The Mustard Seed was started in 1978 in Missoula, Montana by a group of friends and family. Included in that group were Betty and Nancy Tokumoto and Betty's husband, David Hall, who still is active in the company today. Betty and Nancy grew up in Okinawa, Bangkok, and Hawaii and attended college in Oregon, so they have the unique ability of blending the cooking styles of the Far East with the tastes of the Pacific Northwest. Gary Siemens, a Missoula physician, joined the company in 1984 and Craig Langel, an accountant, joined the company in 1997. We have since had several other partners join our company including Steve Kemple another Missoula physician.
Our Asian-style dishes are prepared with fresh vegetables, lean meats, and light sauces. Most items at the Mustard Seed are prepared from scratch. Our vegetables and meats are cut fresh every day, and our signature sauces and dressings are made by hand. Our menu is healthy – we never add MSG or oxidants. We have always tried to provide the best quality at a reasonable price. Our facilities offer a casual, comfortable atmosphere where we know you will enjoy your dining experience. If you prefer, take-out and delivery services are available.
