With an unrivaled salad bar (the tempura zucchini are a MUST) and reliably good food, this is a regular haunt for me. Some of my favourites include the Artisan Dip Platter and the breakfasts are fantastic.

Food is good but very expensive for what it is - Cafè type food. Had a steak for R140 with no sides included. I can have a steak with 2 sides at a steak house for the same price.

We visit Life Grand Cafe restaurant in Hyde Park Mall, Hyde Park, Johannesburg on a regular basis. The restaurant has excellent food choices, is great value for money and the service is always excellent. I can recommend the char-grilled chicken pasta, delicious, creamy amazing meal.

good food, excellent service, great prices. Seems to be similar experience to Tasha's at about 15-20% lower price... no compromise on quality... First time i went there - i will definitely go again...

The menu is more varied than it used to be, which is good, but the Hyde Park venue is noisy, the staff seemingly bored, and the food expensive for what it is. It used to be more special in Sandton City. Shame.

Life is a restaurant that always reminds you to eat and live healthy. When you walk out of there you feel well fed but not stuffed!!
