A long-time favorite on the seafood restaurant scene, Jumbo began as a beachfront restaurant at East Coast and now has different restaurants scattered across the island. Nevertheless, the focus is still on preparing good Chinese-style seafood dishes. The black pepper crab and cereal prawns are perennial favorites.
Are you sure Gordon Ramsay managed to beat JUMBO??
I’ve tried chilli crab at a variety of restaurants and still find myself returning to JUMBO because there is that special something about the delicious semi-sweet savoury eggy gravy.
This is a great resource for JUMBO's top dishes and recommendations, with tantalising photos to boot.
I have always enjoyed Jumbo food and always recommended to my foreign friends there. But last night ，there were no baby squid, no bamboo clams. Chilli crab is definitely the star there. Pepper crabs were a tad too fiery for me. The rest of the dishes were only so-so. But what surprised me was that our bill came to be $450 for 6 of us!!
What I found extremely pricey were the Crabs-- we only had one crab each for the Chilli n Pepper, it cost somethinG like $94 each . So, just the crabs alone came up to be about $188! They had even made the mistake of charging us fir 3 crabs if I had not checked!
You might like to know the rest of the dishes we had were Cereral Prawns, Spinach with 3 egg, Garlic Fried rice, Phoenix Chicken which was recommended but nothing to shout about，Tofu with mushrooms n broccoli and 6 beers -- seriously,that was all !

The BEST Chilli Crab and Sauce that I had in my life! No wonder its named as Award-Winning Chilli Crab! The crabs here were very fresh with very firm meat! Warning: Unlike others were mostly sweet-spicy sauce, this is really real spicy sauce that tasted very shiok!!
Another signature Black Pepper Crab! Super real spicy - The black pepper was d*** good and really very HOT! Get ready your cold drink!
We love their Roasted Chicken as well! Very crisp with aromatic skin and tender meat, even including the breast meat! Just can't get enough of this.... Must-Try!
I heard that the restaurants are always busy and it seems to be true (at least in one of the outlets). My family dined at the Dempsey Road outlet and it was packed with lots of people despite it was already 9.00 PM.
1. Chili Crab ($54.40++)
Do you know what it is called when you successfully crack the thick skin of the crab and find plentiful meats inside, Happiness! The crabmeat was so delicate and sweet with a little spark of chili. You can never leave this restaurant without eating this famous chili crab.
