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.

“If you like good sushi & sashimi, you'll like Mitsu Neko”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

One of the main reasons I like going to Hawaii is the availability of fresh sashimi. If you are a fan of sushi and sashimi you are already aware of the difficulty in finding restaurants serving this in the Midwest. I am very pleased that I have found and can highly
recommend Mitsu Neko in, of all places, Branson!
The restaurant is in a storefront in the back of a strip shopping center off highway 76. The interior is attractively decorated provides an overall warm atmosphere. The service by both the waitress and the sushi chef was very good. They were friendly, helpful, quick and welcoming. The sushi was unique and delicious The sashimi & poke were also very good and fresh..... As good as you will find this far from the ocean.
Their prices were (as expected) higher than most restaurants for comparable quantities of food but absolutely fair when one considers the cost and expense of bringing/serving FRESH (not frozen) fish into the middle of the continent.
I am very glad to the found this excellent source for sushi, sashimi and Poke and will definitely return soon!

“Great sushi in Branson!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

We stopped in here on a Saturday afternoon for a quick/light lunch. It was close to 2 when we got there but the owners did not seem put out by our late arrival, as a matter of fact they were suggesting more rolls for us to try. We had dinner reservations that night so we had 2 house salads, a California roll and a Show-Me Roll. My husband doesn't care for ginger dressing, but the dressing on the house salad was very good and more creamy, than water. We both enjoyed it. Both our sushi rolls were very good and fresh. The vegetables were so crisp and everything was presented nicely. After we finished, we contemplated another roll but decided to save room for dinner. The couple who owns this place are very sweet and make fantastic food. You can tell it is their passion to serve people good, fresh food. Next time we will make this place a priority for dinner so we can try all the things we didn't get to this time. We will be back!

“Eager to please”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

We came in this past weekend looking for some good sushi. My daughter ordered her usual favorite, but it was prepared much differently than she was used to. The chef noticed she wasn't eating it, asked her her preference, and completely remade her rolls, no charge. It made such a huge difference in our day.

“They are on a roll!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

To echo many of the previous comments, the Blue Fire Roll is amazing. The fire (actual fire) really adds to the dimension of the dish. The sushi was fresh and amazing, especially considering it is in the middle of America. The owners are pleasant and welcoming. They are innovative and creative, which is what you want to find in sushi restaurants. It was the best place I ate in Branson by far.

“Who Knew Branson, Mo. had a Great Sushi place??”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

My husband is from Mo. And we go to Branson from So. Ca. a few times a year so he can bass fish. Our second night my husband decided he wanted Sushi. We had had gone to Mitsu few times in the past and had never been disappointed and we were't this night either. It's a little hard to find at the end of a strip mall but worth it! The owner made us Salmon, white tuna ,Halibut and it was really good! I commented to my husband that i thought it was a bit pricey but his comment was 'you get what you pay for and this is great Sushi' . Seems like the locals also know about this place and like it.
