About Us

Traveling nearly 8000 Miles together from the city of Chong Ching, China to Chicago, long-time friends Shawn Li (TL’s Four Seasons), Ben Li and Wan Cai Li (formerly with Double Li) developed plans to open a Chinese and Japanese restaurant together when they arrived in the US. With an endless list of classic Sichuan recipes collected over the years and a love for the art of sushi, to bring bona fide traditional flavors with a contemporary twist to the city they originated in when they arrived in America, Chicago. Co-owners of 8000 Miles, Shawn Li and Ben Li, met when they were just 19-years-old in China where both were schooled in Chinese cuisine and sushi. Our name is very simple: our Chinese partners doorsteps in Chong Ching to the front door in Roselle is 8000 miles. The reward of our captivating journey is 8000 Miles Chinese + Japanese. We thank you for your patronage, we look forward to your business and hope you will enjoy our fresh, contemporary and authentic Asian cuisine.

What people are saying about our restaurant

Anyone, who visits our place leaves us well fed and in a great mood!

The people there were super nice and attentive. They let us sit outside in their COVERED patio- it was gorgeous watching the rain pour down close to us, while staying dry and eating our sushi. Setting and hosts: 5/5

The BEST Chinese food!! So fresh and flavorful. We would make the drive from Chicago to come here again. This is better than any Chinese restaurant we have found in Chicago. Try it out!
