Tried their Singapore Chili King Crab with buns. Super delicious. Apart from that the Seafood Fried Rice is a must try too together with the Crabs. Occasionally come to this place whenever i craved for Chili Crab! Perfect place for dine in with Family and friends..

Food was good--and just like many of the previous reviews, Chili Crab and Drunken Prawn were very good--didn't have a chance to try the pepper crab as wife couldn't take too spicy stuffs. We also ordered the seafood fried rice--which I thought was mediocre (Maybe, we should have taken the waitress' recommendation of salted fish fried rice. Was fortunate that... More

I've been hearing about the infamous Jumbo Seafood for a while, so decided to finally give it a try. It really fell far short of expectations in most areas. Probably the most disappointing thing was the restaurant itself. The outside seating area looks great, but we opted to sit inside due to the heat. Big mistake. The benches are filthy... More

An excellent seafood banquet for our group. Starting with lobster, the courses just kept on coming. Finally ending with Singapore chilli crab. Plenty of really good seafood. Highly recommend.

Being from Indonesia, I go and visit Singapore at least once every year. On each visit I make sure I eat Chilli crab with buns at Jumbo Seafood Restaurant. I used to go to the one on the Stadium complex before they closed, so this time my cousin takes my wife and I to the one on Dempsey at Tanglin... More

Chilli and pepper crab was really good. We ordered prawns which was also good. They serve these buns to go with the chilli crab and that too was delicious. The place gets really crowded during dinner even on weekdays, so better make a booking. The service was very good and fast despite the crowd.
