll, Bao buns or any of the dumplings and you are in culinary heaven. Wok dishes are exemplary.

    Food was terrific and we sat in the bar during happy hour. Much quieter. Our waiter , Jack, was outstanding for us and very kind to an unhoused man who came in for a bit of respite and a coke. Definitely will return.

    We sampled several items on the menu, sharing each item as it was presented. Every menu item we chose was outstanding. Our server was outgoing and very knowledgeable about each dish - assisting in our decision on which items to choose. I look forward to visiting Denver again so that I can go back to this restaurant!

    The food is always incredible at ChoLon - but for the price I’m paying they should put a little into the upkeep of their restaurant. The chairs were tattered and falling apart!

    Boy, not the same restaurant it used to be…. Almost felt like this was a franchised version of the original that lost its edge. Still decent all around, just not the same cholon I’d come to know and love.
