This cross of Japanese and Chinese food restaurant is located in the Roosevelt Mall at 2117 Cottman Avenue. Jannie’s seeks to accommodate the public with take-out, as well as being open seven days a week for both lunch and dinner. There is plenty of parking in the spacious lot out front, as Jannie’s is located in a mall.
I was seated promptly, and a friendly waitress hurried over to my table shortly after my arrival. The tables were covered with white clothes, which appeared to be removed after each seating. The silverware and plates were clean, as were the glasses. Jannie’s is a casual environment that offers a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere for its diners. It even has a small teapot and cups that the staff brings over to your table when you are ready to order. The tea was very warm and always kept full, although the flavor was kind of flat. The food was served warm and punctually upon ordering.
