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

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.

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.
