We're spending a night in Hope on our way home. We were so happy to find a reasonably priced restaurant with such delicious food. The upon soup and prawn Yaki might have been enough for a light meal. We added their specialty Kobe dragon roll, which made it a complete meal. Service was great, too. It felt like home-cooked even... More

This is a lovely Japanese restaurant in a relaxed setting. The food is delicious and modestly priced.

We joined our relatives for dinner and they took us to Kibo's. The food was awesome. Deep fried banana with ice cream and chocolate sauce was sooo good. Great place. Quaint and great service.

We feel we lucked out moving to Hope only to have this amazing gem in our hometown's backyard! Absolutely fantastic, authentic Japanese food; the sushi is to die for.

Kibo is is a modest little restaurant a few blocks from downtown, off Water Street behind the Red Roof Inn motel. It doesn't look like much from the outside but don't let that discourage you. The food and service were excellent and the price was reasonable. There aren't many tables and it filled up fast when I was there. Very... More

Definitely the best sushi in Hope!Take a detour from the main road and venture over to kibo, you will not regret visiting this quaint little restaurant. It will soon become your favourite place to go! Excellent service, fabulous food. The dragon roll is highly recommended!!

Stopped there for dinner the other night, being locals we expected it to be a little cheaper. Small portions. Got a glimpse of the kitchen and looked supper ratty. Overall food was great. Expected better though.

I came at the end of the day and maybe that had something to do with it. The owners are lovely but the food wasn't. I ordered Agedashi tofu and seafood miso. Agedashi was not crispy, the texture of the tofu was a little strange and the sauce had zero flavour for me. The miso soup was pretty good and... More

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.

Thank Dan G
