We like this location as well as the branch at NSRCC

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... read 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.

A great restaurant for seafood in nice location. We ate prawns and squid with chilly, crab in pepper and various other dishes ordered by friends who live in Singapore. Bibs are useful when dealing with the crabs. I have no idea of prices as we did not pay but i am sure it is reasonable and would defo go back.

Haven't been to this one before on previous trips, but found the restaurant to be serving up the same quality dishes expected at the other Jumbo restaurants I've been to. Service was very good as always, but didn't like the fact that the waitress was trying to push 'Canadian crab' over mud crab. When I asked if it was dungeness... More

We ordered the usual crab, fish and other dishes. The quality screams "central kitchen". You can taste the sauces out of the plastic bags and not freshly chopped minutes ago. The quality of seafood is as good as heartland hawker centers, not really restaurant standard by far. Do note that Jumbo was the only loser of 3 "Gordon Ramsey hawker... More

This place has been recpmmended by singapore based friends. We enjoyed a nice black pepper crab....it could not have been more delicious. Upon checking the bill we noticed that they charge us 1.50$ for the peanuts that were served with the drinks. We never ordered these nuts and thought they are complementary. This was the only drawback. U should book... More

U loved it except for the nuts they offer which are probably complimentary but I got charged for them. My advice is don't accept anything they offer unless you don't mind otherwise you will be charged for it.
