Predictably Good food

We were invited to Jumbo by friends - they know my love of crabs (chillied or peppered). We were not disappointed; ordered a mix of different dishes and of course the chilli crab. Food was very good - even if they actually forgot the cod fish we ordered alonside the crab and other dishes. Its a... read more

My partner and it tried the restaurant and there were many issues. We had to Share a table and the annoying part about that was we were seated first by over 7 minutes and we were served second after the two other people sat at the table. Bad management skills if you ask us. The food for the price was... More

This is one of the places that everyone says is a must do. I think that the food is Ok, as you get to taste the Chilli crab or pepper crab, but I found it to be over rated... I did not find the food to be amazing, the place is always very full, so service is average, and thought... More

This whole area is great. Started with a few beers at a micro brewery that I've forgotten the name of and then here. Three of us had Pepper Crab and the biggest Talipa I've ever seen. It was fantastic. All cooked to perfection in a truly unusual setting. Felt quite un-Singaporian! If I'm lucky enough to return to this wonderful... More

We only managed to sit outdoors on that evening. It was not too hot with fans. We find the food very tasty and good. Service is very good.

Black pepper crab never disappointed me! Mocha pork rib was equally amazing too. The downside is that the price increased quite a lot compared to my previous several visits. Also the strong wind from fans (since we chose to sit outdoors for more nature experience) made dishes cool down fairly fast. :(

We wanted a quick and good quality and authentic seafood lunch and this delivered. The quality of the food was excellent. It was freshly cooked and arrived at the table still steaming. The prawns, venison, vegetables and seafood rice were all excellent. We had to sit outside as it was very busy but it didn't matter. Thanks - I would... More

It is a rather reputable restaurant which runs a reward scheme for members. They are very good with their seafood dishes and also the lamb chop but I was rather disappointed with their chicken dish. It is a must to try their yam paste dessert which was superb.

We made a reservation in advance a few days before our visit. Actually we were planning to have dinner at Jumbo Seafood Riverside, but unfortunately the restaurant was full booked. So we decided to have lunch on Jumbo Seafood Dempsey instead as it is the nearest Jumbo Seafood restaurant to our hotel. We arrived there a bit too early so... More
