After touring Stanley and Aberdeen, I grabbed a late lunch at the Jumbo Kingdom Floating Restaurant.

The interior was impressive.

There weren’t any tables for one, so I had a huge table for four to myself.

I was famished, so I ordered three items from the dim sum menu.

Ham & cheese puff pastries.

The ham & cheese puff pastries were almost too rich, between the buttery pastry and the cheese filling.

Pork dumplings.

The pork dumplings were disappointing. The sauce was too heavy on the vinegar and the actual dumpling wrapper was more like a bun wrapper than a dumpling one.

Shrimp dumplings.

The shrimp dumplings were my favorite. The wrapper was thin and soft. The shrimp filling was seasoned well.

Overall, this restaurant had a lovely ambiance, but the food wasn’t worth the prices they charged. If you go, you should go with a group so you can get your money’s worth.

    • It was definitely a cool experience! You have to take a boat to get to the restaurant, since it’s in the middle of the water. Lol! Exactly, the ambiance vs. the food explained the prices.
