One thing that first surprised me about raw food is that it's incredibly filling. Gorilla Food has tons of great offerings, my favorite being the Pesto Pizza. If you can feel your body feeling a bit sluggish and need a nice boost I highly recommend grabbing one of the many smoothies and a meal item - and you will feel... More

I really enjoyed my meal here as it's always interesting to me to try new things. The prices were very inexpensive and there were lots of items on the menu I wish I could have had! I ended up having one of their sandwiches and their curry butternut squash bread was amazing! I also enjoyed some re-energizing fresh juice and... More

I loved the Olive Wrap and the Pesto Pizza. The Green Green Smoothie was delicious and not too sweet. Great place and nice ambiance. Will be back.

I stopped in Gorilla Food with my vegan sister while visiting Vancouver this summer . The basement location is funky and welcoming. We arrived just a few minutes before closing time and ordered takeout. Understandably since it was late in the day, the restaurant was out of some items, but we were able to find appealing substitutes. We were surprised... More

A nice friendly little lunch place. Lots of Vegan food on menu. We weren't so interested in the raw aspect....but we loved what we got. Even bought the cook book.

We came for lunch, the food was really tasty and the smoothies were pretty good too. We had the lasagne and the Main Street monkey sandwich, the flax bread is thin so impossible to eat without a knife and fork but the food was great tasting. It was pretty warm as it was in the basement but would definitely recommend... More

I was looking around vans for a good place to eat vegan and i found this place. The vibe in this small basement restaurant is amazing and the staff are super friendly. I ordered one of the veggie burgers with some flaxseed bread and some juice. They were out of juice so the chef gave me the remainder of it... More

My daughter who is a vegan took me to this nice place. I tried a Mini Gorilla salad and Pesto pizza, while my daughter picked Lasangna-nanda and some desserts that we shared. The food was light but so delicious! Definitely worth trying!

Tried the cocoa and hemp slice, and it was delicious! Cons: It was baffling that it took so long for us to get the food since it was preprepared and only required being moved from the display plate to the serving plate...

Staff was friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and healthy. There is cold water on hand. The only "disappointment" is that they haven't started offering their "ryce" bowls at this location.
