Kibou: Contemporary Japanese Food & Drink

Award-winning KIBOU Cheltenham was one of the first Japanese restaurants in the Cotswolds and still remains a firm favourite in Cheltenham. We started life as a small basement restaurant on Regent Street, and our reputation and the number of happy customers returning to enjoy our great food and atmosphere soon grew. So, in 2020 we moved to new, larger premises, and from there our adventure to bring KIBOU to a wider audience began.

Step into KIBOU Cheltenham and feel whisked away to the eclectic streets of Tokyo. Dine under a network of ancient cherry blossom trees and soak up our colourful and vibrant take of Japan, with lavish murals and eye-catching Japanese projector animations. Discover our traditional horigotatsu sunken dining area, plush Japanese block print booths, open sushi kitchen and large and stylish cocktail bar.

Or, for a more intimate occasion, head to our opulent private dining room, which seats up to 10 guests in suitably luxurious surroundings.

The Menu

Serving all your favourite handmade sushi and sashimi, the tastiest of ramen, katsu curry and crisp tempura, KIBOU is a must for any lover of Japanese food and drink.

Discover signatures sushi rolls, such as the Volcano Roll, and our much-loved sharing Ebi Stak – a Japanese version of prawn toast, or enjoy colourful sushi and sashimi sharing platters such as our Jo or Yasai Moriawase.

With an enviable back bar of premium Japanese whisky and gin, we’ve also extended our drinks offering to include a variety of bang on trend Japanese highballs and an extensive signature and classic cocktail list.
