What a great find!! Found reviews online and went strictly because of all the great reviews. We got there a little after five on a Saturday and there was already a line of about 15 people. When they opened the door a couple minutes later we were lucky enough to get the last two seats at the bar. The food... More

The food here is excellent, not jus the sudhi, bu the bentos, teriyakis and tempuras. Be prepared for a wait though. At meal times there's aline down the street. The dining room is miniscule. This place would do well in a larger space. Beware that its closed on Sundays.

The more people rave about a place, the busier it becomes and this places already ALWAYS has a line outside it! But I simply had to write about it to compliment the place. First off, it is an absolute hole in the wall! I doubt it seats twenty people. Many suburban garages are bigger and you need to have the... More

The food in this tiny sushi house is outstanding, the service attentive, the prices very reasonable. The wait can be long as there are only 5 tables and 3 seats at the sushi bar, but the wait is worth it.

Geta is a faithful standby whenever I am in Oakland. You can get an order of imitation california rolls that are really good for less than $3.50 including tax. They are always crowded, but they do have a wait list for seating you can sign up for. I always phone in my order for pick up and its usually done... More

...if I lived in Oakland. In town for business and needed lunch but did not want any fast food so read reviews for a local eatery. The reviews of Geta do not exaggerate; the food is really really good. Only had time for a couple of rolls which were generous in size and full of fresh fish and ingredients. By... More

A very small place that my college age daughter discovered. Waiting in line is the norm. Sign in on the clip board on window outside and wait right there for your table. The sushi comes fast and furious. At these prices order more than usual! Fill up your tummy! We noticed the asparagus sushi after we ordered - it came... More

We love sushi and living in the Bay Area, there are lots of choice. We have recently started to go to Geta and my husband and I think it is the best sushi that we have had. Creative rolls at really good prices. This one is a winner!

LOVE this place. Rediculously cheap, especially for the quality. Being a foodie and having been to Japan, I am super picky about my Japanese and this is one of the only two places in the Bay Area that I'll eat sushi. Call ahead to place your order or get there early. Plan on waiting 30+ minutes if you arrive after... More
