Decided we would have a carry out for tea. Went to John Dorys. Was glad we did fish well cooked and batter light and crisp, chips were well cooked and crisp. Will be going back there again as was some of the best fish and chips I've tasted.

Go here a lot of Saturday nights for haddock and chips. Usually very good and big portions too. Parking can be a nightmare if you go around tea time. Leave it later if you can. If I finish work early again I think I'll try their new delivery service.

Had fish and chips from here last night (Monday 3rd Feb) and the fish was really greasy as were the chips which were also white and undercooked in my opinion. Thought it was important to put this up as other people are waxing lyrical about this place.

The food and service are second to none! we go regularly to the Carryduff branh but the Lisburn one is just as good. The chips are the best I have ever got in a chippie. Burgers and chicken goujons are always tasty and there's quite often a voucher offer on if you pick up one of their brochures in the... More

Cardboard tasteless burgers, dry buns and greasy fish. If this place spent more on its product and less on LCD screens and fancy bags then it might work. I have had food from a few in the East Belfast area also and its the same story. I went for one of their "Deals" lately and my sons kids meal had... More

The food is alright. I have been there a few times and thought the place was okay and the food was average. Would recommend if your low on money.
