Kibo Sushi House

Posted by Staff / Listed on December 2, 2012 / review policy

Kibo Sushi HouseKibo Sushi House is a new and rather eclectic sushi restaurant located in the Cabbagetown area. With a mixture of chandeliers and small Japanese trinkets, the ambience here is definitely unlike your typical Japanese restaurant. For a change from the ordinary, try their spicy cabbage roll, a delightful concoction of spicy cabbage pieces mixed with tempura batter in a small sushi roll.

I was really impressed by both the interior/atmosphere of the place as well as the sushi. Although the waitress was a touch inept (forgot plates and napkins), this did not hinder the overall experience. The rolls here were complex, innovative and fun to eat. Other dishes that stood out were the Salmon Rose and the Tataki - both excellent, melt-in-your-mouth, "I'll have what she's having" response eliciting appetizers. Instead of our standard sushi restaurant order of vegetable tempura we opted for the calamari - although it was perfectly alright, it veered on the side of pub food and wasn't a memorable part of the meal. Overall, will definitely return! A great neighbourhood spot.

This restaurant is a poor excuse for Japanese cuisine. Hastily converted from a previous restaurant, KIBO seems to think that it's cute to have glass chandeliers in a sushi establishment.

The food (I ordered the lunch Bento box)was mediocre.

The miso soup had very little tofu in it, and had chopped up raw button mushrooms scattered on top :(

The salad was okay, but the dressing was too sour.

Tempura was good but there was a little too much batter on the pieces.

Sushi (dragon roll) was okay, but the rice was not seasoned enough.

Customer Service:
Waitress seated me then took my order. She then proceeded to text on her personal cellphone and take calls on it all the while speaking Korean.

I have worked in retail and at every job, it was unacceptable to be seen using your cellphone while on duty. Yes, there were only three customers in the place at the time, but still...

If you want good sushi, go to Sakura at the Westin Prince or Nami on Adelaide.

Mayne I am too picky because I have eaten real sushi in Japan so everything else pales in comparison.
