The restaurant is located inside a historical Temple courtyard-ZiZhSi that could be dated back to the Qing Dynasty. Interestingly contrasting with its ancient surroundings, the restaurant dining space, once served as the first black-and-white TV factory of Beijing, has been transformed by the Australian architectural and design firm Hassell, to a contemporary and minimalistic setting, emphasizing on the clean, light filled and thoroughly modern lines.

It is an exceptional restaurant, offering a Michelin-star experience. I travel extensively and dine in outstanding restaurants all over the world, and I was frankly shocked when I had heard that Michelin had finally arrived in Beijing, but TRB Hutong had not been awarded. In any event, the food and wine, the ambience and the service will all make it for a very special evening in one of the most beautiful and spectacular settings in the world.

Incredible New Year’s brunch at same table where my husband enjoyed his Easter brunch earlier in the year. He had promised to take me to this special restaurant during my holiday visit. The fact that they arranged to seat us at the same table was a bonus! Wonderful service, gracious staff, and the menu was spectacular.

Where do I begin?! Delighted to have scored a reservation at the #1 restaurant in the world according to TripAdvisor! Made this my last dinner in Beijing before leaving next day back to States and TRB made it most memorable! Everything from the location (stunning & historic hutong), reception, my table in the corner with a view of the courtyard, the artistic presentation of the food, wine, setting, attentive staff, to the fond farewell was every bit worthy of why TRB is #1! For dinner, I enjoyed the Tasting Menu Selection. Each plate presented beautifully and just enough to enjoy. I literally was scraping each dish to get that last taste! Could go on and on but one must go to truly experience. From the looks of satisfied diners around me...happy filled stomachs! Since I was dining alone, I made my husband back home jealous with the pics sent and i attach a few here as well. Have to plan out the next trip to TRB and Beijing. Thank you TRB for a most delightful evening and delicious dinner!

The food and service were amazing! We were late because we had a hard time finding the restaurant, and they graciously seated us even though the kitchen was just closing. And, they accommodated a vegetarian without any advance notice. The food was delicious and the wine pairing was perfect. I can't wait to visit Beijing again just so I can go to this restaurant!

The place was lovely! We did not expect the place to be fancy as the outside structures were somewhat traditional and classic but when we entered the restaurant it was very elegant. The staff were kind and courteous as they always guided us on every meal and the wine pairings. Overall it was a memorable experience and I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends and to anyone looking for a romantic date place in Beijing. Thank you again for hosting me and my wife on our wedding anniversary!

ランチの予約時間を過ぎて到着したがちゃんと席をキープしてくれて笑顔で迎えてくれて救われました。汗だくで到着したので冷たいおしぼりを提供してくれて嬉しかった。食事も素晴らしく、サービスも完璧。ドレスコードは特になく、ポロシャツとカーゴパンツでも特段問題なさそうでした。Tシャツと短パンは避けたほうがいいと思いますけど。食事の量は結構食べるほうですが最後のデザートまで食べきれず、結構苦しくなったのでメインを160gではなく80gのステーキにしておけばよかったwでも美味しくいただきました。北京でこのレベルのフレンチを味わえたのは期待以上でした。また行きたいです。

Had dinner at TRB Hutong. Really enjoyed our evening. We both had the seasonal tasting menu with wine pairings. Excellent food and wine although I could not finish the wine or the food. Evening made more special by excellent staff and Mike, the manager. Mike spent a fair amount of time chatting with us, talking about the wines , the food and the restaurant and his life in China. The restaurant is not inexpensive but is a worthy splurge.

Although the overall quality is still high, being this my seventh time at TRB, I have noticed a lower level of the food offers.
It was a Sunday brunch, but this should not make the management think less about this important weekend meal.
There is quite a competition around Beijing so I expect TRB to make some better culinary effort to keep up its brand.

for the "best restaurant in Beijing" the food taste was bland, the service was exceptionally slow and the overall experience a disappointment.

A great location and with huge potential, but the staff was below what you would expect when paying their price range and all the dishes were too general. Nothing stood out, nothing was truly memorable. With 7 pax coming from Europe, Russia and Singapore we would have thought that someone would like to come back, but unfortunately, with our experience, this was not the case.

Invest in bolder choices for your recipes (we had the Indulgence and the Seasonal Tasting menus on the table) and make sure your staff is a lot better trained to provide service, feedback and comment to requests.
