About Island Poke

Founder James Gould-Porter became bored of monotonous lunch choices whilst at work and spotted a gap in the market for a vibrant, fresh and healthy grab and go concept.

He started selling poké bowls across various street food markets in London and knew there was a customer demand for it. That’s what led to the opening of the first site in Kingly Street, Soho in 2016 and Island Poké was born

Now in full partnership with HERO Brands, Island Poké has 11 stores in some of the most prime locations in London

Our Food

In Hawaiian, Poke means “to slice & dice”, this has allowed and encouraged us to deliver all day offers to our customers with that Fresh Pacific Flavour.

Our bowls are customisable and can be delivered in 1 minute or less, meaning they’re perfect travel customers, wanting flavour packed Nutritious food to enjoy. Our Bowls also travel well.
