The food was so bad that it immediately made my stomach turn. I had to use the restroom, and apparently it made lots of other peoples stomachs turn as well, because the bathrooms were absolutely disgusting with diarrhea sprayed all over the one of the walls. I will never step foot in this restaurant again, I have no idea how... More

We were driving home, tired and worn out from a day in San Francisco. We were hungry and wanted a quick dinner. Being in a hurry, I suggested a Chinese Take-Out dinner, and I thought of Jenny Low's in Novato - on the way and hopefully quick. Chinese Take-out is always good. The meal prepared for us was not just... More

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
