About The Life Goddess, experimental greek devine

In Greek tradition and culture cultivating, preparing and sharing food is a ritual. The journey of the senses starts from mother-earth and finishes at a feast on a table where all the family, friends and companions share the same nourishment and enjoy the sublime result of their efforts. For Greeks preparing a meal for someone is the ultimate token of respect, gratitude, friendship and love.Our philosophy is that good quality sustenance is the epitome of a healthy and happy life! At The Life Goddess we offer food that is grown in the ideal Greek climatic conditions: fruit and vegetables ripened under the abundant Greek sunlight, meat, fish and poultry grown by local cattle farmers and fishermen using traditional environment-friendly methods, superbly balanced, mouth-watering appetizers, salads, main courses and preserves in recipes that will simply blow your mind and arguably the best wines you ever tasted!The Life Goddess, greek experimental divine, our second project that opened in Kingly Court mid of September, encaptures a great effort to serve not only proper greek food but unique greek wines. The One Barrel project is a well executed idea that will offer 15 experimental wines in a total quantity of 300 bottles only, each time. Signature cocktails will be made and served exclusively for The Life Goddess, experimental.

We actually didn't have any dinner there. Our reservation wasn't registered. The staff was not helpful at all. We had to wait outside for 15 min with no one coming to let us know what was going on therefore left to find another place.

The meze starter to share was a meal in itself !!! All food very good and the premises are in a truly delightful and decorative courtyard. The groupon deal was very good indeed, you must give it a go!!

Certain aspects of the meal I felt were really authentic. The best of all was the service. Staff were very friendly and professional. I had a serious problem prior to come for the meal therefore I was late. Your staff were very sympathetic and helpful. Well done!!!

Our expeience in The Life Goddess was a complete disaster. We waited for the food 45minutes (only ordered one main) and when it arrived all of the plates were cold. We kindly asked them to heat up two of them and they took 10minutes to do so. Clearly the restaurant in Kingly Court is not as good as the other one as I never had any problems in the main one. Staff was rude and the place was 75% empty. Hence why we did not know why they took so long. Value for money is very poor as you expect plates to be quite big (£14 for a Moussaka) but it is not even filling. Would not be going there again.

We absolutely loved the Life Goddess - the food was phenomenal and the service was the best I've ever had anywhere (the perfect mix of attentive without overcrowding us). The only tiny slight negative was that the music was really loud for such a small space which made it hard for us to chat properly. We loved it there though and can't wait to be back.

Guys. I love the idea of experimental but to be honest - my opinion - it didn't work. The ribs starter were just fatty, the potatoes were nice, but the service was biased towards some Greek family dining at the time. They seemed to have the red carpet rolled out for them which made us feel unwelcome. Then the price. For what I got, which was very rushed, did not justify the cost of the meal. To top it all, the mandatory service charge was in my opinion not acceptable. It is my choice to pay for a service if provided. I'm. It in any way trying to be nasty, but I have been asked to give be an honest review so that's what I'm doing

Your Groupon offer is FAR too generous. How do you make any money on it? The food is some of the best Greek food I've had in the UK. And why do the waiters always make a point of telling you that you don't have to pay the service charge? Give yourselves more credit! Service should be added by default, on the WHOLE amount of the bill, not just the voucher amount. It's a brilliant restaurant and I have recommended it to a lot of people. Service has improved a lot over the 4 months I've been going there

Booked as it was a Saturday night and Carnaby gets so busy! Food was fine. I went for the seabass which was very nice but the carrots seemed to be under cooked. I thought the staff were ok but my guests told me that they were not attentive enough. The waitress kindly stood out side the loo after I released the lock was broken. Overall it was an okay night.
