Bringing a slice of Tokyo chic to Jericho, KIBOU Oxford, located on 11-12 Little Clarendon Street, is a beautifully restored Victorian venue transformed into a colourful and atmospheric Japanese-inspired bar and restaurant. Featuring KIBOU’s trademark Japanese-inspired murals and digital animations, alongside Japanese floral and foliage installations and traditional Japanese block print textiles, the restaurant oozes charm with the warmest of welcomes.

Discover the many eating and drinking zones across the venue, from the light and airy conservatory with cosy booth seating, atmospheric dining room with views to the open sushi kitchen, and relaxed cocktail lounge with steel-topped cocktail and spirits bar.

There’s also a lush and leafy Japanese-inspired garden, with seating for 40 guests, along with some eye-catching wall art and dramatic uplighting. And for those looking for something a little more secluded, then the exotic private dining room is sure to fit the bill.

The menus at KIBOU Oxford centres 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.

Vegetarian and vegan option are available, along with a broad range of gluten-free dishes. The restaurant also serves a delicious kids menu, which doubles up as a fun piece of origami, plus will be launching a Japanese-inspired afternoon tea very soon.
