Aberdeen Jumbo Kingdom Floating Restaurant

I'm not sure whether to list this under restaurants or sightseeing attractions, but in the end I'll call it an attraction as nobody would go there for the food.  Not that it is all that terrible, but it is ordinary and the real reason to go there is the amazing location.

Take a taxi from somewhere like Stanley or Central and just ask for the Jumbo in Aberdeen, every HK taxi driver will know where to take you.

As it is a *floating* restaurant of course they take you to the pier.  And from there you have a great view into the harbour which is a mix of fishing boats and luxury yachts and everything in between.

Wait 5 minutes for the free courtesy ferry to take you over to the restaurant itself.

Once you dock at the ferry you'll be amazed at all the "Chinese" decorations, red dragons are everywhere.  It looks like a Chinese restaurant in London or New York but times 10.  Then up the wide staircase to the main dining area.  The murals on the way up depicting scenes from traditional Chinese painting are really quite wonderful. 

Then as for the food and dining itself, well it's ok but not extremely special or anything.  This is somewhere to go for the experience rather than the food itself.

It's best to arrive before sunset for the best view so that's a rather early dinner.  Or you can go there for lunch but it is more impressive in the evening because of the lights.
