While visiting my parents in Novato, my mom suggested we go to Jennie Lows. It had been a number of years since I had eaten there so I thought it would be a good test. The Mongolian Beef was tender and delicious. I asked the server to not add the pepper pods and to keep it spicy. They did a... More

Fast and reasonably friendly service. Food is freshly prepared and consistently good. Prices are reasonable. When we want Chinese food, this is our first choice in Novato.

Lemon chicken, walnut prawns, broccoli beef -- Jennie Low's has all the classic American-Chinese fare, and it's well made. The wontons stuffed with meat is a favorite accompaniment, and it's a nice place for dining in or taking out.

Have dined here several on occasions. The atmosphere is pleasant. Service was reasonable. Food was good but lacked flavor. Stopped going there for meals.

Located in the Novato Oaks Shopping Center, this is a sister restaurant to one in Petaluma. There is an open glass kitchen where you can watch the chefs use their wok skills in preparing the dishes. The food is decent, a bit slanted to American tastes, however, if you want it spicy be sure to ask for it. The flavors... More

This has been our go-to Chinese restaurant for about 15 years. Always pleasant staff is eager to please with special requests. The food is nice and fresh, tasty, and nooooo MSG! Don't expect a fine dining experience here. More of a cafeteria environment, but clean and well kept. Great place for families.

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

I needed a quick meal, so we called and ordered. Upon arrival, our meal was ready as promised and already bagged. It was a large order that included 10 different items. Everything was delicious. They even confirmed changes in their recipe to accommodate a food allergy.

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
