Dinners come with a coterie of miso soup, house salad and steamed rice, as well as a teppanyaki appetizer and fresh veggies. Noodle entrees include beef udon pasta—beef marinated Korean-style and studded with vegetables atop udon noodles ($10.95)—and the sashimi salad's assortment of raw fish reclines beneath mixed greens, sliced daikon, and a sesame-soil vinaigrette. Sushi plates come loaded with as many masterfully crafted cylinders as a muscle car's engine, and dishes of green-tea and red-bean ice cream ($3.50) finish meals with a Japanese touch of sweetness.
Although Hon Machi Sushi & Teppanyaki offers discounts online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

In their wake, hot Japanese entrees such as chicken yakisoba and pork katsu emanate savory scents from Teppanyaki tables. In addition to captaining sushi boats, the staff gives specific driving directions to sushi and noodles, which show up at homes, parties, and corporate events.
