Reasonably priced Lincolnwood Japanese restaurant serving sushi and other artful fare.

Our Review

Though some find Renga Tei lacking in atmosphere, I thought the rooms were nicely appointed, with a clean, Japanese sense of design. The menu includes items not seen in most Japanese restaurants: sanma (mackerel pike), unusual noodle-dish ingredients like salmon roe, and even Calpico (the yogurt drink). Don't miss the dinner sets that are on the specials board as you enter the restaurant; they include side dishes like gomae (spinach with sesame dressing), sunomono (cucumber salad), and hiya yakko (a chilled tofu dish) along with a main entree. The miso soup is wonderful. Though not quite on par with Katsu, Renga Tei is excellent for the money.
