Great for outdoor seaside evening ambience

This place is definitely a landmark founded in 1987 and since then Jumbo have established several branches in Singapore. The branch at East Coast Seafood Centre is one of the most popular with its views out to the sea and dining outside or inside.  This is a very big restaurant with many servers and is also very popular but everyone seems to get a seat.  Great for two people or twenty people.  Make a reservation first.     The locals tell me the food quality is probably better elsewhere.  It is also a bit on the pricey side, but you are paying for ambience.  Service is fairly mechanical and it is good to have someone in the group who speaks Chinese.  I can suggest the Mee Gorang, the spicy fried noodles.  Drunken Prawns are worth the adventure.  The Chilli Crabs are the speciality but overrated. In summary, a great location to go with friends or business colleagues and watch the big ships out at sea and enjoy the evening away.

Great service but mediocre food

Went for dinner yesterday.
 Service was great and at attentive
 
 Food service waiting time was not too bad .
 My only complaint is that food serve to the table are not hot
 Bamboo clams , steam crabs , scallops, youtiao are some of the dishes
 Guess it is ready for a while but no one to serve ?
 
 Am not sure and has feedback to the staff

Very over rated...

Had heard a lot about this place, before I decided to give it a visit. After a couple of visits, have decided not to go back.

Ordered sea food beancurd, broccoli with garlic, scallop with yam, venison and chilli crab. The scallop with yam was the only saving grace. The chilli crab was good, but nothing that I would not get elsewhere.

The service staff is anything but pleasant, and to add to it you have a cart with a dirty blue bucket moving around the restaurant, collecting used crockery.

Was not expecting fine dining, but definitely a better experience for the money paid.

suitable for bringing foreign friends

A fortnight ago l went to Jumbo restaurant with my girlfriend for dinner on Saturday night. It was very crowded so we had to stand in a long queue for 40 minutes  before we could get a table and place an order. I ordered an elephant clam cooked in two ways; raw and blanched , a Hong Kong steamed fish and a Yang Zhou fried rice. The service was slow as the food took 30 mins to arrive. The food was average , and the price was slightly higher  than other seafood restaurants.

Good food and good service

I am very happy with the service provided by 丁潘 who served us. She was very accommodating, pleasant and helpful with all our requests. It was a very happy lunch we had together at the restaurant. Thank you. 

The dishes were tasty and good. We had their signature chilli crabs, venison meat, brocolli with garlic, baby squids, orr nee. Highly recommended for a family gathering.

Always come back for the chili crab. 

The service was horrible compare to higher-scale restaurant, but that's the Singaporean standard anyway. Don't care too much lah just get your delicious food.
