Floating Jumbo Restaurant in Hong Kong sinks – it was figuratively and literally the end of and era as the 46-year old iconic restaurant capsized into the South China sea on 18th June Sunday.
According to Aberdeen Restaurant Enterprises, the restaurant’s parent company, the vessel encountered extreme weather conditions near Paracel Islands, also known as the Xisha Islands, which caused the boat to sink partially on June 18.

“As the water depth at the scene is over 1,000 meters, (it makes it) extremely difficult to carry out salvage works. The company is very saddened by this accident.” Aberdeem said in a statement.
The floating restaurant had been one of Hong Kong’s most iconic tourist attractions. It suspended operations at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic on March 3, 2020, after suffering years of losses. During its heyday, the 45,000 square feet restaurant catered to more than 2,300 diners at full capacity.
