It may seem impossible to get great sushi in western Maine until you go to Cho Sun. This place is amazing and the atmosphere is just as great. It does get very crazy busy during the ski season where you can wait a bit for your order however the food is, in my opinion, very much worth it.

Not what I expected. The food was average. Tiny portions. I had to stop to get a sandwich on the way home. Had an appetizer, steak, and white rice. Won't go back.

My son recommended this to me. I would never thought of going to an oriental restaurant in the middle of the Maine woods and mountains, but I'm glad I listened to him. We ordered a wide selection off the menu, including sushi. Everything was excellent, including the service. Highly recommend!

We've visited several times and always enjoyed our meal. Between the 4 of us we've now sampled most of the menu and everyone has enjoyed their appetitizers through dessert. The atmostphere in the restuarant area is calm and inviting with soft woods and Asian art. Will definitely return.

This was our first meal at Cho Sun, and we stopped in after a long day of skiing at Sunday River. We had checked out the online menu and it looked interesting, so off we went. The food was satisfying; light, but tasty and intriguing, particularly the short ribs I ordered, the pickled zucchini condiment and those killer roasted potatoes.... More

Had a marvelous meal/time on Sunday. Corey, our waiter, was attentive, knowledgeable and engaging. The food was generous, creative, and delicious. A true exotic gem hidden away in a typical NE ski town. Highly recommend for a great dining experience!

I really enjoyed this place. We didn't have a reservation on a Saturday night and ended up dining in the lounge. I disagree with the other reviewer that listed the lounge as a dark ski bum type bar. It was a lounge and yes the music was a little loud, but the atmosphere and food were amazing so no need... More

I was looking forward to dining at this restaurant driving 5 miles from the Grand Summit Hotel. It was Saturday night 7pmish prime dinner time and there were only two tables occupied, for some reason they were looking strange at me. I was dressed nicely so I couldn't figure what it was. I waited at front for 10 minutes for... More

The BEST food & service experience! We enjoyed the Wed night dinner for 2, excellent food & service in a really great dining space. There's also a nice little pub in the back. This place is not to be missed! Be sure to also checkout their ramen noodle area at the Sunday River ski lodge cafeteria! Thanks Cho-Sun for a... More
