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.

Yet another outstanding dining experience at TRB. Consistency of service and food is what makes this restaurant stand out. Of special note, one of the diners arrived at the restaurant with luggage and this was checked, as expected, however at the end of the meal when we departed, one of the staff carried the bag to the car, not expected...

This is my second visit to TRB. It is also one of the reason that I visit to Beijing every year now. I could not find such personalized fine dining anywhere at this reasonable price range.

The Temple Restaurant Beijing is really not about the food or the service it is the best that one may ask for - exceptional food & personalized service - but what sets this restaurant apart is an ultimate dining experience - this is an experience.

This place is incredible. I have been many times, while I was living in China and it never disappoints.

This was day 2 for us in Beijing. Our first experience of Beijing dining was Peking Duck at what can only be described as a slum restaurant. So we didn'. Know quite what to expect on recommendation number 2! The staff at TRB were amazed we had found them on foot, but seem genuinely interested in our tour. Stanley, Patrick,... More

From a culinary perspective, we found Beijing somewhat challenging...TRB stands clearly stands out.

There's really no need for another rave review of this wonderful restaurant, as it has already cemented its place solidly in the top 5 restaurants you should visit while in Beijing. This is really a response to the review which states that somehow this restaurant damaged a historical site. Take a walk around the temple before or after dinner, and... More

The food exceeded expectations for the price – expensive for Beijing standards, but inexpensive for the great quality compared to other European restaurants. The history of the temple and surrounding hutongs are well worth appreciating - suggest taking a walkthrough these before or after your meal, I highly recommend this to all travelers to Beijing, for the atmosphere, architecture, and...
