About Poke Row
At Poke Row, our focus is on fresh and healthy food, in a cozy, casual environment.
Whether you dine in or take away, you can expect the best. We prioritize local, natural and sustainable ingredients - all put together just the way you like!
The history of poke (pronounced poh-kay) dates back to the early Hawaiians. Poke simply means "to slice or cut" in Hawaiian. Long ago, fishermen seasoned the cut-offs of their daily catch to enjoy as a snack, maybe adding a little seaweed in the mix. Over time, poke evolved from a side dish or appetizer to the healthy main dish we enjoy today.
We are committed to quality food and a healthy community. Each month, a portion of our proceeds will benefit a different local charity. We believe that it is our responsibility and our honor to contribute to the organizations that make Central Oregon the best place to live and thrive.
Poke Row was founded by the passionate team behind Bend’s award-winning 5 Fusion and Sushi Bar. 5 Fusion owner Lilian Chu, Chef Tyler Shen and Justin Chu were all inspired by the rise of poke on the mainland, and saw an irresistible opportunity to bring a bit of authentic Hawaiian flavor to the High Desert. We look forward to seeing you at Poke Row!
