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.

Nothing quite beats lunching at TRB on a sunny, cool Spring afternoon. The ambience and quality of the service and food was superb.

I use to live close by in Sanyanjing hutong and it took a year before I ventured to this restaurant ! Joined by friends we opted for the Saturday morning brunch and it was worth every penny . An experience of great service , good food and attention to detail. Make this part of your Beijing experience !

Many people can easily put this in their list of top 5 restaurants, including myself. After traveling around the world and eating at restaurants such as Osteria Francescana, adding this one to the list was easy. The food was excellent, but the service was even better. This is not your average restaurant, so if you're looking for something to change... More

Every time we we come to this Ignace Leleir jewel is a fantastic and delicate culinary experience, beside a flourish and spectacular wine delicacies discovering. The most amazing is still the remarkable service and the staff professionalism, which is rare in Beijing. Hope we could come more often.

This was the first restaurant I visited this year for Restaurant Week, and I couldn't have been more eager for the occasion. Maybe because of such high expectations, however, I must say I found the dining experience somewhat disappointing. The food was mostly enjoyable but not particularly memorable (other than one of the amuse bouche and the dessert). In fact,... More

My husband and I had an incredible dinner here in October, 2014. Tucked away at the end of an obscure alley (make sure your taxi driver knows how to get there), this beautiful oasis awaits. This 600 year old temple has been stripped down and although the old ceiling beams are visible, the interiors are chic and white, the walls... More

Location is amazing..in a stunning old temple, when u arrive you ate sorrounded by ancient stones and charming lights... Entrance foyer is cozy, if your table is not ready yet you can enjoy there a glass of champagne. Food is excellent, service is very good. Quite expensive (about 100 euros per person + wine), reservation is highly recommended.
