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. Cava as your friendly and exceptionally professional staff first come to... More

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!). The chef will also randomly give... More

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. We ordered a bottle of sparkling & the staff still gave us some wine to accompany our dishes. The food speaks for itself while we just cannot say enough about the service.... More

Housed in an old courtyard sitting next to the wall of the forbidden city, the restaurant has a stunning view - a very nice choice for dinner dates and special occasions. The mix and match menu is a great idea, everything is delicious and elaborate, with the exception of the dessert which was rather at the level of a mid-range... More

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.
