Ordered several family size platters for our parents 45th wedding anniversary party. After arriving at the party, we opened them up and realized that we were only given individual sizes. We did not have enough food, and to make matters worse, we were charged for the family entrees!! Tried to contact the Mustard Seed twice and emails and calls were... More

We are very sorry for the confusion on what a family style dish feeds. Unfortunately it is a common term in Asian restaurants and we use it as well. A family style entree actually feeds 1-2 people, they are meant for sharing. I am sorry if you had stated how many people you were wanting to feed and our host... More

My husband and I went to the Mustard Seed on Valentine's Day. Although it was an understandingly busy day, at no point did we feel rushed. Service was wonderful! My husband had bison Mongolian beef, which was quite tasty. Do not miss having the green beans. A great place to eat located in the Southgate Mall, but not typical mall... More

Situated within the Southgate Mall, this Chinese restaurant offers a wide variety of choices. The interior is quiet, with subdued lighting and booths are available. We consider this to be the best choice in Missoula for Chinese food.

The Mustard Seed is a Missoula fave offering fresh Mandarin fare with many choices for hungry visitors, young and old alike. The ambiance is also lovely and service is exquisite. It doesn't matter whether you are eat vegan or meat, your meal will be very special and will taste delicious!

Only Asian restaurant I went to while I Missoula. Food is fun and flavorful. Little more spendy, but worth the price.

We decided to stop for a snack! Neither of us knew really what to expect and we ended up really enjoying it! The waitress was delightful and funny and very attentive!! We ordered the spicy pepper and shrimp dish over rice, it was the perfect spicy, not too hot but def had a kick. We got the Chinese pork, which... More

I worked here in the 80's and looked forward to a meal during a visit to Missoula. Tried a new dish and it came with chicken that must have been prepared hours before and added to my dish, and reheated. Tough. The dish was bland, not like their mainstays. I asked the server to return it to the kitchen, and... More

great food. i think there is something addictive about the chicken osoka. we visit every time we are in Missoula (at least once) and have never been disappointed in the food. the restaurant is always busy and service can be slow. not a quite place. check out the noodle express for faster food, but i still like the dinning experience.

Thank travel-yea
