Life was a Japanese restaurant/bar/shop/takeaway on Old Street. According to Google Street View, it closed down by mid-2016.

A very trendy Japanese restaurant/bar/shop/takeaway on Old Street. The decor and music are certainly very eclectic. The window displays using Star Wars figures were quite fun.

bob and Adam visited in September 2007. The food was very good and well presented. The £20 Life Lunch special included a large starter, miso soup, tempura, sashimi, sushi, and a dessert. The quality of the fish was very good. The rice in the sushi fell apart quite easily.

Adam's ginger pork looked very nice.

They have a lunch menu and a main menu. The main menu was scary, in terms of both prices and choice.

The drinks were quite pricey; jasmine tea was £2.50, and a large white wine was about £5.

The (unisex) toilets are downstairs, but there is a stairlift down to them. No disabled toilet though, and the cubicles are quite small, so that may be a moot point.

There is a shop downstairs selling bizarre Japanese tat.
