“good things come in small packages”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

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.

“Good Sushi At An Affordable Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

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 in 10-20 minutes.

They close between 2:30 and 5. Keep calling if the line is busy. And, don't plan to eat in if you are claustrophobic. Very small eating area.

“I would go back...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

...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 far two of the best rolls I've ever eaten. Highly recommend Geta!

“Fresh Sushi and Great Price!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

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 pronto as did our order. Plenty of tea, smiling friendly waitstaff. Everyone is Sushi Happy at Geta Sushi!

“Great sushi and better prices! Oh, this place is a Gem.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2011

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!
