Geta is Japanese food for folks on a tight budget. The restaurant itself is a postage stamp with about 4-5 small tables and a handful of seats at the sushi bar. It's typical to see a crowd of people hanging around outside waiting for a chance to be seated.
The menu has all the typical food of a Japanese restaurant but look around on the walls and you'll find plenty of adventurous specials. The owners of Geta opened B-dama up Piedmont ave which is better known for it's high prices and fancy dishes.
