The set menu price is average and affordable. Food was above average. Nice presentation of food, but kind of lack of some wow factors. The dining experience was quite casual as well.

We ate here on our last night in Beijing. The food was offered with a nice variety of 3-5 course selections and my boyfriend asked for the chef recommended wine pairings for each course. I am a very picky eater and I found every bite absolutely delicious. More outstanding was the service. From the moment we stepped inside until we... More

The total experience is special and we enjoyed the food, service and we think value for money is also great by international city standard. Venue: This place is hard to find as it hidden in a narrow "HuTong" near forbidden city. Just when we thought we got lost, we saw many luxury cars parking outside a temple looking door. Here...

I could write a book on why I feel the restaurant is the best I have experienced in the last 20 months of my expat life here. For starters, the entrance and ambience. The restaurant is in a temple.

If you're looking for world-class cuisine, you cannot miss this gem. Incredible wine selection that will drop the jaw of any wine enthusiast. Excellent meats, fish and fowl. Highly recommended! Also, it's beautiful inside and very tastefully decorated.

I was there for a business dinner with twelve others, but the service was still efficient even though we didn't order the same menus. The portions are small so you don't feel overstuffed. There were also nice surprises, such as I got a bowl of ice-cream with strawberries even though I just ordered de-caf cappuccino for dessert. The presentation of... More

We returned to Temple Restaurant Beijing (TRB) during our most recent visit to Beijing. Bottom line: if we can go to just one restaurant in Beijing, this it it. It's one of the major reasons we keep returning to Beijing from the Philadelphia area. We have always come for lunch. They do a nice three course lunch for 198 RMB,... 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.
