Tasty for Novato

Jennie Low's is a tasty Chinese food for Marin, but it doesn't compare to Chinese food you'll get in San Francisco

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 was actually authentic Chinese food that was well prepared and very tasty. I chose the "Jennie ' noodle soup which was... More

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.

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.
