    Hong Kong’s landmark Jumbo floating restaurant towed away

    HONG KONG (AP) – A landmark floating restaurant that fed Cantonese cuisine and seafood to Queen Elizabeth II, Tom Cruise and millions of other diners was towed from the Hong Kong harbourfront on Tuesday after being closed by the pandemic.

    The parent company of Jumbo Floating Restaurant couldn’t find a new owner and lacked funds to maintain it after months of COVID-19 restrictions.

    The massive floating restaurant designed like a Chinese imperial palace on Aberdeen Harbour was known for its Cantonese cuisine and seafood dishes.

    It received over 30 million guests since its establishment in 1976.

    But Jumbo Floating Restaurant was forced to close in 2020 due to the pandemic, and all staff were laid off.
