If dim sum or Cantonese fare is not your cup of tea, this is an excellent alfresco alternative, located on the roof of Jumbo Kingdom and offering comfortable sofas and oversize chairs grouped under and around awnings and a flamboyantly ornate Chinese dining hall, where an open kitchen turns out mouthwatering seafood delights from around the world, as well as other dishes. The menu is so extensive it's hard to know where to start. Thai, Japanese, and Indian appetizer platters solve part of the dilemma by providing a sampler of goodies from those countries, while the seafood mountain comes with lobster, oysters, mussels, Alaskan King crab legs, prawns, and other seafood, along with dipping sauces. For a main course, choose from salmon, tiger king prawns, steak, and other options from the grill, fish and lamb chops from a tandoori oven, Asian curries, pastas, pizzas, and burgers. For those who feel cheated choosing only an item or two from the menu, try the Sunday seafood brunch buffet to 4:30pm instead, complete with a children's play corner to accommodate the many families who come here (the boat ride to the restaurant is a bonus, as is the children's menu). A great place to chill out.
