A photo c.1970 showing the revolving restaurant, said to be the first in hong kong.


I recall eating at this restaurant several times, taking business visitors. The second revolving restaurant to be established in Hong Kong was in the Peak Tower, probably in the early 1970s.

I spent ten years as from 1973 working as a solicitor with Johnson, Stokes & Master in their Mongkok office on the floor immediately above the HSBC's offices. The HSBC building was adjacent to the Juno building. The Juno was a frequent choice for workday lunches and set lunch comprised soup, main course and dessert plus a coffee, all for HK$6.50. The fare was quite tasty except for the soup we called the Mark 1 cream soup because its taste always remained the same whilst only its colour changed. The best part of the Juno experience was the panoramic view over Kowloon with particular reference to watching the planes taking off and landing from Kai Tak airport.

Hi There,

I believe the building and the rotation mechanism are still there despite out of use.  I have a faint impression that after the restaurant folded, some Chinese\Cantonese Restaurant took up the space and ran for some time before finding closing for good.
