good seafood

Partner and myself went to Jumbo Seafood and ate outside. We had lobster and dragon fruit and prawn and sugar cane for entrée. We then had pepper crab which was very spicy which we like. The chilli sauce and buns were not spicy. We gave 4 stars for the food but three for the staff

Referred to Jumbo restaurants as having great chilli crab. Went on a Sunday night - the rush had gone, but the remnants still remained on empty tables. Ordering included asking about utensils to crack crab shell. "No" came the reply. Seemed odd, but decided to order anyway. Husband ordered whole fish. We also ordered rice, which we never received.

Excellent food! Very good service. Can go with big groups and there is a marvellous outdoor space to enjoy food and the excellent weather of Singapore. All crab dishes are excellent and if you like spicy there are couple to choose from. Other local dishes are also excellent.

I made a reservation for 6:30pm as my guest was craving for crab. Thought Dempsey will be a quieter place to take tourist for seafood. We turn up at about 6:20 and front reception saw my reservation at 6:30 and simply tell us we've to leave the table by 8pm. Then abruptly took us to last table outdoor seating without... More

Enjoyed an absolutely amazing dinner here with friends. The customer service was top notch, and the chili crabs were to die for. We also enjoyed the bamboo clams and other delicious seafood. Everything was fresh and very well cooked. I'll be back there on my next Singapore visit.

Went to many Jumbos, unfortunately the experience in Dempsey wasn't favorable. No one was bothered to attend to us when we arrived even with reservations made. We had to go into restaurant to look for someone else after 6-10mins of wait by the line, and few staffs even ignore our presence. Some dishes took over 40mins to serve and not... More

Prices are slightly on the high side but food quality is above average. It is worth it to join as a member of the Jumbo restaurant chain as you will receive a free cake or voucher for your birthday month plus emails on promotion items. I particularly like their one dessert dish - yam paste with Gingko nuts, which is... More

Had another great seafood dinner with the family - right from the nicely chilled mango duck salad to the baby squid and cereal prawn - especially good was the venison with ginger n spring onions with a rich meaty flavor - good offset to complement the seafood - and the fried rice with silver fish was divine. Then came the... More

Fabulous chili crab... at an affordable price. It's high up to go there. Former Dempsey Barracks are quite a long way uphill and once there, the restaurant is not easy to find. Go with a local if you can. Its all worth the search. The crab is just perfect. Great service and splendid seating outside. There are other Jumbo Seafood... More
