Great choice of food.

We stopped here at the drop of the hat while driving to a spa in California. This was a flip of the coin choice for the both of us. We were well rewarded for our choice of restaurants.

This place really does make it right! Everything tastes fresh and the breaded chicken dishes aren't all bread. I like to taste my chicken and not have pieces of all breading and fat. With that said if you like more breading and less chicken you won't like it, because you actually get chicken and big pieces here. I LOVE IT!... More

This is one of my favorite Chinese restaurant in Marin County. Service is very good and fast, food is fresh and tasty. Take away service is also working perfectly.

I stumbled upon Jennie Low’s about 20 years ago in their original location in Mill Valley. In those days I visited the North Bay area a couple of times a year on business. Jennie Low’s became a must do stop on my trips and I became known as ‘the customer from Florida’. Well, the Mill Valley location is now gone... More

Ordered delivery and it was ok, slightly over priced. Then went in person and it was bland/bad. The service was nice, but the decor seemed very outdated.

They have a nice variety of Chinese cuisine, great soup's with a good selection of light creations. I would recommend Jennie's if your not in the mood to cook and just want to bring something home. Also the prices are in line with everyone else.

There are several Chinese food restaurants in Novato. This is probably the best one. Have eaten here many times and the quality of the food and service is very good. Try some of their specials.

A great spot for a quick and easy dinner made with light oils and fresh ingredients. Not the normal heavily seasoned and oily Chinese fare.

We were very sad when our local (Mill Valley) Jennie Low's closed. We still crave their food, so when we are in Novato we love eating here, or getting take-out. EVERYTHING is tasty, and they have incorporated special dietary needs into their offerings - like porkless hot & sour soup or "light" dishes.
