Good place for Singapore crab

This place is really good with its seafood dishes and particularly its crab preparations. If you like spicy, go for Pepper crab and if not, choose chilli crab. Thoroughly enjoyed the crab. The rest of the food is also of good quality.

During my first stay in Singpore I visited Jumbo at Dempsey. Very Nice locaton yet en wa wit lots of various restaurants with good paking facilities. Jumbo apparantly known as best in town, somewhat disappointed vs my maybe too high expectations. Service on an average level and quality food/ crab OK but highly priced.

Arriving just in time for lunch, we did not make a reservation so we were relegated to outside al fresco seating. It was a bit warm since the noon time sun was glaring but we were eager to try the chili crab. Thus, we bucked the heat and settled down. We ordered a slew of dishes ( see photos below... More

The service was simply poor. The dish of fried noodles had a piece of broken glass in it and the staff just simply apologized with a plate of fresh fruits and we had to have a series of arguments before the manager even consider giving us a discount when in fact they should have waive the cost of the meal,...

We have been to two of the Jumbo restaurants in the past few days, and the food here as well as at NSRCC, near the airport, is good. The NSRCC branch seems slightly cheaper, as well as less crowded. Favourites include the mee goreng, chilli crab with fried mantou bread, scallops with asparagus and crispy baby squid. Try the cod... More

A fish restaurant with a lot of Buzz! The experience is just great, with sea food that was the best I have tasted since I visited Jumbo's on the west coast two years ago! The way they cook crab is just out of this world, its tasty, messy, and great fun. Thank goodness the waitresses put a Jumbo bib on... More

Food as always was absolutely great, especially the black pepper crab. But the amount of customers compared to the amount of staff makes it very difficult to get anything ordered. Being spoiled living in BKK where the situation is the reversed, i think Jumbo should up their game and ensure better/quicker service.

Smooth booking via Chope. It's easy to use and also easy to make changes without calling. The food was great and the service waiters were very helpful. Thanks.

great seafood and efficient service. The pepper crabs were a first for me and easily the best crabs i have had in my life. the prawns and venison were also out of the world. Thankfully their last order can be stretched to 10:30-11pm, unlike a lot of other restaurants there, which take their last food order before 10pm.
