Description: TRB serves contemporary European cuisine and is committed to providing the highest levels of hospitality for our guests. In creating our dining space, the Australian architectural and design firm Hassell emphasized the clean, light filled and thoroughly modern lines of what was once a television factory producing the capital's first black and white TVs. The history of the TRB compound spans 600 years: it includes ancient halls of worship, factories constructed after the Communist takeover and slogans left over from the Cultural Revolution. Renovation began in 2008, focussed on preserving all the layers of history and keeping as much as possible of the original structures.

Awesome food and presentation. We had to wait a while for our reserved table, but the free flow of sparkling wine and bar snacks meant the wait was no problem... All in all very good value for the money.

I chose this restaurant to celebrate my husband's birthday on Nov. 22nd and I have to say it was one of the best dinner experiences we have had. From the planning stage they were very responsive, they even reached out to ask what was my husband's favorite dessert flavors so they can have a treat ready for the special day.... More

Very good European cooking restaurant in a nice old temple not far from the forbidden city. Very friendly welcome and service; English and French speaking. We had a birthday and they prepared a special individual chocolate cake. In the menu of 8 dishes, wines come from all around the world. The sommelier was trained in Burgundy. A highly recommended place.

TRB came highly recommended and we were not disappointed, Taxi driver got lost and had to ask directions and this added to the experience.

This restaurant is one of the highest rated in Beijing for international travelers and is worth its ratings. The food is European and delicious. Unlike most places in Beijing, the service and hospitality are world class. Very sophisticated and formal with separate little spaces for tables. Guests feel very welcome and appreciated.
