This tiny place offers some of the most affordable and delicious sushi in the Bay Area. Their variety is quite amazing as well. I ordered 6 different sushi plates and i was pleased with every single one. Expect a wait because they are incredible and seating is limited. But good things come to those who wait!

I am an avid traveler, and this spot hits close to the great sushi spots I visit when I'm in Japan. Ask for the grilled octopus, it isn't always on the menu. The sashimi is great, service is quick and the beer is cold. It is super small inside, true to Japanese eateries. Write your name on the wait list... More

Friend took me here for lunch twice. First this is a small spot and you can't be afraid to share with others. If you get there just before noon you will get a table reasonably soon. The nigiri is fresh daily and full of flavor. Service is quick!

I've heard nothing but good things about this place from my friends. Going there myself, however, was an entirely different experience. For one thing, it's a tiny, tiny restaurant. Since my friend was parking the car, they wouldn't let us be seated, which I do understand due to the size of the restaurant. When she arrived they sat us right... More

Its going to have a line outside of the restaurant and its very very small. There is only one table for 5 people and the rest is a bar (only 4 people) and about four tables of 4 people. This place has great quality sushi for cheap. Since its cheap, they don't make anything pretty or nice. They just serve... More

Sushi and sashimi are consistently well above average. Good variety. Prices are among the lowest I've seen in the East Bay. That combination makes Geta unbeatable, in my opinion. Tiny place. No money wasted on decor. If you don't get there for dinner at, or right before, opening expect to stand outside. Service is okay. They are just so busy... More

Not much room to sit down here but the food is fantastic. A lot of people use take-out. The wait can be long. We tried the chef's sashimi selections as well as several rolls. All were excellent. The service was fast and friendly. Run by a Japanese family and frequented by many Japanese people. Fantastic selection too.

I know sushi. I lived in Japan for 8 years and travel there several times a year. Run of the mill sushi in Tokyo is about the same level as the best sushi you'll find in the US. So I am evaluating this as a US sushi restaurant. Pretty damn good. The place is a tiny hole in the wall.... More

Geta Sushi is located in what used to be a very small copy store. The kitchen is where the large duplicator USED to be, and the few tables are arranged around it. Don't let this discourage you though - or the lines stretching outside. This is some of the best sushi around, at some of the best prices. All the... More
