A word from 8000 Miles
Traveling 8000 miles together from the city of Chongqing in China, our two chef partners developed plans years ago to open a Chinese and Japnese restaurant together combining all their skills, in Chinese cuisine, and Japanese techniques. 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.

    When we arrived, we were told we had no reservation. I had my confirmation from open table. that we had a reservation. Ordered appetizers. Not only did we get them once but twice. The did comp the 2nd set. Unfortunately we then had to wait for our entree. This is the 2nd time we have had an issue at 8000. We will probably wait awhile before we dine there again. It is a shame because their food is quite good.

    In short, our waitress/bartender did NOT want to be working the night that we went to 8000 Miles. She was visably annoyed, there were items on our bill that we did not order and 2 entrees that we did order were incorrect. We are by no means "hard" customers - we did not customize our orders; no special requests. I ordered shrimp pad thai and got pineapple fried rice instead and a friend of mine ordered crispy honey sesame beef and got sesame chicken instead. Also, we ordered edamame that never made it's way to our table. Overall the food and drinks were tasty - but for the $120 we spent that night, I expected better service.

    Excellent food and great service. This Roselle restaurant is tucked back from Irving Park Road on Main Street making it a hidden gem of a restaurant. Our party ordered different menu items and everyone was well pleased. From mild to spicy, you can't go wrong; and their homemade ginger ale is excellent. Will definitely be returning again.

    Friday night and barely anyone was there. The service and the manager were terrible. The restaurant was half full but the staff kept messing up our order. The manager did not remediate the situation and at times added to the grief. Would not recommend this place and we will not be returning. I recall this restaurant being a hip place when they ordered. Clearly others have had the same experience and don't go back. If you must-- I'd stick with take out. Skip the grief with the staff and get the good food.

    While I liked the concept and the food was okay, we are from the city, so the trek out to Roselle is something that is only warranted when something is spectacular. For some reason, the place had a funky smell the whole time we were there - like a musty rag was used to wipe the tables before they opened and that really stuck with me.

    This was our second visit to 8000 Miles, and it didn't disappoint. We brought 4 friends with us this time, and they all raved about the food and setting. They all said that they would absolutely return. We all had different entrees, and everyone was pleased. One couple had the appetizer of honey crispy shrimp (I think that is what it was), and he said that it was the best appetizer that he's ever had. Wonderful place.

    LS19VIP
    Dined on 6/25/2014
    The opening of this restaurant a year ago has helped turn downtown Roselle from a ghost town into a busy place. This combination Chinese and Japanese restaurant has great food and a great location off the beaten path. The new outdoor dining area is very nice and quiet (inside is quiet as well so a good place for dinner conversation). My only criticism is that service has been spotty at times although that has improved.

    Pros: accommodated our large party of 12 at the last minute; good sized portions; dry chili chicken entree was my favorite; decor is very modern and trendy, feels like a downtown restaurant. Cons:dumpling appetizer was too greasy; waitress was not friendly and didn't seem like she wanted to be there; hostess was not very professional or helpful; food took a very long time.

    I went here as a referral from another family that had liked it. I had to ask for a waitress, and that was a bad start. The food was ok, we asked for spicy, and felt it was rather bland. The sushi was good, but I wouldn't order anything aside the sushi and cocktails. Not sure I would go back. It was disappointing.

    We were very pleased with our first visit here. Server was VERY good, and the food was terrific. (Crispy Honey Sesame Beef and Mongolian Beef) Corkage policy - Lynfred wine $5.00 - Any other wine brought in $15.00. Ate outside and the patio is very nice, however you will get extensive train noise and LONG train whistles as they pass through downtown Roselle. We will definitely be back. We felt that it was great value for the money. Also had a small plate of Big Eye Tuna sashimi for only $5.95. Very delicious and a good value. I don't believe that you will be disappointed.

    This restaurant in downtown Roselle is awesome! We had the spicy calamari as an app., and it was amazing! We tried about 5-different sushi rolls, all of which tasted very fresh and delicious. Prior to dinner we stopped at Lynfred Winery next door and bought one of my favorite wines. We brought it with us to the restaurant and drank it while enjoying our sushi. A $5 corkage fee applies, but so worth it. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    My wife and I found this place in October of last year and it quickly turned into one of our favorites. Great local place for sushi and a exciting variety of unique Asian-inspired dishes. We have yet to be disappointed by the food. I've recommended this place to friends and co-workers and they too have become fans! However, on several occasions lately we've waited quite a long time for our food. We were there on a Thursday evening and the dining room was buzzing, but not packed. We shouldn't have waited 45 minutes for our food. They do carry-out and delivery, and their menu is quite extensive. I'm not sure that the kitchen is able to keep up with the demand; Dine-in orders always get pushed in favor of carry out and delivery.

The food was phenomenal, the waiter was hilarious, even keeping our teen daughter entertained. We will definitly be going back.
