Caveat: Our home town has many, many excellent Asian restaurants, so my review is biased. The Mustard Seed is a busy pan-Asian restaurant with full bar and decent food. Wait staff was attentive and kept us informed and served. Hot tea selection was sparse but acceptable. The food aspired to creativity and flavor and mostly succeeded though I would appreciate...

We arrived around 1pm and had to wait about 5 minutes. Had great service and lunch arrived about 15 minutes later. I had the seared Ahi tuna salad - amazing!! My husband had the Thai chicken curry noodle bowl - excellent! We eat here whenever we are in Missoula.

The Mustard Seed is a familiar favorite where I look forward to eating their tasty, creative offerings. I brought my teenage daughter for her first experience with this type of food on this trip. She also enjoyed the food -- orange chicken was her choice -- and modern, quiet atmosphere.

This is a busy place so make sure to make a reservation. The food was tasty and flavorful and the service was pretty good. We were a large group and the restaurant was very accommodating to us.

Very popular with locals and nearby residents, this restaurant has great spring rolls and modestly priced entrees that are spicd down to meet the local standards. There was spiced rice instead of fried rice and brown rice was available but white rice would have required a 45 minute wait.

New to Missoula, we were looking for some great restaurants, especially with an Asian flare. The Mustard Seed fills that bill. We always ask for Crystal as our server, because she keeps us entertained with her quick wit. I haven't had a dish I didn't like so far. Usually when I go out to eat, I stick to the same... More

We have eaten here for several years. It had been a few months since our last visit so we decided to stop in for dinner. In the past, food was delicious and service good. Today, prices had increased and entree vegetables tasted burnt and included ingredients not listed in the menu description. Quality cooks in the kitchen appear to be... More

Over the years The Mustard Seed has replaced Jakers as my preferred dining spot in Missoula. Located at the Southgate Mall it's easy to find with plenty of parking obviously. I've eaten here for lunch and dinner and never been disappointed. Typical of Chinese/Asian restaurants they have a wide variety of options including all of the usual suspects. I have... More

A nice GF menu, and helpful wait staff. I had a lunch size Chicken Osaka for dinner - it was excellent. Good GF dessert as well. Very good service. Now if someone would create a GF Pad Thai : )

My sister-in-law and I went to Missoula for a Girl's Day Out. It was something we should have done years ago and should have made it a tradition!! We had so much fun shopping and just being together. We ate at the Mustard Seed. What a treat! I thought the atmosphere was more like a sports bar. I can't recall... More
