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.

TRB came highly recommended and we were not disappointed, Taxi driver got lost and had to ask directions and this added to the experience. A truly magnificent setting in an old temple in an old Hutong. Everything was of top standard. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food and wine was out of this world. TRB would suit...

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. Overall, this is a world class experience in... More

Made reservations for lunch at TRB on a weekday in November because of all the great reviews I read. Am happy to say that TRB exceeded these expectations.

We had brunch there a couple of Sundays ago, and it was fantastic. There were two adult and two children; we were going to order one 8 course set to split between the two adults and 1 5 course set between the children.
