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.

A "Must Visit" restaurant in Beijing

If you only have time to visit one restaurant in Beijing then Temple is the place. 600 years old temple, artworks, food and service unbeatable.

Very good setting for an unexpected venue of a western food restaurant in Beijing, an old temple! The interior simplicity contrasts with the more traditional exterior renovation. The service is attentive and well timed for each part of the meal. The food is well prepared and fresh, their set menu are prepared in order to give an experience to bring... More

This restaurant is hidden off the beaten path but worth finding. We almost got into an accident trying to find this place, but we were glad we persisted. The atmosphere is very relaxing and inviting. The plates were small but they kept coming! We order soup/salad and a main course each. However, we received a lot of other plates that... More

The place is located in an old Chinese temple, but the cuizine is french, inner and outer decorations are very beautiful. Food and atmosphere were great. Stuff was amazing. We ordered from degustation menu and wine-tasting, stuff also offered us a present form the restaurant. Everything was tasty, but it was too much food for me.

What do you expect from a best fine dinning restaurant all over Asia other than just sitting down and try it by yourself?

We went to TRB after a friend who had visited Beijing recommended it. For circumstances outside our control we had to cancel our reservations here twice, but finally made it on the third try.

Came here for dinner because of the TripAdvisor review and I wasn't disappointed. The menu was interesting as you pick an appetizer and an entree and the rest of the courses come automatically in between. I was definitely very full, but wished that there were fewer courses/appetizers in between but perhaps of a higher quality. I understand why there's the... More

I had a good time here, but TRB's greatest strength is its location. And the price. I don't know where else you could get a 5 course tasting menu for 50 USD in a hutong temple -- for brunch. It is a great atmosphere, and it feels like a luxurious experience without being gaudy. The service is also very very... More
