Poke Guys is located in the heart of downtown just behind Nathan Philips square.  It is a place where you can have Hawaiian dishes called poke bowls that includes sashimi, rice, veggies, and more. You can choose from the standards bowls or be creative and make your own bowl!

Poke Guys’ entrance has a threshold of one inch which I could manage because I have power scooter but someone in a manual chair may need help up. The front door measures 34 inches wide, but there is no accessible door opener. The front of the restaurant features a large enough space to park and maneuver mobility devices. The flooring has smooth non slip tiles throughout the restaurant with no thresholds or changes in texture.

The eating space is open concept and has large windows that provide natural light.  Soft music plays in the background.  There are standard height tables with removable chairs on both sides.  The service counter area where you order your food is at a height of 34 inches and the menus on the wall is visible to order.  Staff are also very happy to help you with ordering as they are asked often to explain what Poke is! The menu is also accessible online where there is a great step by step of options that you can choose from.

Access to the accessible restroom is at the back of the restaurant which you need to maneuver past the vending machine and go through the hallway which is a bit narrow (29" wide) but I made it through with my long power scooter. The accessible private restroom was very large and has both a lever handle and an automatic door opener to enter (the opener was a bit slow in opening and closing when we visited ). The manual flush toilet has one grab bar on the side at 30” high and another grab bar behind the toilet at 34” high.  The toilet paper dispenser is at an awkward location to the far left of the toilet.  The sink was 29” high with level handles to turn on and off the water. There is a manual soap dispenser and paper towel hand dryer beside the sink which might be a bit high but again I managed.

Poke Guys’ closest accessible subway station is Dundas (at Yonge St) which is about 3 blocks away from the venue; or the Bay bus (number 6) will drop you at Bay and Dundas.  The restaurant does have paid parking outside along the curb but there are no accessible spots. There is a Green P parking a block north on Elizabeth Street which does have accessible parking (by the arrivals of the greyhound bus station).
