It's a very nice place with a varied menu and a huge selection of different deliciously dishes. It has an acceptable price and excellent quality. The only drawback is not very large room, and at the weekend in the evening you will have to wait a little longer. A popular place)

Nothing more need be said. This place is great and worth the wait. Be ready though it will be a long wait. They are very popular

We've been to Cha Cha Sushi too many times. This is my husband's favorite go-to restaurant. Sashimi is fresh and delicious and there are so many sushi rolls to choose. The only con is that they don't take reservation. So be there early or simply wait in patience.

Cha Cha Sushi has great Japanese food. I love their bento choices and the food is always deliciously prepared. This restaurant is on the small side and there's almost always a wait to get in but it is worth it. Have never ordered the sushi but I've seen other customers orders tons of sushi as their main course so it... More

Seated quickly. Waitress was very sweet. Miso soup and salad came quick. The roll was hot out of the oven. Huge too. A meal in itself. The sashimi was a good portion and so fresh. Can't wait to go back!

We live not far from this place, and have been visiting it for years. They never fail to deliver. The sushi is great and tasty, the variety is excellent and the service is quick and polite. This is our go-to place in San Jose if we want a good sushi. It is not a fancy restaurant, the quality of the... More

Yes, the restaurant is small. Yes, there is a long wait during peak times. Yes, the staff is not Disneyland-Friendly. But you will not find sushi like this anywhere else. The maguro is actually better than what I found in two trips to Japan and a month's immersion in the cuisine. The sushi sizes are huge, and the prices are... More

Truly one of the best places for sushi in San Jose. Always busy and they don't take reservations so get there early and avoid the weekends.

This is another great place for those who don't need hoity-toity to have a great time. I waited with my daughter around 30 minutes outside in a standing facing a grocery parking lot with dozens of other hungry customers smelling pizza that intensified our hunger pangs. Once inside, we were welcomed by its friendly staff wearing a variety of different... More

I must admit I do not like Sushi except California Rolls. When I go to Cha Cha I stick to beef short ribs and chicken teriaki. However, they always have a line out the door. Day or night there is at least a 45 minute wait. Although I don't like Sushi it looks like it is really worth the wait... More
