Great place to have the Singaporean signature dish Chili Crab which is made by frying crabs with a fragrant red sauce. You get a nice bib to protect you from red sprinkles on your shirt. Additional to award winning Chili Crab they have all the seafood you can imagine. My favorite is the Geoduck Sashimi, the Drunken Prawns and the... More

Recently went to both Jumbo and Long Beach restaurants in Dempsey. Can't tell the difference between the two restaurants for Chilli crabs! BUT, you can tell a lot of difference between the two restaurants for Pepper Crabs! Jumbo has great pepper crabs - not too oily and taste wonderful. Long Beach's pepper crabs are too oily and wet! Two different... More

Good service. Impressed the restaurant to the extra mile to "cover" up our personal stuff in case the "splash" from the Chilli crab sauce: 1) my mobile phone is placed in a ziplock bag; 2) My bags are covered with a cloth; 3) we each have a bib tied around our neck. Also liked the quick and seamless reservation from... More

Jumbo is a must try for the chili crab and the cereal prawn! Nothing comes close! Nice ambience,very attentive staff and delicious food justifies the pricey menu. Jumbo should be part of every visitor's itinerary in Sg.

Decided to try this famous Jumbo seafood restaurant on Friday night, with family of four. It was fully booked for the night but thanks goodness, there is one table reserved for 8.30pm seating, hence our 6.30pm arrival can fit in one more dinner round for that table. Ordered a less commonly known pepper and salt crab (as my kids cannot... More

Nice chili and pepper crab. All other dishes is as good as expected too. However, plate service lady at this Dempsey outlet requires some training as they could have put down the plate more gently. The plate knocked against other utensil when it was replaced. Not sure it is a sense of nervousness or lack of training.

Getting tired of these restaurant all around S'pore. Can't complain about the food or the service, quick and gentle staff, food as per the picture in the menu, price reasonable. No fun, no difference to the other thousand places, no soul, no character, just another one !

Fantastic location, charming place with absolutely the best Chili Crab I have ever eaten. Outside dining gives the place a top ranking.

We had lunch here recently as part of a family vacation. Our daughter who is a resident chose this particular branch of Jumbo because of the ambiance and good service aside from the sumptuous food of course. We had chili crabs, cereal prawns, fried rice, seafood soup and an appetizer ( sorry forgot what it was!). We brought 2 bottles... More
