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

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. 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 The service was nice, but the decor seemed very outdated.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.
