Many cities in Germany have similar looking TV towers with revolving restaurants. These are Stuttgart, Cologne and Hamburg:

Holiday Inn in St.Pete Beach, Florida

The building might not be the best but the views are great right on the beach.

@micro: the tower restaurant of the Stuttgart TV tower is not a revolving restaurant. But that of Florian, the TV tower in Dortmund is.

Tyholttårnet (124m) in Trondheim, Norway has a revolving restaurant in the topp floor of the tower. One round takes exactly 60min, and your ably to see about 95% of the city of Trondheim from there.

Oops, not? I was sitting in there last year for a cake & tea and I thought it was revolving. But maybe my memories are wrong because I've been to several of those towers. At least I'm pretty sure the one in Mannheim was revolving.

The sad thing is, that the Cologne and Hamburg restaurants have closed a few years ago, as they have become too expensive for the "Deutsche Telekom", the owner of all the German TV towers. If the rotation is too expensive, maybe they should have opened it without the rotation. The views have been so nice.

Does anybody have photos of the rotating restaurant at Central Plaza? I wonder how it works in a building with triangular floor plates.

If you are talking about Central Plaza in Hong Kong, then I'll have to convey the sad news that there is no revolving restaurant in that skyscraper.

Durban, South Africa has one 32 floors up at the John Ross Building overlooking the CBD and the southern hemisphere's busiest harbour - spectacular! Another revolving restaurant is also being built in the city.
