“Light clean tempura”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

The taste-bud highlight of our annual visit to Kibo has got to be the Vegetable Tempura: lightly battered, nice variety of vegetables, clean oil makes for a delicious taste. The miso soup also gets high marks for a full taste that is not overly salty. We do however miss the soft bamboo green walls that inspired us to paint some walls in our own home the same colour.

“Small place with pleasant surprises”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

My work requires me to drive a lot, and Hope is where I usually spend the night. One night i was just walking around town, and found a small restaurant called Kibo. It's at the end of the town which made it really hard to find. But anyway, I went in there for lunch, where i had seafood tempura and california roll. Surprisingly the food was excellent, and the customer service was great. It seemed like she was the owner. Anyway, it's definitely a place to come back to.

“chicken teriyaki and california roll”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

Ive retired in Hope for the Peaceful atmosphere and gorgeous scenery all around with some lovely little restaurants that work so hard to do well in a difficult setting due to a sparce population who go out much. I go to Kibos for their lovely, fresh sushi and teriyaki..I dont eat red meat so I just get the seafood/california rolls..very tastefully decorated and lovely soft Korean music mix..love the atmosphere and Lisa is a delightful woman who is always smiling and kind.
