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.

We went for our anniversary and had a great dinner. Food is excellent. High quality, fresh and tasty. Hands down one of the best (if not, the best) restaurant in Beijing (and likely, best in China). Decor is great for visitors and locals alike. Traditional and modern. My wife often goes for lunch during weekdays and it's always a great... More

The location was a little difficult to find but the resturant staff provided a good description for the taxi driver to find his way and we did the last 200 m walk into the Hutong. A pleasant surprise once we are in the resturant. Attentive service and very decent western offering. They help take a photograph for our birthday celebration... More

Great food, great ambience. Definitely one of the better restaurant in Beijing. We were a party of 4 and we arrived early and we were asked to wait at the bar. They served us some delicious bread while we wait and we ordered come drinks. The table was ready in 10 minutes and the rest it history. Strongly recommended

We are visiting TRB regular and the service, food, atmosphere, is always fantastic. Love the setting and staff. We are lucky to live in Beijing so we can enjoy it anytime. If you are here only a couple of days, I would recommend to take this one in your list of must visit!

We went to Temple for a small family dinner for a special occasion. Each element of the whole experience was well and truly exceptional. Although the food was beautiful - amazing dishes with wonderful combinations of flavours, not too big or small - what really made it for me was the service. The staff were all not only fluent in...

This month I had dinner at the Temple Restaurant in Beijing, and was blown away by the service. The staff are amazing and it was literally probably the best service I have had in a restaurant. The food itself was very good and extremely well presented. I had the lamb and with an appetizer the portions are a good size.... More

Loved having dinner the other night at TRB. It was raining, the Beijing taxi situation was a mess, and we were 40 minutes late for our reservation. I called to let them know we would be late, but I didn't expect this late. Understandably, they seated someone else at our table. But I didn't complain. They were the most gracious... More

The hutongs of Beijing are usually messy, frenetic and crowded, but when you step into TRB, you feel immediately relaxed and calm - removed from the activity just outside the door. This peaceful setting is rather difficult to find but the staff are excellent at directing lost people and taxis! I've know TRB right from the start of its life... More

Tucked away in at the end of a quiet street in a restored temple, is one of the best restaurants I have ever been too. We started our meal with warm smiles and a complimentary cool glass of Prosecco. And then the appetisers started coming in; all manner of beautifully presented bites that were also complimentary. In fact, half our... More

The quality of the service provided by all of the staff at TRB (parking guys included) matched with the exceptional fare rates as one of the best restaurants we have ever visited (in any country), we will talk about our evening for years to come. A must for any visit to Beijing.
