About Gorilla - Manchester
Under the railway tracks on Whitworth Street West is GORILLA, a bar, kitchen, live venue and club space from the people behind Trof and The Deaf Institute.
Breakfast is served from 11.30am until 4pm. All other food is served from 11.30am until late. Choose from award winning royal breakfasts and Sunday roasts, chargrilled burgers and fancy sandwiches. There’s a grilled selection too; choices include steak on the rib, spatch-cocked chicken with lemon and fresh herbs, halloumi and chicken kebabs. And, like all of Trof’s venues, we're served by our own in-house bakery, which means that the sourdough, brioche and maple and pecan muffins couldn’t be any fresher.
On the drinks list, we have a full menu of cocktails and shakes, alongside the best in bottled and canned beers, fine wines and fair-trade coffees. And there’s a second bar to explore too.
Lovely cocktails and food for reasonable prices. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Trendy looking place. Good vibe. Live DJ playing some decent tunes. Tasty burgers. And it’s a very good live music venue too.
Most enjoyable meal and very good service.
Great food and friendly service
Truffle chips usually lovely but this time swimming in oil. Flat bread (which came with halloumi kebabs) was very chewy. Music a bit too loud.
Booked a table for one, I was going to the Home Theatre down the road. Very trendy inside but with a comfy atmosphere. Service was friendly and attentive and prices were quite reasonable. The food itself was outstanding, well made and great options. Overall an excellent find.
Great night-staff very attentive. Thank you
Fabulous food and cocktails, we love coming to Gorilla, the staff are always friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Special thanks to Max for looking after us and making sure we had a great night x
Good quality food and a great atmosphere.
As always a lovely meal at gorilla!! Staff are attentive, food delicious and atmosphere great- for a Wednesday night in rainy February it was buzzing.
Young waiter very helpful with menu decisions. Older man a bit rude asking if we wanted our change from the bill. Never been asked this before. Clearing glasses from the table asking if we wanted more drinks. When booked was told table was free till 7.30pm but at 6pm felt like he wanted us to vacate the table. If that’s the case just be polite and ask. Food lovely and fresh well done to kitchen staff.
Good music and atmos, not fine dining but good portions
Service was slow (we were told that it would be when we arrived) and like many (everyone?) we were on a deadline for a show. Maybe you could advise people in advance that they need to get in before 6:00 if they are attending a show or even better allow you to pre-order the food for a certain time (with a card deposit to cover if they don't make it)? Food was excellent and the staff very good and would I recommend the chicken burger. Just a little anxiety around the time we had to eat it.
Loved the haulumi burger And very friendly staff The decor was comfy and cosy and we will return when next in Manchester
Good food and friendly staff
Service was pretty slow even though the place didn't seem to be brimming with people. When the food came they had forgotten part of a friend's order, meaning she had to wait again.
We dined here for my son’s birthday and sampled the burgers which were fabulous! There is a lovely ambience about the place and the service was top notch too! The only thing that stops me from giving it five stars on the food is the lack of gluten free options on the menu. I would’ve loved to try the burgers but couldn’t for that reason. We will definitely go back again though.
Staff were really accommodating and friendly. The Bloody Marys were delicious as usual. Whenever my family come and visit they always want to come here for breakfast. I had to knock a point of for atmosphere as the leather seats in the booth must have been wiped down after a busy night and were still wet!
Always a great experience at Gorilla.
LOVE this place. The food is so good with excellent service. All the staff were really friendly and attentive so couldn't ask for anything more. Really nice casual and cosy atmosphere too. Already planning my next visit :)
The staff were really friendly and the food was so good! A big thank you for the discount as it was my birthday and was such a nice touch, really appreciate it 😊
Great food, atmosphere and service. Good value.
