We booked the riverside point restaurant about 3 months in advance as they get extremely busy. So busy that they leave a note on your table saying someone else has your table in 1 1/4 hrs. It is definentley not a sit back enjoy the food and view. It's a sit, eat and go. But having said that we picked... More

The sauce for the chilli crab at Jumbo restaurants is not over-spicy & has a background flavour of candle nuts or peanuts. Servings are generous & the accompanying sweet buns & rice make the need for other courses less pressing. You will have the choice of a number of locations.

It was the first time I ate chili crab and I was in short time covered with food. But yeah..delicious food, I must admit. Everything we ordered was really good. But the restaurant was very very very busy so we had to wait for a table. And for us was the first evening in the hot wet air of Singapore,... More

We ate at the Riverside Jumbos on Clarke Quay and I advise making a booking because it is very popular. We could only get a 9:15pm reservation and booked 2 days in advance. It is a fun experience wearing the bibs, getting stuck into the crab and being very messy. The crab itself was delicious but if this is not... More

Chili crab and the mee goreng was so delicious! The river side location has the best atmosphere and the food is one of a kind. Be sure to make reservations as the wait can be long.

Frankly speaking, too much positive reviews of this restaurant that I had tried twice during my two visits. One is Jumbo Riverwalk, one is in the East Coast. The atmosphere of East Coast is much better in terms of the environment for it is at the seashore with breeze at night. However, the price was very high regarding the quality... More

If you're in Singapore, you HAVE to try the infamous chilli crabs (brother pepper crab is also very tasty). This is place knows how to do them well. Unfortunately it's pretty expensive. And ambience isn't the best.

We have lived in Singapore on and off for over 3 years and never tried Jumbo. Decided to give it a try tonight. We had salted egg prawns, scallops and vegetables, and a pacific grouper (small). Our son had chicken satay. No alcohol. Bill was S$190. In my opinion, the food was good, but I have had better at the... More
