    In the evening we had dinner with our group on the Jumbo Floating Restaurant. This restaurant is pure glitz; every Chinese symbol and ornament imaginable was put on the outside and inside of the structure. The food was terrible and we all wished that we had skipped the whole evening. This was especially true for the couple that had come back early from Macau just for the dinner. The view of the restaurant, as seen from the boat tour around Aberdeen the previous day, would have been enough.

    Aberdeen
    Aberdeen is a scenic highlight of any trip around Hong Kong Island. Brightly decorated trawlers, which double as floating homes for Aberdeen's fishermen, fill a sheltered harbour whose hillsides are decked with woodland and residential towers - not to mention Hong Kong's famously glitzy floating restaurants.

    I actually didn't eat here but snapped a picture during a boatride past-- The Jumbo Floating Restaurant. I can not vouch for the food or prices but it definately would be an experience to eat on this large floating restaurant (near Stanley Market I think)

    I normally wouldn't recommend anyone to do the real touristy stuffs but I am going to make an exception here. You must come, at the very least - once - to the Jumbo Seafood Floating Restaurant. This floating restaurant will provide motor boats to ferry customers to and from Aberdeen (waterfront) and is a particularly pretty sight at night.

    I know most people would advise you against coming here. But then again, this restaurant is almost like a national monument. So you must come and have a meal here (be it for - lunch or dinner). The Jumbo Floating Restaurant.

    As much as the food, the adventure of going to this famous restauarant known simply as 'JUMBO'S' is an enjoyable and different experience. To get to it, you are transported by a small ferry boat owned and operated by the restaurant.

    It seems that many VT members who have been to this restaurant are not aware of this free service.

    The fact that it is a floating restaurant is unique and, of course, it is heavily decorated. The lights which you can see in the picture makes for quite a sight.

    In actual fact, for all of the unique qualities and ambience, you can get comparable food at half the price in many smaller and less glittery restaurants in either Hong Kong Island or Kowloon.

    Favorite Dish:
    There were four of us who all ordered different kinds of seafood dishes and then split them up amongst the group. The hot and spicy fish was exceptional as were all of the other dishes.

    Great looking restaurant. It's actually a big floating boat.

    Favorite Dish: Average food, average service, above average prices, but give it a try just to see the boat.

    It is a bit touristy, but the food was good. Jumbo is a floating resteraunt in Aberdeen. You need to take a little boat to get there

    We took the Jumbo Floating Restaurant shuttle out to the big boat, but the food did not look like anything special so we passed on the food.
