Tube Station Pizza Review: Tianjin’s Unexpected Slice of NY Flavor

Tube Station Pizza, a veritable legend in Beijing including old drama with Kro’s Nest Pizza (which ironically solidified my decision to not have a local business partner), has wooed my pizza-loving heart and captivated both my tastebuds and my imagination.

I couldn’t wait to travel to Beijing and venture into one of their famous pizza joints, while hoping to devour a delicious, cheesy slice and experience their unique atmosphere. Little did I know, they have a location here in Tianjin!

As I entered the establishment, I felt like I had been transported to a pizza underground kingdom of sorts, complete with its own countrymen – dedicated pizza enthusiasts from near and far.

I couldn’t help but chuckle at the warm, welcoming ambiance that screamed ‘pizza is king’ and the delightful aroma that wafted throughout the restaurant, hinting at the mouthwatering experience I was about to indulge in. Here’s my honest Tube Station Pizza review.

But what truly set Tube Station Pizza apart for me was their impeccable service, offering a perfect balance of attentiveness and casual friendliness that only heightened the entire experience. Add to that the value for money and the wide range of non-pizza options available, this gem of a pizza joint undoubtedly left me wanting more.

Key Takeaways of my Tube Station Pizza Review

  • Tube Station Pizza offers a memorable experience with their scrumptious pies and unique atmosphere.
  • The service is top-notch, ensuring customers feel welcomed and valued.
  • In addition to their famous pizzas, the menu caters to a variety of tastes while keeping prices reasonable.

The Tube Station Pizza Experience

Standout Dishes

Let me tell you, I’ve seen a lot of pizzas, but nothing beats the feeling of spotting an almost perfect circle. I discovered the secret to such a symmetrical creation in this article about how to get your pizza more round.

But aside from shapes, you should’ve seen my face when I first encountered the New York Style Pizza. It was love at first sight! If you’re curious on what makes it so special, keep on reading.

Variety and Taste

My pizza journey has led me to try some incredible pizzerias, like the one I discovered in the same mall in Tianjin. The variety and taste of the pizzas there are no joke. It’s like a taste explosion in my mouth! As I chew, I take a moment to savor each ingredient, especially the cheese.

I can’t help but wonder about the quality of ingredients these places use, and let me tell you, quality is important when it comes to pizza.

Attitude Towards Ingredients

Now, about these ingredients I love so much – companies should treat them with respect. After all, food was never meant to be just sustenance, but an experience, a memory, a reason to gather with friends and shoot the breeze. So it’s important to focus on quality, from the cheese to the sauce, to the dough.

A pizza is only as good as its foundation, and I have the utmost appreciation for those pizza snobs who understand this and provide not just a good meal, but a pizza experience to remember.

As I walked in, the atmosphere made me feel like I was about to embark on a thrilling culinary journey. The energy was electric, and getting a slice of pizza felt like my mission for the day. The decor featured charming tube station-inspired elements, which added a playful touch to the experience.

Cleanliness, you ask? Fear not, my friends. Tube Station Pizza has got you covered. Everything seemed well-maintained and clean, allowing me to fully immerse myself in the exciting environment. No need to clutch your purse or briefcase in fear of grubby subway grime – it’s all in good fun here!

While dining, I noticed that other customers were enjoying the atmosphere too. You could see people laughing, chatting, and savoring their delicious slices like they just found a treasure in the subway tunnels. What a ride, I tell you!

Value for Money

Let me tell you, I’ve had my fair share of pizza slices in tube stations, but nothing quite beats the balance of taste and value as this particular joint. As I munched on my cheesy delight, I couldn’t help but chuckle at the thought of how much dough (pun intended) I was saving.

Now, I’m not usually one to brag, but it felt as if I had stumbled upon a hidden treasure when I realized they not only accepted credit cards but embraced them! That’s right, folks, no fumbling around for cash or rolling pennies to pay for this scrumptious meal. Just a quick swipe (or tap if you’re fancy) and you’re golden.

Between bites, I got to thinking about the average pizza – you know, the ones that leave you feeling a mix of regret and satisfaction. But this tube station delight truly separates itself from the pack. Did I mention the generous toppings? Each piece felt like a genuine culinary gift.

So, as I savored every last morsel of my underground pizza masterpiece (being careful not to miss even a single drop of tomato sauce), I couldn’t help but revel in the knowledge that I was getting the most bang for my buck in this labyrinth-like transit hub.

Remember, whenever you find yourself in need of a savory, affordable pizza fix while on-the-go, don’t hesitate to venture underground. Because sometimes laughter, happiness, and value can be found even in the depths of the tube station.

Friends and Family Outings

I have to admit, I’m a big fan of pizza, and whenever my friends and family plan an outing, pizza is always a top priority. Tube Station Pizza is a great option for both groups and families because of its fantastic family-friendly atmosphere.

Before discussing my most recent visit, let’s take a moment to appreciate their ingenious concept: tube-shaped pizza slices! Imagine everyone holding a slice, acting like they’re operating a train. It’s hard not to feel like a kid again, and the excitement is contagious!

So there I was, surrounded by my friends and family, ready to dig into some delicious pizza. The wait staff went above and beyond to be friendly and accommodating, making it easier for us to be seated and have our varying dietary preferences taken care of. The menu had something for everyone – from the classic Margherita to the innovative Avocado-Basil-Ricotta (which I highly recommend!).

But Tube Station Pizza truly shines when it comes to accommodating large groups. Their giant, 32-inch pizza is designed to feed at least ten people. For us, ordering this colossal pie became the highlight of the evening, providing endless entertainment (and photo opportunities) as we attempted to tackle the gargantuan slices.

The laughter and camaraderie between friends and family while enjoying some scrumptious pizza truly made it a night to remember. I can’t wait to bring more people to Tube Station Pizza for future gatherings, creating even more memories in this fun, family-friendly environment.

The Business Behind

Ah, tube station pizza – that steamy, cheesy delight that heralds from the underground world of urban transit. You might be curious about the business that churns out such doughy goodness, so let me take you on a tour of their pie-making empire.

First off, I must commend this business for their industry-leading trust & safety standards. It’s not every day that we get to enjoy a scrumptious meal delivered from a subterranean lair, but they make it possible. They adhere to strict hygiene and sanitation protocols, making sure that each pizza is prepared with love and care (and get this, without the grime of the underground railway). Kudos to them!

Now, you might be wondering about their transparency report. Well, their commitment to transparency is no laughing matter, but you can’t help but chuckle at the tongue-in-cheek approach they’ve taken. In fact, they proudly display a “Pizza Delivered on Time” graph, showcasing how they’ve mastered the art of blending humor with information. The report also covers their sourcing of fresh ingredients, ensuring that Mother Nature isn’t left behind in the pizza-making process.

While I’ve been a loyal patron of tube station pizza for quite some time now, it continues to amaze me how this awesome business thrives in such an unconventional setting. If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that delicious pizza knows no bounds – and certainly isn’t limited to the realm of fancy brick ovens and trendy eateries.

So, next time you’re wandering through a bustling tube station, craving a slice of cheesy, saucy heaven, remember the business behind it all and take a moment to appreciate their unique spin on the pizza industry. After all, who doesn’t love a slice with a side of laughter?


Let me tell you, my friends, sometimes pizza alone just doesn’t cut it. It needs some dazzling sidekicks to elevate the experience. So, when I’m craving something extra to go with my Tube Station pizza, I like to explore their delicious menu offerings.

Starting with salads, because, you know, pizza and salad go together like, well, pizza and beer. Speaking of which, if you don’t know what beer to pair with pizza, check out these beer and pizza pairings for some inspiration. But I digress. Anyway, so Tube Station offers some fresh and tasty salads to balance out all that cheesy goodness.

Now, I don’t know about you, but I can’t resist a side of crispy fries with my pizza. Their fries have the perfect balance of crunch and seasoning to satisfy my taste buds. Plus, they’re an ideal companion for dipping in some garlic or ranch sauce. Trust me, it’s a guilty pleasure worth every bite.

Oh, and let’s not forget the importance of convenience. I mean, sometimes I just want to sit on my couch, stay in my PJs, and devour some pizza. That’s where Tube Station’s efficient delivery service comes in handy. I’ve never had an issue with their delivery – the pizza always arrives hot, fresh, and right on time.

Lastly, let me just say that their menu has something for everyone. From classic pepperoni to more adventurous toppings, there’s no shortage of options. I’ve even heard whispers of some downright delicious dessert pizzas or pizza and dessert pairings. So, next time you’re in the mood for a slice or two (or twelve), don’t forget to jazz it up with some fantastic extras from Tube Station. Bon appétit!

Non-Pizza Options

At Tube Station Pizza, you might think it’s all about pizza; but let me tell you, they also have some scrumptious non-pizza options on the menu. Their salads are an excellent choice, especially with a tasty flavored Ranch sauce. I’ve had my fair share of Ranch sauces in my day, but their tangy version takes the cake. Or should I say pizza?

And who can resist a good serving of fries? Not me, that’s for sure. If you’re looking for a crispy, golden-brown side dish at Tube Station Pizza, their fries are the way to go. They pair perfectly with the diverse dipping sauces that are available, whether you like your sauce spicy or mild – they’ve got your back. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.

Did I ever think I’d find mouthwatering non-pizza options at a place called Tube Station Pizza? Frankly, no. But let the record show, they do not disappoint. So next time you’re there, don’t overlook their salad and fries options. Give them a try!
