First time at Jumbo in Dempsey hill (first time to Dempsey hill). Been to Jumbo and eastcoast and clarke quay over the years. Of course this was the same quality as I've had from the others. The great debate between pepper or chilli crab goes...on. We prefer chilli crab. But the must have with the crab is not the buns, although we had them of course, BUT the seafood fried rice. The perfect way to soak up all the chilli juice.........More

Extremely helpful staff. Food was great except that the chilli crab was a little on the sweet side for my liking. Nevertheless we have enjoyed the experience.

Mediocre, no longer the same good food Jumbo used to serve. The atmosphere (outdoor Dempsey) also needs a overhaul

I have been there many times, but my last visit was shocking. We ordered lobster cooked two ways. Lobster was overcooked and rubbery. One of the dish was cooked with glass noodle and it was greasy. We ordered steam fish and it was tough! Inedible...to me. I cook fish better at home. The restaurant was quiet for a Friday evening. So sad how the quality has deteriorated so badly. I gave feedback to the manager, only meek apology was offered.More

Booked a table for 5 on Chope, however was given an outdoor seating, granted that during the booking it did not allow me to choose either an indoor seating or an outdoor seating. Order a couple of dishes which were honestly not great. We ordered...the Donut with seafood paste, Beef fillet, broccoli with scallops, chilli crab, fried fish in soy sauce, and Hong Kong noodles. Jumbo is famous for the chilli crab but it was nothing short of a disappointment, the chilil sauce was blend and taste like cheap ketchup. Albeit the crab was really fresh and sweet. The other items were comparable to coffeeshop tze char food with a heavy price tag. Jumbo used to be a go to place for chilli crabs but I guess not anymore.More

The waitress who served is was top notch! Patient and very helpful. But the food we ordered arrived so randomly ie tofu first, followed by kangkong and then nothing else for a while. I said it should come with the fried rice which came altogether...with the chilli crab as well! Wish there was more sense in their food service order. Besides that it was all very delicious. It would also have been nice if they changed the messy tablecloth when they cleared the dishes like some restaurants do, before the dessert.More
