Great atmosphere, great value, but just ok on taste

New store in new mall. Glad to find it here I'd heard about the other locations but never been I like the decor and atmosphere it provides, clientele seemed diverse Ordered a Medium "Pepperoni Explosion" compared to other pizza offerings in China it was quite big at 23 inches.

Nice environment to meet your friends after work, enjoy some beers and have a pizza. Interesting menu with a not-so-usual choices that you may find weird, but must try! A lot of similarities occur between Kro's Nest and Tube Station; my advice is: avoid the second one... it's a cheap chinese copy of the same concept.

This pizza chain has a least 3 locations in Beijing (Sanlitun, Xiayun Lu and outside of Joy City near Subway line 6 stop Qinnian Lu and yes it is a shopping mall, only a mall with a slightly uncommon name), all with similar menue but different atmosphere. The one in Xioyun Lu is styled like a dark cave, the Joy... More

I don't really go here much for pizza, as there are better options around in my opinion. However, this place is an unsung hero for big, inexpensive salads. I eat here for lunch at least once every two weeks because their salads are massive and only run you about 40 RMB (US $7) for a whole bunch of veggies with... More

You would not expect such a nice place hidden behind the unassuming barn door entrance in a typical PEK neighborhood (5 min walk from Marriott N. E.). The super-thin pizzas were our favorites. But be sure to specify if that is what you want. Very helpful staff that seems well trained and motivated to serve.

When you get in front the front is a giant black crow painting over 2 bug industrial doors. It almost looks like a closed building. Look to the right side of the foor and... More

This place is great and has an extensive menu that can please even the fussiest of diners! I opt for the magic mushroom salad or the veg-head pizza roll. Both are moderately prized and super tasty.

We wanted a good salad and this was the place. Shared a Cobb-like salad and a medium pizza, which was huge, between three of us. Salad was large and fresh. Pizza had a thin crust and generous toppings. We really enjoyed our meal. Pizza, salad, cheese fries, and 4 beers cost about $40 USD. And a western toilet to boot!!!

If you need a break from the local cuisine, this is definitely the place to go. The pizzas are huge and excellent. The service is kind and professional.

If you're looking for some authentic pizza that is not Pizza Hut, Kro's Nest is your spot! As an American studying abroad in Beijing for two semesters, I regularly found myself looking for a taste of home. Kro's Nest has very good large NY-style pizzas. A fun place to bring a big group. I'm not sure if they still have... More
