China Village is in a shopping mall with Harvest Market, quite a way down San Marin Road in Novato. The food isn't an upscale Chinese style, but it is fresh and delicious and worth driving a bit extra to enjoy.
I tried the Broccoli with Black Mushrooms. The black mushrooms tasted a lot like shitake, which is one of my favorite mushrooms. The broccoli was perfectly cooked, thoroughly but with a little bite left. The color was good too.
I also had Shrimp Fried Rice which impressed me with its moist, flavorful and good sized shrimp. It was laced with vegetables and well seasoned. I enjoyed the dinner very much, and have plenty left over for dinner tomorrow.
