Came on a Sunday night. Male service staff in black was rude and condescending. Took the wrong order and grumbled that we had ordered it when corrected. Cancelled order begrudgingly and yet it still appeared in our bill at the end of our meal. Would have expected more out of a restaurant charging this rate. Food was average seafood fare.... More

First time at Dempsey jumbo. Beats having to travel all the way to UDMC for the original. This is as good if not better and tastier.

Visited Dempsey Hill for the first time and was really pleased with the restaurants on offer.We plumped for Jumbo and wasn't disappointed. People tell you that it's very touristy blah blah.. Which it is of course but it shouldn't distract from the very high quality of its food. Our main event was the pepper crab and it was amazing. The... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend. We turned up without a booking and were lucky enough to get a table outside on the verandah. There were two of us and we both had the pepper crab. It was fabulous. This was a wonderful way to spend a relaxed evening in a relatively quiet spot eating a Singaporean... More

One of the best Chili Crab in town. Just popped by last weekend and got our Chili Crab fix... with Bamboo Clams and Hong Kong Kai-Lan to go along. Perfect!

I had a fantastic dinner with a small group. The outdoor dining was a perfect atmosphere and the chilies crab and black pepper crabs lived up to the previously established high expectations. The black pepper crabs were my personal favorite.

Earlier in our trip we had dined at Jumbo's at Clarke Quay and were looking forward to ending our trip at Jumbo's. We had our concierge make a reservation at Dempsey. Even though the restaurant was empty when we arrived they stuck us at a table in the far back looking at the alley & service area. One would think... More

Introduced to this for the first time, a seafood salad that you stand and toss high above the plate to bring you good luck. Sweet, nutty , crunchy and surprising, i thoroughly enjoyed it. Yes, we had chilli crab and yes, we had scallops, soup, duck and noodles, but the New Year seafood salad was best!

The Singapore chilly crab is worth trying eventhough it is messy. Also try the BBQ whole fish worth the effort. Ask to sit in the patio area. The service was great.
