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.

Pre-booked my table and when arrived - a chair was missing. Food was delicious apart from one of the portions contained under cooked potatoe. We were nearly forced to order and leave quickly, even when we asked for the dessert menu we were given the bill ... Generally - disappointed.

The food was overpriced and we felt rushed by the staff to make our order, eat, pay and leave - no time to relax or chat. A thoroughly unenjoyable meal.

The food was great. As was the service - it was friendly and interactive. This place was recommended to me by a friend - I'm glad I went.

It felt a bit too expensive for what it is. That was my only issue with it.

Lovely service, cute place. We had a groupon voucher so obviously we paid less, however I would still expect normal service as then I’d be more likely to come back and recommend. Some dishes described on the menu arrived without a few of the items in the description and we weren’t given any warning. For example instead of pita bread with all the dips, we received very cheap sliced bread(probably left overs from the day) which made us not being able to enjoy the dips and having to leave half of it. I wouldn’t expect to receive bread like that in any restaurant, let alone a greek and think that I wouldn’t cost you much more to supply all your customers with decent bread. For me that’s an important part of the meal. I was happy to pay what I payed but would have been very dissapointed if I’d had paid full price.

Over priced salad and pasta, but everything was so expensive for what it seemed. Service and atmosphere non existent. Won't be returning again. The sister restaurant in Goodge street was my first experience and I expected the same atmosphere, the food, the staff to be the same but very disappointed at this restaurant. Need to learn from that restaurant to make it better. Need massive improvements all around.

A small restaurant with great flavoursome dishes. Very busy between 6-8pm, so book! A couple of dishes were not available anymore, which is a pity. Dishes are colourful, flavoursome and cheese lovers will enjoy it!

I recently had dinner here with my partner again, after having discovered this restaurant a few months ago. The first time round we loved the food, especially the grilled octopus starter, and returned with positive expectations in mind. Unfortunatley, this time round the food was sub-par. The flavours were not as bold and the ingredients not as fresh. We communicated this with our waitress who took our feedback on board. On the point of service, our waitress was attentive and friendly, despite the busy environment. A redeeming feature was the wine selection which both my partner and I enjoyed. On the whole, this visit did not leave us with the same desire and excitement to return as we previously experienced.

Absolutely loved everything about the food, the service and the look of the place. However, the atmosphere gets 3 stars because the restaurant was incredibly cold and it felt like being outside. We had our jackets and scarves on most of the time. Might want to consider more heating!

Impecicable service! We where running over an hour late and even though they where extremely busy they kept the table for us! We both had the Tiger Prawn Saganaki to start with and it was so comforting it made me feel like I was in a traditional Greek Mama's kitchen being fed after a long day. The Chicken Giros was insanely good the tzatziki was on point and the chicken literally melted in your mouth! We both will definetely be back and already highly recommended on other social media sites! The only reason I am not giving 5 *'s for food & drink is because unfortunately i don't drink wine and they had no beers available!

Would not recommend as I had to cancel my booking on the day as the eatery phoned me to say they had a special wine tasting and wanted to charge me £40 per person. what a rip off.

Food was pleasant but we were totally ignored , left in the corner not asked once if we wanted another drink , plates taken away after main , no one asked if we wanted another drink which we definitely would have had, coffee or dessert , which again we would have had . Sat for 40 minutes then asked for bill and waitress decided to clean a table first and then proceeded to dry cutlery and ignore request for bill! Should have been a pleasant catch up with a friend but lack of attention spoilt the experience

It was my first visit to LIFE GODDESS and I simply loved the venue! The staff were so helpful and the food was delicious. I have already told a number of friends about it, and I will try the branch at Kingly Court soon-est.

Our main meal was a 40 minute wait! Only when we complained to the manager who did apologise was the service speeded up. I’ve lived in Greece and the food was ok but mediocre. I feel annoyed that we paid the service charge that they added to the bill. If you want greek food go to the real Greek.

Excellent food - the Greek couple next to us said it was as good as being at home & I have to agree. Generous portions. STRONG cocktails! Friendly service, not rushed but there when needed.
