User reviews of Joy City Chaoyang 朝阳北路大悦城
We visited this place on the way to visit a friend and wanted to buy a gift. There are many chinese brands and the upper floors have a huge restaurant floor. We had coffee here and decided will visit for a meal to try to some chinese food at one of the restaurants which looked promising. Its modern, clean and new.
Yes...Xidan also has a Joy City...although ten times better than this location...which is really just a massive mall....not much else...although I will say they have a good shop selection, but restaurants/other attractions are minimal compared to Xidan or other large shopping malls in Beijing.
Wandered over here a few weekends ago and was not impressed. The store selection is weak (just your usual Jack & Jones, Only etc.) and the restaurants are so-so (it does have a Bellagio, but everything else is the usual Beijing mall-fare: Dolar Shop, Korean fast foodie type places etc.) Probably the best thing about this place is the underground supermarket, which is great for the surrounding residential compounds, but just about it.
Seems like the whole city is being planned around malls. Note to city planners: Less malls, more parks.
This will be an awesome mall once everything inside is open for business. Last time I was there, their fitness centre, karaoke were still closed. As for the stores, they dont have the 'must have' brands like Zara, HM, Uniqlo, Mango... But they have OVS, an Italian brand, which is very nice and I have never seen of in any other malls in Beijing.
They have good restaurants. I was thrilled to find Pepper Lunch there. But once I tried it, it's very disappointing (I should write an individual review for Pepper Lunch but couldnt find it in the directory).
Good supermarket, very similar to Ito Yokado. At night they give discount to all sushi, sashimi, and other things that expire on that day.
Despite all of that, I dont think I will ever go back there anymore since I already moved from that area. Well at least until subway line 6 opens.
