We met very very rude and impolite women at the reception of the restaurant. I will never visit there again. I should have known that there are better restaurants where I can enjoy much delicious chili crabs, which are more preferable between local Singapore people.

The service was so so though the food was good. Breaktime had coming and a crew asked to move out while not finished my dish. Breaktime is important and I admit that, but felt almost kicked out of the restaurant.

A little bit spicy, a little bit sweet, and a whole lot of delicious, is how Singapore's most loved dish can be described. Despite the embarrassment that may follow from the messy and lack of dining etiquette that comes along with sampling a Singaporean favourite, you will end your meal licking your fingers clean, as many of the other diners...

Went to eat with my girlfriend. The food was generally fantastic and the waiting time for the food wasn't long either. However, we were quite shcoked when we realised we have to finish eating by a certain timing. We went at 6pm and had to finish by 7.15pm. Thought we had no time limit as other places we went didn't... More

Hm, yes it can be overrated, touristy experience, but I feel anyone who comes to Singapore must try Singaporean Chili Crab at least once. And this is a good place to try it. While the resto serves other types of crab dish, I recommend trying their signature chili crab. It is cooked in orange-reddish sauce that is sweet, sour and... More

Two friends took me to Jumbo while I was visiting Singapore and insisted I try their famous Chilli Crab. I was not disappointed. The crab was delicious. We also had some of their drunken prawns which again I could not fault. The restaurant was very busy but the staff were friendly and attentive at all times. The atmosphere was great... More

When visiting Singapore you must try their most famous national dish - chilli crab. For people who don't like chilli do not be put off by the name - the sauce is sweeter than it is spicy. What I love is the deep fried buns (mantou) that are served with this tasty dish. In Singapore the locals are evenly split... More

Chili crab was fantastic. The location is energetic - full of music and life. Try sat us at a round table with 3 other groups because the tables are quite large but our conversation was still private and we had a great view of their "aquarium" where they stick their fresh seafood. Service was quick, and English speaking. Bibs were... More
