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.

Pricey but worth it!

The food is expertly prepared and menu is thoughtfully put together. The service is western standard. Overall, pricey dinner, but worth if for special occasions. Good wine list and amazing location too!

TRB temple has a long 700+ history. It was closed for over a year for remodelling. When it first opened, it was one of the hottest place to go to for great dining experience. Even after years of operation, Ignatius (restaurant owner and GM) continues to do a great job with this place. There are times when food service is... More

We heard a lot of good things about the restaurant and decided to go with another family together for lunch. The place is beautiful, the restaurant in high class but very welcoming. The food was delicious and they bring you many small things to taste between the dishes. The price is reasonable if you control the drinks, they have 3... More

Went a couple of months ago and first feedback would be about the great service first, slightly aheadof the food to me. Food was very nice but mamhave expected to much based on word of mouth. This said, there s no better French food in Beijing not even close. Wine list is great and suggestions are right on. Aperitif and... More

As a person from South, we have high standard to food and service. TRB is just a suprise and we are very happy to see BJ has high quality food and service available now. We booked for lunch and ordered 4-course only but the staff sent us lots of snack and desert as complimentaries. Every course is just perfect in... More

The quality of service here is very high. All the staff are highly professional and courteous. Expect lots of complimentary small dishes (amuses bouches), a free glass of sparkling wine on arrival, even a free glass of Chablis because the sommelier thought it a more fitting accompaniment to the food than the red wine I chose! The menu has a... More

We spent six nights in Beijing, and this was by far the most wonderful dinner that we had. Quaint hutong location (tough to find -take a cab). Beautiful, minimalist space. Great food - gazpacho and short rib highly recommended. Impeccable service, including complimentary champagne when you come in and bonus tasting-portions of wine that the staff thinks would compliment your... More

Tucked in a small hutong and housed in a 60-year-old temple, TRB impresses the Beijing dining scene with its excellent service and romantic ambiance. Oftentimes, I visit this place on special occasions as family gatherings and dates. Last weekend, my friend and I decided upon a spontaneous foodventure to TRB— it was my first journey there without a reservation. In... More
