Based on reviews I expected more. I had the volcano ramen and it tastes like supermarket spicy ramen with some veggies thrown in. The Gyoza seemed freezer burnt. Terriyaki chicken was average at best. I haven't spent a lot of time in Hope so maybe my expectations are too high. Won't be back.

The service was friendly and quick! The food was so amazing! The food was delicious! It was very fresh. The owner even came out to make sure we enjoyed our meal, which was very sweet. We will definitely be returning. It is also peanut-free, which is a plus!

Kibo is a rare gem just tucked away at the north end of Hope...just off highway #1. Who would have thought that such a cute, clean restaurant existed in Hope.

This is a great little restaurant if you are looking for Japanese food. The food is excellent, and it feels like you are eating in someone's kitchen. Highly recommended!

Excellent Japanese food in a very small, repurposed house. A terrific find in a small town! Worth the visit... As good as most Japanese food in Vancouver we've had.

We have eaten here several times and really enjoyed it. It is run by a family and the food is typically Japanese. It is great!

Glad the other sushi place was closed on Sunday so we got to eat here. Split a boat among two couples. Reasonable for the amount of food. Fresh sushi served with a smile. If ever through here again will definitely stop back.
