I don't post reviews often, but I felt thay I just had to share my wonderful experiences here.Firstly, the customer service has always been excellent. Ryan especially is very welcoming and remembered me from just 1 visit. This is my 3rd visit and the food has been consistently fresh and tasty. I recommend getting the shoyu salmon bowl ( it's just like the spicy salmon poke bowl but with shoyu salmon instead). The fillings chosen go well with each other. It might not look like a lot but I'm always full after finishing the bowl.The only thing is it's a little pricey. I will definitely come back often for a little pick me up after a long day at work.

I ordered the spicy salmon bowl off of ritual and I was pleasantly surprised by how good the place was. The atmosphere of Pokito is bright and inviting, and while I had limited interaction with the people there, it was pleasant. I really enjoyed the poke bowl though it was not as spicy as I expected and the garlic brown rice was a little too chewy for my taste. I really liked that they included imitation crab in the bowl as well as a large amount of seaweed salad. By contrast, I felt like there wasn't as much salmon in the bowl. Overall, it was a pleasant experience. More...

YELP TIP: check-in for 20% off your first order. I first had their Poké Ball Snack. For only ~$5 I was surprised at the amount of ingredients you get. ..from the crab meat infused sushi rice to the generous spicy salmon filling! I loved the self-serve toppings corner where you can really step it up. My favs were the toasted coconut, fried onions & roasted sesame seeds.I came back to try their Spicy Salmon Poke Bowl and it was pretty decent! Portions and the variety of ingredients were nice.

Can't go wrong with $1 poké (ritual special)! I tried Pokito's spicy salmon bowl (added avocado for $1.50 extra) and found the ingredients to be an interesting combination - seaweed salad, carrots, cucumber, and wood ear mushroom. I've never had wood ear mushroom in poké before and honestly wasn't a huge fan. They were quite generous with the portions and the salmon tasted fresh and nicely marinated with some creamy spicy sauce. I really like how you can add your own garnishes like sesame seeds, pickled ginger, fried onions, etc. They also have daily specials and I'll definitely be back to try their 420 bowl. More...

I've eaten here a number of times for poke bowls. Great for dropping in and grabbing takeout. The biodegradable containers keep getting rice stuck to them, but they line the rest of the container with lettuce which helps with the fish etc. from sticking.

was craving sushi and stopped at Pokito for their sushi bowls. I came on a Friday and they had a deal for the wasabi salmon for $11. 99 and being my first time here I decided to test it out ! the employee inside was very friendly and nice and let me know that the wasabi did not have the spiceness that wasabi usually had but it had the flavour. there was a choice for the base being sushi rice, salad and garlic brown rice. I chose to get sushi rice to start off as a basic. it came to $13 with tax and they made it very quickly.in the wasabi salmon bowl it included the sliced mushroom, Seaweed salad, Carrots, flavoured cucumbers, rice and of course salmon! at the side there is a seasoning topping side and I chose to add some sesame seeds and crispy onions. I found that the poke bowl was a perfect ratio of salmon, additional toppings and rice. the wasabi sauce was flavourful and light and I loved it with the other toppings. the salmon was also soft and buttery showing that it was high quality. I would come here again if I want a good meal and I'm willing to spend a little extra! More...

Pokito is a Poke bowl place on Queen Street that opened here a few years ago. While I've been here a number of times, it took me a while to warm up to this place because their prices initially put me off. After several visits, I felt more and more that it was worth it. Their Poke tastes so fresh and their portions of protein are great. They have everything added in their reportoire for what makes a great tasting Hawaiian poke, especially adding furikake to their rice which no other places do.What actually ended up sealing the deal for me was their recently introduced Hawaiian hot plates. Hawaiian comfort food is so rare outside Hawaii; there's literally no places that serve these dishes in Toronto until Pokito picked them up. Pokito does it really well too; the sweet and savoriness of their Kalua pork was on point, and the slightly crispy texture of the pulled and roasted pork was to die for.Their fresh, flavourful food aside, there's one other thing that sticks out about Pokito, and it's definitely their garnish bar. After ordering your food, you can put as many toppings and as much as you want of any of the garnishes onto your poke. They have anything from togarashi powder (highly recommend), to coconut flakes, fried onions, pickled ginger and even jalapeno peppers; all these can add a ton of crunch and flavour to your lunch.All of Pokito's varied options are delicious, and I can wholeheartedly recommend Pokito as one of my favourite places for eats on Queen Street!

If you're a fan of poke bowls this is the spot for you. I've been to multiple poke bowl vendors around Toronto and nothing comes close this.

Great little poke shop on Queen St., perfect for stopping in for a bite while shopping! The store is bright, clean, and very welcoming. The staff are very friendly and knowledgable, which is great because you can create custom bowls and they're happy to help you with your choices.My friend had the 420 bowl, and she loved it. I had the cajun shrimp sushi burrito. The flavours were bold, with just a hint of spice and so delicious. The burrito was so packed that it started falling apart after my first bite. I don't mind that, but be prepared for a bit of mess. There are also some toppings at the counter for you to add free of charge after they make your order too. They also have a daily special, so make sure to check that out when you go in. More...

Just been there one time, but the experience was nice and I'll be willing to return. I had the 420 bowl, the fish is fresh and cut into big pieces, which I like since you can really taste the fish. The mix of ingredient is nicely done, the choice of garlic brown rice is a good option which I've never seen before, and the extra free toppings is a nice finishing touch. Price-wise, it's in the range of every other poke bowls in the city, so it is acceptable to me. And like many places, you can custom your bowl, which is never a bad thing.Another good point is the number of seats. It is not huge but there is a nice number of seats, which is not always the case.All in all, very satisfied by this Poke experience! More...

Was looking to try a poke bowl or sushi burrito store for forever when I stumbled across this little gem on Queen St W. The best part of this shop is that everything is customizable. They have clear instructions on how many types of ingredients you can add to your meal, and additional add-ins are available for reasonable prices. Employees were really friendly and knowledgable! They have daily specials which I highly recommend as the price difference is vast! I got the 4/20 bowl which is tuna and salmon and WOW IT WAS AN AMAZING MEAL! Dying to go here again and I recommend this play for all! More...

This is my go to place if I am craving a poke bowl. It has great daily specials and I usually get the creamy spicy salmon poke bowl. I like how they give you an option for your base like sushi rice, brown rice, and more and you can do half-half if you want. I usually like the pokito style (where you let them add the ingredients) instead of choosing the extra toppings yourself.After waiting for a little bit, my order was ready. The poke was serve in a clear bowl and all the ingredients look fresh. After mixing it, it looks great and very appetizing. Overall, great poke place in Toronto.The only thing is the price point is pretty high for a bowl size but the daily special price makes up for it.The decor and interior is pretty modern and they have free wifi which is an added bonus.

Overall I'm a fan of Pokito. I've been to Hawaii many times and loveee poke so the whole 'build your bowl' movement is a little weird to me (it's not a sub! ). Anyway, the flavours here are good and you have a ton of options. Literally took me 10 minutes to order because there are a bajillion options with every bowl. The price is reasonable and the goods (fish/topping) to filler (rice/salad) ratio is good! More...

WHAT TO TRY Their poke bowls!! Feeling like a salad is boring and want something more fresh? Consider a poke bowl. I love the chopped raw salmon salad bowl and you get to mix it with toppings of your choice. I like my bowl to have fish roe, edamame beans, seaweed, corn and some veggies. Mmmmm so delicious. I thought the ingredients were very fresh and they were efficient with their service. LAST TIP Be adventurous and try different toppings or toppings you haven't tried before!! No matter what topping you put in your bowl, it generally is very good. :) More...
