This place is definitely not worth the many bucks they charge. The service and the food is poor. 3 out of 4 plates we really did not like (salat tasted of salt, the salt should have been added to the chicken that missed all spices)....More

Great fresh produce, nice Greek wine. Orders took forever, around 30minutes to an HOUR after ordering. The staff were fine, plenty nice but clearly overworked. The food was not representative of amazing Greek food and it was very expensive for what we ordered.

The lamb souvlaki was very good. Good choice of Greek food, cocktails & fine Greek wines. Really good sized portions. Lovely would recommend

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho

Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene –

enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's

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 Kingly Court.
