Consistently good

Always excellent food and service in Missoula. Don't avoid this fantastic restaurant because it's located in a mall. They have an extensive menu of fresh dining options unique for the area. The best Oriental food we've had in Montana.

The food is extremely good and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this place to everyone and the prices are reasonable and you do get a lot of food. You won't leave hungry.

We really enjoy this place! The service and food is great. Today we ordered 3 appetizers for our lunch and it was the perfect amount of food -- and topped it off with a shared piece of cheesecake. [note: the review about take-out is NOT mine, although we share the same initials]

I used to think Mustard Seed had decent food, but after tonight I won't be back. My chicken seemed like deep fried chicken jerky--dry and chewy. Definitely a disappointment.

Last week, I ordered two meals and two appetizers. I must pick them up since the restaurant does not deliver to my side of Missoula. When I returned home with my order, I was missing the Shrimp Wontons. I called and the manager acted unconcerned. She merely wanted to know if I wanted to come get a Gift Card for... More

We last visited the Mustard Seed over twenty years ago...I'm sorry to say that they haven't improved and we won't be going again another twenty years. The restaurant has zero atmosphere, the service while friendly is totally inept. The food is a poor imitation of "Chinese" food without any of the freshness and great taste that one should expect. The... More

This is the third time I have tried this place. I wish I hadn't bothered. I was right the last two times. I cannot understand at all why anybody eats at this place. The food is over priced and one plate will barely feed one person. When you are charging me $9-16 the plate should be enough for at least... More

The Mustard Seed is overpriced, overrated and watered down quasi-Asian cuisine. If you want bland food with delicious ginger dressing (they do have that) and your palate is not accustom to authentic Asian flavors, this might be the place for you. I found the food bland, boring and uninspiring which is a real drag considering the cost. It is far... More

In the centrally located Southgate Mall, the Mustard Seed has something on the menu for everyone. Delicious entrees, mouth watering desserts, topped with very friendly and knowledgeable wait staff and a fully stocked bar makes this an evening to remember! Only 25 minutes wait at dinner time on a Friday was quite acceptable. Portions are large, so go hungry and... More
