“Delicious scallop with fried yam”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

Despite its busy-ness, we only had to wait 5mins for a table. Ordered chilli crab, yang chow fried rice and scallop with fried yam. The latter was my fave- a must try! I don't usually eat crab but this crab was very nice too. Great view and large open air restaurant, very busy, just how we like it! We ate at the East Coast restaurant and waiting for a taxi was a nightmare, but other than that, def go and try it out.

“Tourist Trap”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

Thsi place is a tourist trap known for overcharging customers. Ask for the prices before you order and check your bill carefully!

“Cheap(er) Chilli Crabs”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Went to East Coast Park and decided to give Jumbo Seafood a go.
Price wise was slightly cheaper than Red House Seafood Restaurant. Service was a little slow and took a long time for the food to come out. I am giving it a 3 star because the service is plain horrible.

“Great food in an informal setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

Having frequented jumbo at Clarke Quay on many occasions we opted to try east coast which is closer to home for us. We weren't disappointed and though heavily popular on weekend it has a very nice atmosphere. Would recommend you book ahead and also reserve an outside table (weather permitting). The indoor seating area tends to be. Little too noisy in those busy periods, so if you're intent on having dinner conversation you're better off in the outside area.

“Love the Chili Crab”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

I maybe have not visited most of seafood places in Singapore. But among all seafood places I've tried, Jumbo has the best chili crab taste. Try order it with the small bun. However, the price is not cheap.
