THe food is standard Jumbo - excellent stuff on offer. the black pepper crab is better than the chilli. i somehow cannot understand why the chilli crab is called chilli crab as it is more sweet than hot. in fact to me there is no trace of heat in the dish at all. however, it does taste good with the buns.

there is one dish that is normally not available or gets bought out very very fast. you need to either order before you reach or you need to be very lucky. it is quite expensive also - SGD 11 per piece. it is a strange dish to have in a seafood restaurant. but it is one of the best i have ever had - it is a lamb chop - made from baby lamb - it is just exquisite.

you are recommended to have a reservation. otherwise it will be a bit of a wait especially on weekends and in the evening. wehave never got a chance to eat inside - it has always been an outside seat. and this can get hot.

the staff are by default welcoming and very professional and helpful.

despite all this, i like Jumbo's ECP outlet better as it is bang on the seaside and you have a nice view. if you are lucky you will have a nice breeze and it has almost never rained whenever we have been there - so we sit outside.

Having eaten at the East cost seafood park few years ago , i approached this trip with some hesitancy. ........ but the visit was absolutely worth it !!. from the crispy garlic chicken starter to the super pepper crab and steamed sea bass in ginger and soy the food was spot on. The ambience is far better than at their seafood park branch and service friendly as well.

Had the black pepper, chillie crabs and cod fish. It was good food, no complains.
Service was fast. It gets crowded so reservations are required. Did not particularly enjoy the home made bean curd dish.

Spicy Crabs are the specialty and they were up to the expectation! Slightly expensive but definitely worth the money!

Went here for a late dinner since other restaurants nearby were almost closing (9.15 pm) and selected few appetizers and two crabs (one chili & one butter poached) for the four of us. The chili crab was pretty decent but the butter poached one wasn't and didn't seem as fresh too. The staff didn't care much about our comments...The bill came out almost 400$ with only few drinks, so definitely no value for money here!!!
