Food Review: New Day, New Poké Honi Pokē 4

London's love of a Hawaiian raw fish dish shows no sign of slowing down… Honi Poké is a counter service joint, offering signature mixes based on salmon, tuna, octopus or tofu, or build-your-own bowls. Served cold, their bowls have the same food-you-crave-in-summer vibes as barbecue or ceviche, combined with the speed and DIY-ability of a burrito bar. The mix of salty mango with chilli and chunks of raw salmon is as compelling as it is weird. Throw in some kimchi and it's sweet, salty, singing with vinegar and refreshing in one swoop. Prices start at £7.90 for a fish poké — so on the high side for your daily lunch. But the speed it's served up with and the fact it's actually filling makes this a great pre-theatre option. A fast food that's genuinely fast, surprisingly satisfying and even feels like it might be good for you? Sold. Honi Pokē, 82 Dean Street, W1D 3SP. Open Monday to Saturday, 11.30am to 7.30pm
