Been to kibou a couple of times for lunch now and we've always had a lovely meal with good service. Plenty to eat if you're not mad on sushi (although my partner loves it and says it's delicious here!). We'll be back again soon

Glad to hear that you have enjoyed some of the other dishes we offer aside from sushi; we are called KIBOUsushi but actually, half our menu is hot food, as you have kindly pointed out. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Kindest regards

Hi there, sorry that you couldn't find us; it's not very obvious I'm afraid; we are located in the basement under the chemist called BADHAMS opposite the back of CAVENDISH HOUSE. Hopefully see you soon, KIBOUsushi
