We were really hungry and ordered two burgers which were tasty and the service was very polite and sweet. Although I think it was a bit expensive.

2nd time to Gorilla and forgot to review it first time around. Well situated just around the corner from Oxford Road Station and within a fifteen minute walk from Piccadilly Station and the Northern Quarter. It's situated opposite the Ritz so if you are clever you can go to see two gigs on the same night. Decent burgers and drinks.... More

We had a fantastic brunch - the Full English and Eggs Benedict, both superb - but the star was an amazingly good Bloody Mary. A keeper.

Went in before going to a show at the Palace. Literally across the road from the palace so it was ideal. Just left out of Oxford Road station. Good food, quick service. Ideal for a quick meal.

A large group of us visited here on a Saturday evening. The venue is funky with a good atmosphere. We sat on the mezzanine floor level over two tables. We pre ordered our meals two weeks prior as requested, and had an 8.30pm table booked so not necessarily peak food time. Unfortunately the meals took 1 hour and 10 minutes... More

Lunchtime get together with family. Every meal was a hit. Cool vibe, great servers and a glitter station!

Second time I've been to a gig here, it's one of my favourite venues. It's a good atmosphere and the sound is good. Only thing that let it down for the Alex Clare gig was the odd lighting. Other than that was a really good show and venue.

Popped in for a quick meal with a colleague. We received a warm welcome and were asked for our drink order. The cocktails were lovely and fresh and helped us to relax after a long drive. The food was really good too, I can recommend the tacos!! Really nice atmosphere to enjoy a few drinks and an informal meal.

Not knowing Manchester, we were recommended Gorilla for brunch by our airbnb hosts. It's got a very cool vibe and the staff are really lovely. My Oreo milkshake was the bomb. We both had full English breakfasts which weren't wow, but were what we needed. I wish I'd gone for eggs or something from the brunch menu as I got... More

We ate here before a gig, short wait despite us not having a reservation. We weren't looking forward to eating in the packed bar, but they opened a smaller quieter room which was lovely. Service was fantastic, not waiting too long for anything. The burgers were great and the fries are delicious, stand-out for us was the amazing milkshakes, they... More
