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.

Outstanding!

This is by far the best restaurant in Beijing, and probably one of the best in the world. Legendary.

A friend recommended this place for both the food and the service. Having sampled a large number of upscale dining in Shanghai, I expected something similar when I went there for lunch with a friend. I was amazed by the quality of the service. The food in itself was delicious, with surprise nibbles in between courses, but what really took... More

This was our second trip to Beijing so we previously had the opportunity to sample several fine restaurants in the area, but nothing like Temple. We walked to the restaurant from Tieanamen Square which was about a 1 1/2 mile walk, but well worth the walk. Temple is located in an ancient Lama temple in an ancient hutong which is... More

If you want to treat yourself on a visit to Beijing, go to this restaurant. Although slightly tricky to find, it is a super venue. On arrival a reception area served some complimentary fizzy.
