Description: We would like to introduce Mitsu Neko Fusion Cuisine and Sushi Bar to the Branson Community and all sushi lovers. My husband and I have always wanted to have our own restaurant to create a unique, modern and romantic, city-like atmosphere. Roman, the owner and main sushi chef, completed a master’s degree in Japanese Studies. While living in our native country, Roman signed a two-year contract with Japanese magazine, where he wrote twenty seven (27) articles about history, geography, and culture of Japan. At the same time he worked in the Japanese studies department of the Academy of Science and taught Japanese in one of the local Middle schools. Speaking about myself, I completed a master’s degree in Spanish Studies, and am now pursuing second higher education in Market Finance. In 2008, Roman and I had an opportunity to relocate to the United States where we had to start from server’s positions, but soon after were able to become business owners. After almost three years of operating business with a partner, we decided that it was time for us to move on and have our own restaurant. Mitsu Neko is the place where we pursue our own dreams, ideas, and beliefs, and run business with our level of integrity. At Mitsu Neko, we strive to provide the best food quality, using fresh, healthy, and natural ingredients and family-like customer services. We are very thankful that we have a chance to share our passion for food with our supportive local customers and all tourists.

“The freshest sushi I've ever had.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

This place is the best sushi bar I've ever been too. It's a small corner in the wall that you would miss if u didn't look twice. You walk in to find very generous service and unique interior for being in the middle of branson. The food though is what really puts this place in the number one stop. Never been frozen fish and a unique twist to sushi by adding fresh strawberrys. I recommend the head and tails roll and tuna paradise roll. The best sushi outside of the coast.

“Excellent restaurant for both food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

We were extremely pleased with the restaurant both for the delicious food and the wonderful service from the owners who served as chef and waiter. We started with the miso soup, which was the most tasty, full-bodied we've had in any Japanese restaurant. The sushi was fresh, tasty, and beautifully presented. The chef went out of his way to prepare a very special mackerel sushi and served it on plates shaped like stars. One of us had the tiramisu for dessert and it was outstanding.

We can't end this review without a special word of thanks to the owners for being such a delightful couple. When we walked in, Kate greeted us with a warm friendly smile and we began a conversation which continued throughout the evening as the food was being prepared and enjoyed. Roman came over to the table to bring the special mackerel sushi, which one of us had for "dessert" and he explained how he had prepared such eye-candy. We ended up visiting with them after the meal and felt we had met two new friends.

We have both eaten at many Japanese restaurants over the years, and this is one of the best. We can understand well how it has been rated as the best restaurant in Branson. It was certainly by far the best meal we had during our stay. We definitely will eat here again when we visit Branson again. Outstanding is the best way to describe our experience.

“There's a reason this place is #1!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

This unique restaurant offers a special ambience, delicious food, and exceptional service. We especially enjoyed the tuna paradise and strawberry delight. And the tiramisu was light, fluffy and sensational! Thank you also to Danielle for adding such a personal touch to the evening!

“Our New Sushi Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

My family and i just moved to the area, and a co-worker suggested Mitsu Neko (he earned himself a beer) for my wife's b-day dinner. It has a great relaxed yet professional atmosphere, and a hip modern decor. the sushi was the best we've ever had. We absolutely LOVED the Strwawberry Delight Roll, which came as a pleasant surprise to me (as i'm a pretty picky eater). We were completely enthralled by the presentation and execution of the cocktails. Best Yellow Tail i've ever had, and...all at a reasonable price. The service was amazing, especially considering we had a VERY unruly 18 m/o with us. Will definitely be making this our new sushi place. They even gave us free ice cream to go for my wife. Большое спасибо
