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.<br />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.

"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."

"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."

"We have never had a bad meal here. Food is always tasty, hot, and plentiful. A great value for the money. You will not be disappointed. It is noisy and the tables are close together, but the food and service are top notch."

"We had reservations and were seated immediately even though the restaurant was very crowded. They seated us in a small room in back, which was nice as the tables in the bar area are very conversation challenged. Our server, Heidi, was outstanding. She knew the menu very well, and was able to answer any questions. She was attentive without being bothersome. One thing that I really liked was that she clearly mentioned the prices on all the specials for the night. Almost all restaurants make you ask or surprise you with the prices. The manager was also very visible and stopped by many tables to check on the patrons experience. The food was excellent, and the wine prices were reasonable. We will definitely return."
