- Island Poke
Because paradise didn't happen overnight!
From the beaches of Hawaii, to the markets of London.. And Beyond!
Our founder, James Porter, first got a taste for poké after spending his childhood summers between the beaches of California and the tropical islands of Hawaii.
Noticing London’s lunch scene was lacking in fresh, healthy options packing both flavour and quality ingredients, James spotted a poké-sized gap in the market, quit his job at an art gallery and started selling bowls of his tropical island paradise at a street food market.
London went mad for it, and Island Poké was born with the first ever IP being opened in Soho’s Kingly Street in 2016.
Like the ripple effect of the surf, the infectious good vibes of Island Poké have spread across London (13 locations say what!) and in 2020 we opened our first restaurant in France.
It's now our mission to grow our ohana - family - even further across the world by delivering our fresh pacific flavours going beyond the bowl and creating unforgettable experiences.
Our planet won’t be around forever, which is why at Island Poké we’re big on sustainability and conscious living. From sea to shore we do our very best to ensure we’re being as responsible as we possibly can.
Free poké for lunch, ongoing training and development and legendary and lively staff parties all whilst being part of an energetic team in a fun, vibey environment..
That's like a holiday to Hawaii in itself right!?
