The Temple is a nice restaurant with a fantastic menu and upscale service. I love lunch offer! Between the meal you are spoiled by little treats from the kitchen. There is a nice neighborhood to stroll after the meal. This is the right place to explore your senses with taste, look and feel.

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.
