KIBOU Japanese restaurant and bar in Cambridge is a chic new addition to the city, and the perfect spot to enjoy a leisurely lunch or dinner.
Located at 7a Jesus Lane, home to the Pitt Club, and formerly Pizza Express, the venue features eye-catching murals and digital animations, alongside stunning Japanese floral and foliage installations.
Light and airy, The Mirror Room centres around a large Japanese cherry blossom tree, whilst the seductive Oak Room focuses on a large wisteria tree set against a backdrop of plush fabrics and artwork.
There’s also a relaxed cocktail lounge and dining area, featuring an open sushi and hot kitchen, and a standalone spirits and cocktail bar.
The menu has all your favourite dishes from Japan, including steaming bowls of ramen, a selection of bao buns, crisp tempura and handmade spiced pork gyoza, plus work of art sushi and sashimi sharing platters, seasonal specials and A5 Grade Japanese wagyu.
Their Japanese-inspired afternoon tea is a must try too!

    Orientalist decor-> food is either innovative Japanese fusion or wild Western fantasy. Hits and misses. Fish is fresh. Would recommend sashimi. Tataki is very thin. Skip that. Chicken teriyaki tastes like yakitori but fine. Kabocha korkke is nice, but dynamite prawns have too much mayo. The fourth star is completely thanks to the hojicha creme brûlée.

    Wonderful friendly and efficient service. Beautiful setting and gorgeous food. Will definitely be back. Didn’t particularly like the music. Did not go at all with the setting. It was annoyingly distracting. Seems an odd choice.
