“Might be Beijing's biggest pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

These pizza's are huge and decently priced. The taste is one of the best in Beijing as far as pizza is concerned. The Sanlitun location has a cool vibe with metal furniture and colourful graffiti on the walls. I've been back many times and will likely be back many more.

English can be a struggle, but the staff try if you really can't speak Chinese.

“Impossible To Find But Worth the Trouble”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

Came back again and had an outstanding meal. Interesting atmosphere, great pizza, and decent price. Lack of English can be an issue so be very clear with your order ... we received an extra pizza not ordered ... but did not have to pay. Everyone in group loved it. Smoking is allowed so if that's an issue, just ask as there are areas that are not an issue. Free wifi. Great place - will come back for sure as long as I remember how to find it!

“Best NY(ish) Pizza I have had in BJ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

I love Kro's Nest! It's the closest thing to real NY pizza that I have had in Beijing. It's also a really interesting place in general. The bathroom walls are filled with funny pictures and pieces of advice. You'll have to check it out yourself. The homemade BBQ sauce is good and they have the best ranch I've found in Beijing. Make sure to order a salad because they are fairly cheap and pretty tasty. My favorite pizza is the pepperoni explosion pizza. Make sure to order your pizza with a side of ranch. They also have SOUTHERN SWEET TEA!

“Excellent Pizza in Beijing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Our group of 12 was desperately looking for some Western food after a few days in Beijing. We found this terrific place that easily accommodated us. It is a large restaurant with a trendy vibe. Best of all was the excellent flat bread pizza that was served hot and in a timely manner. We chose 4 different types in large sizes that they sliced into 12 pieces for easy sharing. The menu also offered salads and pasta dishes. We were happy to have pizza and beer. This place is near the US Embassy and across from the Renaissance Beijing. We were very happy to dine here, and the prices were very reasonable.

“Great Pizza and cool atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

A long beer selection and huge delicious pizzas. I really can not explain how good the pizza is. Don't be scared by the secret entrance (need to knock on the door), it is actually quite a happening place inside. I highly recommend it.
