I have been to Derry's a few times before and really enjoyed it and the chicken balls were always my favourite as they have more chicken the batter. We picked up take out after a long trip from Toronto and was looking for something easy...for dinner. However the chicken balls were so tuff I couldn't even cut them and had a faint vinegar smell that my husband noticed first. The rest of it was okay but not up to their usual standards. Not sure what the problem was but I was very disappointed with the overall experienceMore

Ordered take-out at lunch time and was surprised that I was the only one in the restaurant. My first visit there and I was impressed with the decor. Very welcoming couple and the man chatted with me while I watched tv while I waited. Food...was cooked fresh and there was enough for a second meal the next day. Two of us ate for $20. Very good value.More

Went with friends before Christmas for a sit down dinner and kept an open mind as they said the food was always amazing. We have yet to find a Chinese spot in town that we would ever go back to...maybe our expectations are too high...plus...I LOVE good Chinese food but she is impartial. Unfortunately we won't be revisiting this strange little diner any time soon...even our friends seemed disappointed on this outing. The lemon chicken was unrecognizable and came without lemon sauce. The egg foo young was also unusual (my favorite dish) and the gravy inedible. The rice was hard as a rock, and other dishes were hard to describe. We ordered quite a few dishes yet the servings were small...won't get an extra take home meal from this place. Will stick to take out from Peterborough from now on...apologies to our friends if they read this but something had to be said!! To each his own I guess...Beware...More

This Chinese Food restaurant had been recommended to us by a friend for a long time, but we finally made it here for our anniversary dinner. We were pleasantly surprised. The food was very good, and the waiter was, may I say, adorable. Don't go...here if you are looking for a quick meal, because the elderly folk that work here are on their own schedule, but we could appreciate that because they were very pleasant and we were not in a hurry. This restaurant is a little like walking into a 50's diner with an Asian twist. It reminded me of the Chinese Food places I went to as a teenager in Bowmanville and Oshawa. We will be back. The portions were so large that we hadn't a second meal the next day at home with the leftovers.More

This little restaurant on Hwy #36 just north of Queen Street is the oldest Chinese Restaurant inTown as far as I am award. Doug and his wife do a tremendous job with good food and reasonable pricing. Not very fancy, but great stop for sure.
