I was taken here for a business lunch, so it was a group of 6 and there were many dishes served, but all the locals raved about the chili crab and, of course, we had it. It was certainly enjoyable, but I agree with several other reviewers that it's no longer very "chili" and the sauce is now much toned... More

I'm a Long Beach fan and remain one - but I was very happy with the food and service at Jumbo. We called ahead and got a 9.30pm reservation, arrived at 7pm, was told 90 minute wait but were called 10-15 minutes later to return. Chilli crab comparable to Long Beach, Pepper crab, not as good as Long Beach. More... More

Food was delicious, but staff members gave me poor service. The company ought to do something about the poor service.

We were at the Singapore Botanic Gardens and decided to go to Jumbo, which is nearby, to have chili crab, one of Singapore's signature dishes. What a messy and delicious meal! When we arrived, we were told that they were totally booked with reservations, but fortunately one of the waiters found us a table. We were supplied with bibs and... More

If you plan to relish Atlantic Cod or Blue Crab, then you must try it with Jumbo. Try chilly crab or Barbecue sauce Cod.

The renowned Chilli Crab has changed over the past 40 years in Singapore and Jumbo is no exception here; the crab dish is now sweet chilli with little "heat" and finishing the sauces becomes overly sweet for the palate. We enjoyed experience of seeing the small truck pull up with the days catch and see the chefs selected or rejecting... More

Love crabs this is the place. Spicy crab in red curry is what we had and it's really delicious. All other food we have ordered was very good and delicious. This place is crowded so make sure to reserve a table.

Food was okay... pretty standard as compared to other Jumbo outlets. Ambiance was better here though, with a more exclusive feel...

Our family had a Chinese New Year Reunion dinner at this restaurant. It was crowded as usual. We waited for a long time before food started to arrive and for a long time before we finished our dinner. The staff could not cope with the demands of service though they tried their best. Generally, the food was good. They maintain... More
