With a “jumbo” ship floating at the center of Aberdeen Harbor, Jumbo Floating Restaurant pairs a perfect view of the harbor with amazing seafood and dim sum. Visiting the restaurant is a spectacle in itself, with a small boat ride as the only way to access the floating giant. Upon entering the restaurant, visitors will be dazed by the grandeur of this three-story and 76-meter-long restaurant. The exterior and interior of the boat mimic the ornamental style of an ancient Chinese palace. A vibrant large Chinese painting and golden dragons cover the walls and ceilings of the restaurant. Seafood fanatics will also be delighted as there are over 50 different kinds of locally and foreign caught seafood here. Some of their signature dishes include Flamed Drunken Shrimp and Sautéed Fresh Crab with Garlic and Chili.
