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.

Just one of those times when you know a restaurant gets overwhelmed. We were a large group. Our arrival clearly overwhelmed the restaurant. Food was cold. Service quite poor. And their ability to deal properly with food allergies was really compromised. It might be different if you are in a group of your. But a bus load? No.

After experiencing sometimes frustrating service at other Beijing locations, dining in TRB is like landing on another planet. It was exactly what we needed after a long, hot morning of sightseeing. The staff seem to have ESP, knowing what you wanted before you did. Just as a comparison, the service is as good as Eleven Madison Park in New York... More

First class - the food was heavenly and the service was exceptional. Our family party included three hopefully well-behaved children for a lunch and the experience was still relaxed - the staff displayed such thoughtful attendance to all of us. The food was exquisite and we were constantly surprised with small additional dishes to our order. The caramelized onion tart... More
