Fresh sashimi, rich in flavor. Its kind of shameful we had to have sushi after visiting the Aquarium... Cruel, but OH so fitting. Fresher fish would have a pulse. The miso was toooo salty with no briny flavor, but the rolls had perfectly moist rice. A bit "sloppy" in the rolling, but very tasty. Place is open and spacious, clean.... More

My husband and I have been fans of Gekko Sushi ever since they opened a few years ago. The quality of the sushi is good for the price. Our favorite appetizers are the calamari salad and the spicy tuna bowl - both are good-sized portions to share. Parking is somewhat limited (the restaurant is on the ground floor of a... More

Gekko sushi is conveniently located at the corner of North Ave & Glen Iris in Poncey Highlands. It's small space boasts incredible charm. With friendly staff & wonderful sushi selections, you can be happy you dined here. The fish is fresh & the creative rolls are delicious. My favorites are the Candy roll & Kiwi roll.

Food was fantastic and fresh, but the lack of customer service not so much. Waiter was nice but beyond distracted. Not sure why, since it's just two customers here, including myself. Perhaps take out orders take precedence. But I waited 8 min for a glass of water, another 10 for one roll, and another 9 for my bill. It just... More

Gekko used to be my favorite sushi spot, but it has gone downhill since new owners took over. Instead of focusing on good sushi, they have moved to a mix of Chinese food with some sushi. The sushi quality has gone down, and the service is very slow.

Located this through Scout Mob as an impromptu lunch. It was a good value. Service was good. Food was above average. Would stop here again, if in the neighborhood.

I've been to gekko over 10 times. This places is always great! Service is really good, they always have some discount, and the food is excellent! Try the Boston roll or the Gekko sooo good!
