To the greeter, tell me what the specials and soup are when you sit me down.There's only one board and I can't see it from the booths. Don't make me wait until a server comes to take my order. Serving staff were pleasant and efficient, but our table was sticky. Please wipe it down more thoroughly. The same questions being... More

As a proud connoisseur of chicken burgers I am very content with a good £4 chicken burger meal but this was mind blowing. I was initially concerned about that amount of varied salad that accompanied the chicken and bun but it didn't not overwhelm. If anything it added a subtle flavour and texture to the bite. The buttermilk chicken breast... More

I go to gorilla for breakfast whenever I am in Manchester. It has a trendy upbeat vibe and the food and service are fantastic! Whether eating with my husband, taking in my kids and even the dog you are made to feel welcome.

We haven't been for Sunday lunch in quite a while, but this used to be one of our favorite places. We arrived early, around noon, and had to wait for a table as we hadn't reserved, we took this to be a good sign that it was still popular. We waited 30mins and were seated at our table. Sadly only... More

This is the 2nd time we have been to a show at Gorilla and this was miles better. We saw Johnny Vegas when the venue was seated and it was really cramped. Last Friday saw Julian Cope and it was excellent. Even though it was sold out it never felt cramped inside, you could right up to the stage with... More

I breakfasted here whilst staying for the weekend in Manchester and I'm glad I did. The full English was delicious and they also serve tea in mugs rather than piddly little cups which was good. I tried the waffle with bacon, blueberries and maple syrup too. It was so good I could have bathed in it. Service was really good.... More

Lunch here was good, lots of options and would recommend for lunch- lamb burger would be a good option. The service was slow despite us pre-ordering.
