An excellent twist on classic Asian fare. All the dishes we tried were superb. Can't wait to go back.

Good food, attentive staff, medium price range. Would recommend to couples or groups of 4 or 6 people who like to share, as that is for how most of the dishes are prepared. Enjoyed a nice bottle of wine at a reasonable price, and the experience took a little over 1 hour. We did let our waiter know we were... More

Interesting, good food, uncomfortable seating. Been twice and will go again. Sometimes have to park a ways away.

Great tapas style meal with superb service by Chad. We shared everything, of course, starting with gingery potstickers, just right mix of sweet and hot (mustard) as well as Gruyere steamed dumplings (exceptional twist.) On to a Burmese Salad, with interesting components. The Dancing Scallops were a perfect shared plate, animated and tasty. Finished with Pineapple Cake, of which the... More

Good structure to the menu, with appetizers, small place and larger plates. All good to share and hard to find something that doesn't sound good. We tried as many as we could manage, including desserts and I could not fault a single dish. We were lucky to eat with someone that had been there before, so they knew what was... More

We had our company Christmas party here for about 30 people, the food was really outstanding. While all the dishes we had were outstanding my favorite was the Stir-fried Malaysian Noodles, Seafood, Egg, Bean Sprouts. The only bummer was that it was the last dish and I was so darn full I could barely eat much of it. The wait... More

This is located in LoDo (lower downtown of Denver). Nice corner location, spacious seating, competent staff that are very knowledgeable, competent and efficient. I would suggest the Dancing Scallops (no further description - a must taste).

We were in Asia a few months ago and the food in this restaurant was as good as some of the restaurants we loved when we were away. Each item has its own little surprise, so the food is different from most Asian influenced restaurants. Loved it!

ChoLon is, in fact, better than the average restaurant, but between its prices and its lack of culinary nuance, I'm downgrading it here. My party of four ordered seven small plates, each one of which could have been excellent with some simplification. Did the tender octopus, for example, really need Chinese sausage AND smashed potatoes AND pickled grapes? My companions... More
