A word from 8000 Miles
Traveling 8000 miles together from the city of Chongqing in China, our two chef partners and our operating partner developed plans years ago to open a Chinese and Japnese restaurant together combining all their skills, in Chinese cuisine, and Japanese techniques. They partnered with ex-lettuce entertain you partner and veteran restauranteur Ed Culleeney (Ben Pao, currently pl8 in Barrington) 8000 Miles menu will be comprised of Chinese and Japanese small plates like tuna avocado sumiso and hand grenades with traditional items as crab rangoon and sichuan spicy dumplings. Main dishes will be combined from the two other restaurants (TL's Four Seasons and PL8) like chong ching noodle soup, dried chili chicken, thai basil shrimp, black pepper garlic beef to list a few. Sushi will be a highlight with maki rolls featuring triple k.c., sakura roll, snow crab roll, fireworks salmon and crunchy lobster, with additional sashimi and nigiri. A great bar with many specialty drinks to please.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Fabulous as always. We eat here regularly and the food is always delicious. Great maki rolls and the service was excellent. We had a group of 10 on a Saturday night."

  • "Enjoyed the food here as always but the waiter Jerry added some unexpected comedy to the meal! Only thing I found I don't enjoy here are the drinks. Hate to say it but everyone just tastes off but the food and now the jokes are worth coming for!"

  • "We came to 8000 miles after stopping at Lynfred Winery for a wine tasting. Lynfred and 8000 miles have a relationship where if you purchase a bottle of wine and bring it to 8000 miles the same day, there is only a $5 corking fee. This was a huge bonus, and the staff at 8000 miles were more than happy to open our bottles for us. Our party of 4 sampled food from all over the menu, and everything was delicious (the sushi in particular). We'll be back soon!"

  • "With the look from outside as they have bamboo on the window you think you are going to walk into a Chinese-Japanese feel. But instead you have a industrial look and with the name being 8000 miles and the fact they say its that for from their home land you would think they would bring it into the restaurant. There was only one person that could of been Chinese/Japanese and the rest were american. The food was good with a typical price around $12-$15. But keep in mind if you order some of there appetizers it may only feed 1 person."

  • "Third visit - last time was carry-out - and not disappointed. Food was great, service was great - not a single complaint. Love having so many gluten-free options to choose from, and a knowledgeable staff to work with. Looking forward to trying more new dishes during our next visit!!"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "I would like to thank the restaurant for taking the time to have us dine with them. My bf is gluten and diary free and they were able to accommodate our needs. They were able to taylor some of the sushi rolls for us, and that is always appreciated! We will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "The look of the restaurant was not that of your typical asian venue. While the food was good, I found it a bit bland. Good sized portions, served nice and hot. The Japanese items better than the Chinese. All in all, a nice establishment with good service."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "As always; the food here is great...if you don't mind waiting. Very vibrant menu for all kinds of tastes from sushi to tai. Usually I would be blaming the poor service for the extremely excessive wait for "raw fish" but our server was spot on and quite embarrassed. Not sure if they lost a few chef's right as dinner service started or they just lack the talent to handle a busy restaurant. I will hold out hope that management gets it together here because it would be a shame if this gem closed due to mis-management. We will give it another shot in a few months and see what happens. So far we have walked away completely satisfied 1 out of about 8 tries here. Please make it work. We desperately need a go to sushi place in Roselle."

  • "The food is very good and quite reasonably priced. The menu has several vegetarian options and the presentation is very well done. The place had been open for a year yet I did not know it was there. I will be back since there were several things I wanted to try. Try the green beans - they are really good."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Great menu and very good food. Service was good; waitress was attentive without being overbearing. We enjoyed everything we ordered. They have a decent wine list and a full bar, but they also allow you to bring in your own wine and charge a modesty corkage fee. Nice touch. It gets fairly loud when it's crowded, but it's tolerable. We'll be going back again."

  • "We've eaten here numerous times now and have always enjoyed the food and had great service. I am still not a big fan of Asian food, but I am learning and have usually been happy with my selections. My husband loves it, however, so I will be forced to continue to try different things (such a sacrifice LOL)>"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Really enjoyed our dinner here. They were very busy the night we were there so the service was a little slow, but we were seated right away and the good was delicious. We will be back."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "I went with a group of ladies, so we ordered a variety of items off the menu, some of which were too spicy for my taste. I really enjoyed the spring rolls, wide rice noodles with chicken, and a shrimp dish (possibly thai basil?). I would definitely go back again, as it is a quality restaurant super close to home."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "I had heard good things about 8,000 Miles, but didn't know what to expect. This upscale Asian restaurant pleasantly surprised me with its cool, contemporary ambiance, attentive service and great food. We split an order of the vegetable spring rolls which were wonderful. My Kung Pao Chicken was perfect and my friend really enjoyed her wide rice noodles. Prices were reasonable. I will definitely be back!"

  • "The food was great. Our server was very nice and attentive. Only flaw of the evening was that our reservation was for 7:30pm and we didn't get seated until 8:30pm. I'm assuming the hostesses just didn't plan right because during our hour wait there were random tables available but just never next to each other (there were 6 of us). We did the Group meal which turned out to be a good deal for us. So aside from the long wait, we had a good time and would go back."

  • "We had a wonderful evening. The sushi was outstanding! The menu offered many choices in entrees as well! The Church Street Beer was a hit!"

  • "Great restaurant! The food was excellent and the waiter was fantastic. We will be dining here again for sure"

  • "First time at 8000 miles. First thing we noticed restaurant was very loud, high ceilings, hard surfaces, noisy. Drinks were good, wife loved the Mai Tai. Appetizers ordered, fourth person sat while the other three finished theirs "sorry, the kitchen is busy". Dinner comes eventually, missing parts , waved down the waiter, "I'll check on that", never did show up, waved him down again, started to complain, he'll get the manager. She came over a few minutes later, apologized, said the kitchen was short staffed. She did buy us a round of drinks, parts were taken off the bill, but res. was made a couple of hours earlier, why accept reservations if you can't service your customers? Is this the same owners as TL's, Bartlett?, no comparison."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The food is wonderful. The service needs improvement. This is the second time we have had food ordered and not served. Our waiter was knowledgeable and helpful and it was not his fault. Our appetizer orders never came out, and we cancelled them when the entrees were served."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Visited 8000 miles midweek, no real need for reservations on a snowy evening. Learned about the restaurant from a friend, and appreciated his recommendation because I liked the restaurant with it's generous selection of Japanese and Chinese restaurant. This restaurant is upscale, neighborhood jewel, with a very well stocked bar. I understand on the weekends reservations are a must, as the restaurant gets crowded, and rightfully so. Wait staff was friendly and very personable...winning combonations!"

  • "The restaurant ws quite busy but seemed short staff. Waiter was doing his best but seemed to have tables all over. First round of drinks took 30 mins. Maitre De was also bar tender. Seemed everyone was waiting. Cancelled final round of drinks as we didn't want to wait again. Food was excellent but need to staff appropriately"

  • "outstanding food and service. we had a lovely Valentine's evening"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "First time here for my wife and I, although we are very familiar with the sister place in Bartlett. Nice open feel to the place. Did not seem too crowded even when it was completely full. Service was great. Food arrived quickly after placing our order. Quality and tast of food was about average. I am hoping to try other items on the menu before a give them a final opinion on their food."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The food was good the problem this trip was service. Order was wrong then corrected but never served. The main course was taken off the check and a dessert was presented without asking if we even wanted on. I hope this problem was because of Valintines Day."

  • "Vibrant atmosphere. Great choices of sake. Interesting Asian dishes."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food was good and the service was so bad it ruined our valentines day. We had to go out to dinner the next night. We waited 25 minutes for our drinks and they were never refilled and we were never asked if we wanted refills. We noticed are whole section was having the same issue."

  • "Had been wanting to try for a long time. Finally went for my birthday-party of 6. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food. The waitress was helpful and attentive."

  • "I have been to 8000 Miles 4 times now and it has yet to disappoint! Each time the food has been perfect, and authentic. Finally a restaurant that will spice up your food just how you want it! If you like spice try the Sichuan dumplings! The spring rolls are great as well as any of the entrees I have tried including the Kung Pao Beef/Chicken."

  • "While getting my hair done down the street, the girls were talking about a great sushi place near by! They were saying how amazing the food was, the awesome fusion of chinese and japenese food and the freshness of everything they order! I cannot lie and tell you these girls were dead on! EVERYTHING we ordered was not only fresh but so flavorful!!!! I cannot wait to go back! The staff was so polite and attentive and the ambience was quaint and abdorble!"
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "I heard this place was delicious but not as good as TL's for sushi. We had sushi anyway and it was delicious. My only complaint is our service. Table behind us got seated 25min after us. Ordered sushi as well and got their food a good 15mins before we did. Not to mention the waitress came to our table 3 times already to tell us our food would be out soon. Then iit was 5mins. Then the kitchen was backed up. I'm pretty sure she forgot to put our order in. And hardly checked on us. Thats my only complaint. Other than that food was fantastic."

  • "We loved our dinner at this Chinese/Japanese fusion spot, which is within walking distance of Lynfred Winery. The menu has lots of spicy dishes along with a Sichuan traditional menu and a sushi menu. There are a few Thai dishes as well. We tried edamame, hot and sour soup, kung pao chicken, seven flavor chicken, Buddha's vegetables, Sichuan string beans, and pad thai. All were excellent. There are plenty of vegetarian options, and tofu can be added or substituted. Portions are quite generous and served in large bowls; ask for separate plates if you want to share. Note that dishes which say "wok fried" may be crispy-coated rather than stir fried. Our waitress was friendly and she knew the menu very well. We will definitely go back."

  • "Girls night out, our first time here. The food was good, service was excellent. Place was filled up, a lot of families. Our server was excellent, never had to wait for her to come by. Surprised that a place that sells sushi did not have a sushi bar where you could actually see it being prepared. We did have one big disappointment. One of us ordered Malbec, they were out. I ordered Prosecco, they were out. This was a Friday night and we were very surprised they were not stocked up and ready to go for the weekend. I ordered the sparkling wine from Michigan, it was red and awful. I had the Main Street sushi dinner which was good. The rest order hot dishes and were happy. Will give it another try and hopefully the bar is ready to go."

  • "This was our first visit and we were pretty excited to have a lively looking restaurant in Roselle finally !! The food did not disappoint, but the service was VERY slow. 45 minutes from the time we sat down until drinks arrived. Come on people...hire more staff or cook faster because the food took a long time as well. Well give it a second chance, but when eating out, that is my lit, so I hope there are improvements next time."

  • "I loved the simple, relaxed decor. Service is friendly, with no urgency to rush you out. The food is not the usual Chinese joint type food. There is a nice mix of Chinese and Japanese cuisine, with sushi, rolls and "traditional" Chinese dishes. Went with a party of four, and sampled the spring rolls and edamame appetizers; both delicious. Entrees included a few rolls, a beef dish and a chicken dish; all were excellent. The chocolate banana wontons for dessert capped a delightful meal."

  • "Outstanding food with great presentation. Service was friendly, professional, and prompt without the feeling of being rushed. The wine list was acceptable but I felt the selection was somewhat limited. Our group was large and we all agreed we'll make another return in the near future...8000 Miles is a real gem and close to home!!"
