“A taste of Hawaii in Portland”
Review of Big Fin Poke

Big Fin Poke
Ranked #6 of 72 Restaurants in Westbrook
Restaurant details
Reviewed 24 October 2017 via mobile

Stumbled across this restaurant when looking for something out of the tourist area in Portland. We first had poke in Hawaii a few years back and have been aficionados ever since. Big Fin has great sauces that taste just like the ones in Hawaii! Lots of choices of toppings, and add in's. Too bad we don't have a Big Fin in our state as we loved the food!

This is a real surprise. The restaurant is hard to spot, and it is not impressive inside. But the food is just wonderful. The regular bowl is a whole meal (don't bother with the large, as it just gives you a little more protein, but you will get plenty.) We have tried all of the fish selections and they are all terrific. The sauces are tasty and not too spicy. And the young folks that make up each bowl are helpful and friendly. We have already told some of our friends about this place and they all agree it is a find.

This place rocks! What an idea, sushi in a bowl! Pick your favorite items and sit down and enjoy! Fresh food, nice idea.

My daughter & I just tried this new place in downtown Westbrook. Big Fin is located on Maine street by Valle Square. There is easy off street parking along side and out back. The inside is about 2 floors high so the acoustics do not make for great conversation but it is open & very clean. We sat by the front window and watch the evening traffic.
I agree with an earlier reviewer who noted that the setup is like Subway. You stop at various sections to add what you like to your bowl after choosing your base of rice or greens and the various proteins offered. You are making their variation of a Chirashi bowl. The add-ons are really flavorful and do make the bowl taste great so don't be bashful--try them all if you what. We had a rice base and a greens base with 2 proteins for the regular bowl and 3 for the larger bowl. We both had the creamy wasabi sauce which was very flavorful & had a great hot after bite. The food was very fresh and tasty. We are definitely going to return soon.
