Excellent multi-course dinner with friends in a reserved room for eight. Very difficult to find TRB, which is part of the charm. Immediately upon entering, a choice of some special drinks, we finished off the bottles of 71 and 73 Armagnac. Other choice whiskeys and wine; some wines were not available. The service and food were excellent, and the wine... More

The tasting menu was lovely, and I hear they rotate the offerings every few weeks. However, the star of the show was the service. We went to Temple to celebrate my sister's birthday and it was the highlight of our day. The staff was extremely attentive and pleasant (I can not say the same for many of the high end... More

Thank you, TRB, for another unforgettable culinary experience. All dishes were expertly prepared and plated. We loved every single course, especially the sweets. The restaurant itself was not easy to find, but definitely worth the effort.

We have been remiss in not posting this review earlier. We visited for lunch in late September. The serenity, the service, the food - all spectacular. Temple has hit upon the "secret" to leaving guests with the feeling that the pricey lunch is priceless: the surprises throughout the visit.

Everything about this experience was spectacular. The venue is beautiful and the service was top notch. You can either pick one of the recommended set menus or pick your own. I picked my own along with the wine pairing. Even though some of the options were outside of my comfort zone, I enjoyed everything. There are a lot of little... More

I had a great evening here: I was by myself, and the staff was very friendly and did everything they could not to make me feel alone. :) The atmosphere is lovely, it's a beautiful setting and very peaceful. Though I had to wait 30 minutes for my table, this was compensated for with generous top ups of bubbles. The... More

I have heard of the restaurant and always wanted to go. The reservation online is convenient and got a response immediately. The restaurant is also in contact through messaging to remind me and to arrange delays due to traffic. Upon arrival, we were greeted with free proseco (a treat I only enjoyed in Italy!).

Since 2 years ago, I visited TRB for 4 times already for family gathering, friends gathering, and business appointments. The location of TRB is a fun for all visitors to explore BJ in a little deeper manner:) The dishes and environments are excellent. Nothing much to add. All 4 visits were great!

Saw friends post pictures of this restaurant & finally got the chance to try it. Must admit that the food was very decent while the service was impeccable.

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.
