Greek
The Life Goddess (TLG), experimental divine, is a genuine cuisine project aiming to become a reference of new hellenic kitchen to the world. The cooking philosophy is based on a rustic tradition, so unrefined and simple that is deeply friendly and relaxing. It is the earthiness of the ingredients and the simplicity of the techniques that serve the cuisine peasant that characterize TLG identity. The plentiness of a food culture that includes a true feeling of completion is an experience we aim to create for every and each customer.

    I have no idea what I had for desert but it was delicious. A taste sensation and fantastic organic wine that was fruity and full flavoured. I will return here for dinner and would recommend to all looking for a tasty treat.

    I think this place has gone down! The food is not imaginative and it is quite expensive! Almost £10 for a bowl of chickpeas with a bit of pomegranate it is a bit too much! Service is good as the waiters are really nice but other than that there are now lots of greek restaurants to choose from in London! They really need to consider their offering and food!

    The meze was fantastic, and plenty for two to share as a starter without bread! The mains were good. The service however wasn't great. Their are only two unisex toilets - one which doesn't lock. And their large wine glass is 175ml... perhaps to keep the toilet wait time down.

    Nice restaurant, great food, good cocktails. Although at 6.30pm it was very quiet. It definately isn't a cheap meal, but the food was cooked perfectly and presented well.

    It was a lovely place to catch up with friends, enjoyed a few cocktails, starters were lovely vine leaves & octopus; mains of lamp chops, sea bass, truffle risotto and desserts were simply devine :)

    I believe the experiment is successful! I would never think that someone would try at the center of London to create a restaurant with the most fine tastes and ingredients from different parts of Greece representing traditional tastes with this success! By far the best greek restaurant in London using greek special ingredients in innovating- gourmet recipes.

    We dined here as a group of friends in February and had a really good evening. There were several Greek patrons in the restaurant, which we took as a good sign! Our group had the Goat, the moussaka, the special of the day and the vegetarian chickpea option - so we tasted a good selection of dishes across the menu. The mains were all excellent. We shared two desserts between the 4 of us, and whilst satisfactory, we didn't find them to be outstanding. We also had a Greek person in our midst who was particularly unimpressed by the desserts. Nonetheless, it was a fun evening, with good service and we will return.

    Went here for Sunday brunch, they have one of these confusing menus where they use odd terms like "Eggs benedict served Greek style" but then don't tell you what Greek style means. Service was good except twice we ordered something only to have the waitress come back and say sorry, it wasn't available. No Bloody Marys until 3pm for some odd reason, they were out o f sausage. When eggs benedict came it was simply poached eggs served over chunks of overdried bread with a flavorless feta sauce in place of bernaise. Not bad but nothing special.

    This restaurant was recommended by a friend who has a greek boyfriend so I really wanted to like it. I have spent several months in various parts of Greece - always with Greek people so I know good greek food when I taste it. Unfortunately, no matter how much I tried, I just couldn't. The starters first. The vine leaves and smoked aubergines and meze were acceptable - with the exception of the hummus or chickpea dip (we were not sure what it was) which was awful. We did not finish it. The mains next: The goat was decent. My rooster and pasta was the worst. The pasta was soggy, bland and the rooster had no flavour. I've eaten better airplane food. The greek salad was really basic - fast food chains like leon or your average brasserie can serve better salads. The moussaka was ok - just fatty without the richness and depth of flavour one expects from such a dish. I find it outrageous that an expensive plate of meze is not served with bread. We have to pay £2 (plus service charge) for a few pieces of bread. Also, the cheapest red wine starts at £33. I know that this is common practice in London. But given that even more expensive restaurants offer cheaper wines, I find it unacceptable. Especially given that it's Macedonian wine. The only good thing about this restaurant is the service - the waiters were very nice and we only accepted to pay the 12.5% service because it felt churlish to blame them for the kitchen's disaster.
