Kibou: Contemporary Japanese Food & Drink

We’re opening in Oxford this summer, and we couldn’t be more excited!

Bringing a slice of Tokyo chic to Jericho, new KIBOU Oxford, located on 11-12 Little Clarendon Street, will see this beautiful Victorian venue transformed into a colourful and atmospheric Japanese-inspired bar and restaurant. Expect to see our stunning murals and digital animations, alongside Japanese floral and foliage installations and traditional Japanese block print textiles, all fused together effortlessly with the many original features of this stunning period property.

There’ll be seating for 100 guests across a range of different eating and drinking zones, including a light and airy conservatory with cosy booth seating, feature neon lighting, an atmospheric dining room with views to the open sushi kitchen, and a relaxed cocktail lounge with steel-topped cocktail and spirits bar.

There will also be a lush and leafy Japanese-inspired garden, with seating for 40 guests, along with some eye-catching wall art and dramatic up lighting.

For those looking forward to something a little more secluded, then our exotic private dining room is sure to fit the bill, with space for up to 12 covers.

The Menu

The menu at KIBOU Oxford will centre on classic and contemporary Japanese sharing plates, beautifully presented ‘moriawase’ sushi and sashimi platters, A5 grade seared wagyu, and soulful bowls of steaming ramen.
Catering to all Japanese food lovers and those eager to try Japanese cuisine for the first time, KIBOU’s diverse menu also includes an extended vegan offering, Japanese classics, such as teriyaki and katsu curry, and an elegantly rich menu of Japanese-inspired desserts.
To complement the restaurant offering, KIBOU also features a standalone bar serving signature Japanese-inspired cocktails, no-and-low options, an ambitious selection of Japanese whisky, sake and umeshu, and Japanese-brewed beers.
