Island Poke starts year with two restaurant openings in London

It also has plans to grow in Edinburgh in the next few years.

Island Poke kicked off the new year with two restaurant openings in London.

Last January 5, the poké operator opened stores in Wembley Park and Northcote Road in Battersea. The brand brought their £1 poké bowl day to the new venues.

Island Poké founder James Gould-Porter said: “It’s our mission to grow our ohana across London and beyond, bringing people a great and fresh alternative to the traditional lunch and dine-out offering.”

Island Poké is set to forge ahead with further growth plans in 2022 including plans for four new restaurants in Edinburgh over the next two years and a new partnership with dark-kitchen operators REEF. The brand currently has 18 outlets in London and nine in France.
