    We chose the restaurant online. The restaurant was very quaint. We were seated quickly but them felt we were forgotten about as waited ages for anyone to even come & take our drink order. We then called a waiter over to ask about wines. He dealt with us, got our wine but didn't take our food order. He then came back some time later to take our menus & we had to tell him we hadn't ordered food yet! He took our order. We then waited quite some time for just hummus & pitta bread. Whilst we were still eating our starter the waitress came out with the moussaka meal, only one of our two meals. We said sorry we're still eating our starter as only just got it. She took the meal away with a quite rude attitude. We finished our starter, the plates were just left on the table. They brought the main courses out & tried to put them on the table while we had to hold our starter plates, they told us to keep our cutlery! My friend asked for another fork. My Moussaka was lukewarm, prob reheated

    This was a disappointing find. Not good Greek dishes and rather expensive for what it was. Could not add any tip to the bill by card and we had no cash so no tip given. Service was fine but would not recommend.

    I've been a regular visitor over the years, and it was another great experience at the Life Goddess. The sausage starter was very tasty, and the giouvetsi main was also good. One of my friends had the special - aubergine and minced beef which he really enjoyed. Portions were of a good size also.

    So pleased we found this lovely restaurant. We went because it offered my favourite Greek dish - but sadly they'd run out by the time we arrived late on in the evening. Seeing my disappointment they made it specially for me. It was gorgeous and well worth the extra wait. Kind and attentive staff and great ambience for a romantic evening with my husband. Lovely!

    I have been coming to Store Street's Greek Goddess for many years and it just gets better and better. The best Taramasalata ever!

    Lovely waiters who are attentive but leave you alone if you don't need them, excellent food and good value for money - plus little extra dishes 'on the house'!

    I’ve been here once before and it was a very different experience. The food tasted much better full of flavor and fresh, the service was spot on attentive and very friendly. This time it was like eating nothing no flavor at all very bland and it felt like a completely different restaurant. Service was lackluster. I really enjoyed this place the first time I came and feel disappointed this time around.

    I'm a regular customer, and the Life Goddess never fails as the ideal place to bring friends and family. Wonderful food, attentive service and a reasonable price. Today my brother was taking me out for lunch. As always, I had the delicious roast chicken.

    I reside locally. This is first time I tried this restaurant. We had a glass of wine in wine bar next door. The ambience is lovely. Staff very attentive. Memu is very varied. Typically very authentic Greek cuisine. Only one criticism some chairs uncomfortable we were able to swap. It’s a lovely intimate relaxed environment. Really like thee or very homely. Wonderful location one of my favourite streets in the neighbour.

    This is a great find if you like proper, tasty home cooked Greek food. If you’re looking for your average high street kebab joint this isn’t it. Today there were six of us Greeks eating and not one of us was disappointed. From the pea, artichoke and tomato stew, to stuffed aubergine with cheese to roast chicken with potatoes in olive oil and lemon. Truly delicious. Great staff too who understand the menu and who are attentive and pleasant. I will certainly be coming back.

    Always great food and service. The baked feta in filo pastry with Greek honey drizzled over it is to die for…

    No service charge, which is great as tips can be eft for the servers. Great starters. The special I had, lamb with pasta wasn't great.

    We stopped for a quick dinner while visiting London for the Theatre. Gorgeous food, lovely staff, really authentic Greek cuisine and an AMAZING wine list. Would highly recommend.

    I'm a regular here, and there are some new dishes. The staff are lovely and it's a place to go for really tasty meal - I use it for both work lunches and socialising in the evenings. Right now they are serving the moussaka slightly differently to previously, and have introduced two fabulous Greek cheesecakes - the fig one is particularly special. For a restaurant in central London that's concentrating on good food rather than its social media presence or trendiness, and that isn't ridiculously expensive, the Store Street Life Goddess is reliable time and again.

    Very bizarre main course: lumps of bland lamb on top of a lemony risotto. Left me feeling quite gross.

    Dear Mr Henwood Thank you for your feedback. The dish you selected is a typical Cretan dish . We are sorry for your experience. We hope we can have you in restaurant again and propose you a different dish more of your liking. Best Regards The Life Goddess Store Street
