One of my new favorite restaurants in Denver. Get the French Onion Soup dumplings holy smokes
The food never disappoints. Must haves are French Onion Soup Dumplings and the Kaya Toast. The new General Cho dumplings were also pretty great. Awesome date night with my wife.
Thank you Nerf! We are excited to hear you loved our newest dumplings, we think they are great as well! We hope to see you and your wife back again soon!
I probably haven't been to ChoLon in 10 years, but I won't let 10 years go by again. It was awesome!
Thank you Marg! We are glad you made it back and enjoyed yourself! We look forward to serving you again soon!
Amazing food, spectacular service!
Thank you NicoleW! It is always nice to hear our guests enjoyed themselves! We look forward to serving you again!
Amazing flavors. Great service.
Thank you for the kind words BrandonF! We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your dining experience and hope to see you again soon!
Cholon is one of my favorite restaurants in Denver. They always deliver amazing food and a great experience.
Thank you ArielH! We are so glad you consider us a favorite! We look forward to serving you again soon!
the main course did not come at the same time but the food was amazing.
Thank you PatriciaC! We are glad you enjoyed the food! Since we are a family style restaurant with multiple kitchen stations, we do send food out as soon as it is ready so it can be enjoyed at the standards of our chefs. We hope to see you again soon!
Love their happy hour and apparently we weren't the only ones. Very busy which was wonderful to see. Our favorites were the pork belly bao buns and the French onion soup dumplings. The chicken soup dumplings were much too salty. The fries were delicious. Pappadum was very good. Pork potstickers were good but I didn't love the ginger mustard sauce. We tried the butternut squash crystal purses which the tables around us rated as their favorite. Good, but still think the pork belly and French onion soup dumplings were the winners. Also tried the Korean chicken slider which was a pretty generous portion. YUM!!!!
Thank you for your feedback Lori! We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your dining experience and the food! We hope to serve you again soon!
We were having a family dinner. We had several dietary issues but the menu at Cholon accommodated everyone . Our waiter was wonderful and attentive. He made great suggestions. Everything was delicious. We were not rushed and we had a delightful evening.
Thank you so much AndyL! We are glad you had such an enjoyable experience with us and felt accommodated with the restrictions of your party! We hope to see you again soon!
Had two small plates and two regular plate for two people. Left full and happy.
Thank you samh! We are glad you enjoyed your experience with us and left feeling great! We hope to have you dine with us again soon!
It was a great experience! Food and service were excellent! We ordered several dishes and shared. They were all terrific! Our food server was knowledgeable and helpful with our questions about the menu.
Thank you StephanieP! We are pleased to hear your experience was delightful and hope to serve you again soon!
We are glad you were able to celebrate with us! We hope to see you again soon!
First time visiting after always telling people how much I wanted to go and referring it as a great spot to friends I finally had time to stop in! Visited before a show at red rocks to celebrate my girlfriends birthday and the service was great but the spotlight belongs to the heart of the house- the kitchen crew. Much love, much respect. Keep slaying every day. Didn’t get the chance to try the crab purses so I’ll be stopping in yumcha to give them a try. Thanks guys!
Thank you ChelseaR! We are glad you enjoyed your dining experience with us! We look forward to serving you again soon!
The food and service were impeccable. Ambiance was perfect. Complimentary staff were warm and accommodating. If you are cold natured ask to be seated away from the windows.
Thank you for JamesS! We appreciate your kinds words and hope to serve you again soon!
Loved our experience. Food was soooo good.
We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your dining experience with us! We hope you join us again soon!
The food at Cholon is memorable. Everytime I go there and introduce someone - we must have the onion soup dumplings and the brussle sprouts. I also love the Tamarind Fizz. It is a delicious and fun drink - even without alcohol.
Thank you for being a loyal guest and introducing new people to our restaurant! We too love the soup dumplings and brussel sprouts! We hope to see you again soon!
Everything was excellent except it's a bit noisy and it was hard to carry on a conversation.
Thank you MariaP! We are glad to hear you thought the overall experience was excellent! We do have quite the energetic environment but appreciate the feedback!
Service was only fine. None of the food was amazing and the crepes were soggy and crumbly. Very loud, harsh lighting near the kitchen. Asked to change tables immediately after being seated and were moved one table over. Nothing was horrible but nothing was particularly good either. Scaled for the price, the whole experience was quite poor.
Thank you for your feedback Brett. We are upset to hear your dining experience was less than our standards. We would love the opportunity to host you again and provide you with exceptional food and service in the future.
I was a little upset when the receptionist offered us a place at the bar because it seemed to me that she was saving a table for somebody else.
The restaurant was a little noisy, since there’s was a big table nearby celebrating a birthday.
The French onions soup was delicious as always.
I ordered the shrimp crepe and my boyfriend ordered the miso glazed salmon. It was strange when his salmon arrived and just when he finished the salmon my plate arrived. It was a huge problem, since we have tickets for the Opera and I didn’t have time for desert.
Thank you for your feedback AnaCVentilari! We are sorry your experience was not up to the standards we hold. Since we are a family style restaurant, all dishes are served as soon as they are completed and we have several different stations preparing certain food. We hope to have you visit our restaurant again and can better detail the menu items and provide you with exceptional service!
Waitress was rude, and unprofessional. Food was burnt, and underseasoned. Totally overrated place. I would not recommend it to anyone
Thank you for your feedback. We are very disappointed to hear of your dining experience being less than our standards. This is not how we intend our service and we would like to learn more so that we can train our staff better. If you know the name the reservation was under we can learn more of the details and provide better training moving forward.
Great experience- something different than just a dinner. Family style with recommendations from the staff!
Thank you so much JenH! We are pleased you enjoyed yourself and hope to see you back soon!
Dumplings!! Soooo delicious! Next time I may just get 3 orders for 9 perfect bites of food.
Alex was great as our server. Very knowledgeable.
Please start going out for lunch again. Sad to see this amazing restaurant less than half full.
Thank you MJohn! We are glad to hear you enjoyed your time with us and Alex as your server! We hope to see you again soon!
Came to this place Bc of the rave reviews on the soup dumplings, which were really amazing. The fear of the Menu was mediocre. However the thing that turned us off most was the horrible service. Was seated in an near empty restaurant and watched at Lear a dozen staff standing around not one came to serve us. Saw others seated after and had food before us. Finally someone came over after 30 minutes and after we called for their attention. Would not return.
Loved this shareable experience! Delicious food!
Thank you KD13! We are glad to hear you enjoyed your experience and we look forward to hosting you again!
We had reservations for a date night- they sat us in the bar. We asked to sit in the dining room…tables almost touching you’re so close to other people. So incredibly loud. We were there for just under 2 hours and hadn’t received our small bites yet. 2 drinks and we ended up cancelling our order because the service and atmosphere were so terrible
Food was amazing. They were absolutely jammed on a Saturday night, so the slow service and the noise level were sort of understandable. Would recommend going on a slower night for a more relaxed experience.
Thank you ChristinaB! We appreciate your feedback about the busy night but are glad to hear you enjoyed your experience at the same time! We hope to see you again very soon!
Excellent for date night. Attentive and friendly service, great wine by the glass, Wagyu bites were astonishing. Original. Great main course. Dessert was ok.
Thank you gourmandabc! We appreciate the feedback and are glad to hear you enjoyed your experience! We look forward to serving you again in the future!
Very good experience. Staff was great and helpful. Food was very excellent, but portion sizes could be bigger!
Thank you for your feedback JohnF! We are glad you enjoyed yourselves. We appreciate the portion size suggestion as this always helps us to better the experience of our guests moving forward. We hope to see you again soon!
Everything we ordered was delicious. We had the Kiyu toast, French Onion Dumplings, Stir fry noodles & the Wagyu steak. Phenomenal!! Keep in mind all plates are “family style” meaning they’re meant to share. You’ll probably need reservations on most nights due to its popularity.
Thank you so much for your kind words! We are glad to hear you had such a great dining experience! We hope to serve you again soon!
Delicious, unique dishes. Loved everything we tried. Great service. Can't wait to go back!
Thank you AmyV! We are pleased to hear you loved your visit with us! We hope to see you again very soon!
We found ChoLon via a top 10 list by Eater and felt lucky to get a last minute reservation. Our server Joe was fantastic! I made sure to let his manager know. We started with a round of drinks and a bottle of sake Joe helped us select for the table. Joe helped guide us to the right amount of shareable dishes as to not go overboard. The General Cho’s soup dumplings are an experience and worth it. The Waugh beef skewers are a great way to get a bite without overspending. The salmon crudo was by far our favorite plate. Skip the Malaysian noodles and spare ribs in favor of more crudo and Brussel sprouts. We definitely recommend this spot for a fun night out.
Thank you Cephaler! We appreciate your kind words and are pleased to hear you had such a wonderful dining experience with us! Joe is great and we will make sure he hears your praise! We hope to host you again soon!
Great dining experience! Definitely get a reservation in advance!
Thank you Lulu! We are glad you had a great experience with us and we hope to see you again soon!
ChoLon has been one of my favorite restaurants in Denver for the past 5+ years. You can't go wrong with their soup dumplings!!!
Thank you for being such a loyal guest VailH! We too love the soup dumplings! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
The food was out of this world delicious and the service was amazing.
Thank you NicholasD! We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your experience with us! We hope to serve you again soon!
Very good service and great menu, a definite stop in downtown Denver
Thank you RussellW! We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit! We hope to see you again soon!
Amazing service. Creative food presentation. Delicious meal. Thank you!
Thank you PatriciaW! We are glad that you enjoyed your time with us! We look forward to serving you again!
It was all very delicious. The dumplings were perfect and tasty!
Thank you so much IsiM! We too love the dumplings! We are glad you enjoyed yourself and we look forward to serving you again in the future!
I am very picky and seldom write glowing reviews. However, ChoLon was a gem. It is expensive, but the service and the food are worth it. Save your pennies and go. You will not regret it.
Thank marcallen! We appreciate you taking the time to write kind words about our restaurant and your experience here! We hope to see you again soon!
Can't find any more flavor than at Cholon - always a treat & they play great music too!
Thank you so much! We are glad you enjoyed yourself and hope to serve you again soon!
I love Chef Lon's inventive and flavorful cuisine. I think that Guy Fieri would too!
It has been several years since we visited. The Gen Tso soup dumplings are amazing.
The wagyu beef on skewers was epic.
I tried the chargrilled half chicken which was great. My wife had Stir-Fried Malaysian noodles with shrimp, egg, and bean sprouts. Our caramelized milk chocolate pudding dessert with passion fruit, chocolate house cake, and toasted sesame was to die four.
My only complaint is the romantic lighting. I had a lot of difficulties reading the menus. Please consider turning up the dimmers!
Thank you Christopher for your kinds words! We are pleased to hear you had such a great experience while dining with us! We always appreciate such fantastic feedback from our guests and we hope to welcome you back again soon!
