Oh and just got our check, make sure when they ask you if you'd like water, know that they will give you a 75 rmb bottle of water that's not cold. Or you can go with the free ice cold lemon water.

Probably the best restaurant in Beijing...

Everything is incredible, though the rack of lamb comes with my highest recommendations. Consider holding off on desert, as it was the one lapse, and they bring out confections free of charge.

There's really no need for another rave review of this wonderful restaurant, as it has already cemented its place solidly in the top 5 restaurants you should visit while in Beijing. This is really a response to the review which states that somehow this restaurant damaged a historical site.Take a walk around the temple before or after dinner, and take the time to watch the restoration video. Realize how much time and effort it took for the owners to fully restore this hidden temple. Then as you head back to the restaurant notice that the restaurant is actually in a side room off of the temple. The reason for the national news report, is due to the close proximity of TRB to various govt offices/buildings, and its price point. This is a govt smear campaign, part of its "anti-corruption" (as it fears officials will have lavish parties at this restaurant).As a "responsible beijinger" there's a lot of things we should do to make this city better, but not eating at TRB seems like a ridiculous requirement.

The food exceeded expectations for the price – expensive for Beijing standards, but inexpensive for the great quality compared to other European restaurants.The history of the temple and surrounding hutongs are well worth appreciating - suggest taking a walkthrough these before or after your meal,I highly recommend this to all travelers to Beijing, for the atmosphere, architecture, and food.I Recommend taking a cab and a map to the restaurant, as the restaurant is not easy to find, even for the taxi drivers.

I already wrote a review which was first published then censured. Let's try again.Positive: location, environment, service, care for details.Negative: the menu is the most animal unfriendly I can imagine: pate de fois gras? octopus? abalone?To offer "European" food it does not mean to be so animal unfriendly and animal disrespectful; for a restaurant that has such a care for details, I would expect more animal-care in the menu as well.
