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.

We really enjoyed our meal which was a full breakfast. We had booked our table the previous day, and that was ready for us with a reserved sign. Our hostess was a lovely and welcoming young lady, very pretty called Liv. We were offered water to drink while we chose from the menu, the food arrived hot and delicious. We were asked a couple of times if everything was ok, which it most definitely was. We had coffee before and after our meal, all in all everything was excellent, thank you Gorilla.

Fantastic experience as always. Booked for lunch as the start of a day of birthday celebrations around Manchester and couldn’t have chosen better. Party of 9 with every individual need catered for. Great vibe all round.

We both had Le Big Mac and it was great, really tasty, fresh and the bun was soft. For dessert we had the oreo smores and it was amazing. Oh my god. Would come back just for that.

The only reason I didn’t give 5 on service was we ordered starters and never got them. Our main came which was steak and we didn’t want to send this back due to effort from the chef. However other than this the service was very good.

Sunday roast was a bit slow to come out and maybe should be max £12 not 14. Service and the tune selection was fantastic though. Thanks!

Having previously been to Gorilla with a friend and thoroughly enjoyed the food and the ambience, I decided to bring my teenage grand-daughter for a pre theatre meal. She loved the menu, and the food certainly did not disappoint. The staff were attentive without being intrusive. All in all a huge success and she can't wait for her next visit!

After looking at the location of the restaurant I thought it Would be ideal to book for a pre show meal with my fiance.....how wrong was I....dirty seating....flies and then the dining experience....ordered starters and main course.....main course came out first......waitress...oh have you not had your starters....us....no we havnt had anything...waitress ok we’ll eat your mains and I will bring your starters out....us....okay then....main course average but the starters were overcooked and over seasoned......so for my other half’s birthday meal let’s iust say it was totally forgettable thank for....bill reduced so we didn’t pay for starters but then still the amount paid for the experience I would never pay again......
