Came in for an early dinner at Gorilla last Sunday. The menu has changed since last time I went in and has some nice vegan options as well as some easily adaptable ones too. Quick service too, despite being relatively busy.

As soon as we walked into the restaurant we were greeted so warmly. We both ordered the Eggs Benidict, which was delicious and I also ordered Hummus as a starter which was scrummy. We can't wait to return for a meal before the Kiefer Sutherland...More

Called in here when Liam Gallagher was playing at the Ritz. Courteeners and Ricky Hatton were enjoying a few drinks. Had a halloumi and pepper kebab. Very tasty. Really friendly staff who found me a booth even though it was packed.

No there is no official dress code for Gorilla. However there is a smart/casual vibe in there so you may not feel very comfortable in your slacks..
