This was our second visit to 8000 Miles in the past month. We are huge fans of TL's in Bartlett (same owners) and 8000 Miles is similar, but a smaller menu. The space is larger than TL's with high ceilings and has a "downtown" feel to it. Soft lighting, dark wood, a bar in the back, a little noisy so you can have a conversation with your friends and not worry about being too loud or everyone hearing it. They even have a semi-private room that I supposed would work well for a party.
However it is all about the food after all! The menu provides traditional Chinese favorites, Sushi, Thai, and changing specials. There is lots of flexibility with ordering dishes the way you like them, which people appreciate, We started with dumplings, regular and spicy, both good. I also had the Chicken Dumpling soup, which was nice on a cool night. Would be a great combo with sushi for a lighter dinner. Last visit I had the Shrimp with asparagus - excellent. One of the best stir fry dishes I have ever had. Light, great sauce. My husband has ordered 6 or 7 different types of sushi (on 2 visits) - all well presents and very fresh. This visit my daughter and I split the pad thai. It was very spicy - more than I like but it was still good with tasty chicken that had been freshly cooked, not sitting in a bin all evening. Will be trying the vegetables with tofu on my next visit for sure!
Drinks - Good wine selection, GREAT beer selections and some interesting tiny cocktails. Stick with the beer or wine.
Service - Excellent on both visits - I wish I would have gotten the servers names to give them props here. Friendly and professional!
Crowd - all ages - families, dates, groups of friends. LOVE it! A true neighborhood place where you can dress up or come as you are. Owner Shaun passed through twice to greet diners and he stopped to chat with us. I love this about 8000 Miles. When you put a face on your business, and show people you want them to have a good experience - it keeps them coming back!
We will make 8000 Miles a regular stop for dinner at least once per month. An awesome experience without going downtown!
