This was the second time coming to Mjölner. The food was amazing again, as was the service and the atmosphere. A wicked place for a catch-up with great friends after a long break. I'll definitely be coming back in the future.

Fantastic food and service. Atmosphere was lovely with the exception of one very loud table of people which spoiled it slightly. However, after moving out to the Bar area it was lovely with the great staff making delicious cocktails and providing interesting info on the many different Whiskys that they hold. A great time overall.

This place is like nothing else! From the unassuming door/entrance on street level, and into this Nordic Viking haven. It's got all the right attributes and the menu is amazing. The meals are big and I'd recommend grabbing a few dishes to share. Because of the sharing situation, I think this place is best enjoyed in a group of at least four. Of course you can have a dinner for two here as well, and that proper feasting feeling works better when shared with more people.

The cocktail list is fabulous as well, give the Northern Lights and the Shrubbery a go. They have great beers and a smaller, and very decent wine list too. We've been a few times now, and will definitely come again. Highly recommended for a different, delicious and fun dining experience.

Very personalised service by Elizabeth. The restaurant is great in making us feel special. I brought my fiancée here for his birthday and they had a signed card by everyone at Mjølner wishing him happy birthday!

Only recommend because its the only viking place in Sydney. Given its a viking place would expect nordic/viking music instead of normal music. The waitress who greeted us at table was too fast reading the menu initially and honestly we did not understand or make sense of what she was saying, its like she was rushed to get the order and go. The waiter who served us the opening honey mead shots wldnt give me at the request of my guests any additional shots unless we pay $10 for it so we told him to charge it and agree to give us the shots, it was my birthday and mind you our bill was close to $1000 for the night. It actually was a bad vibe if we did not actually drink and poor experience if we did not use it for a laugh. Last time we were there the staff were much helpful and nice and accomodating. Based on this experience I wldnt visit next time. Its a shame.

Amazing food. Amazing staff. There isn't a negative thing I could express regarding our recent experience at the restaurant. We attended for our fourth wedding anniversary, at the end of the evening we were presented with a card signed by the staff members wishing us a great evening. Small things like that, as an ex chef and restauranteur make the biggest difference to a dining experience.

What an amazing venue. The food is divine, with the beast special and a couple of sides being enough for two people.
The drinks menu is comprehensive and Elizabeth is a lovely host, and very knowledgeable. She made our evening fantastic.

This was my second time here. Service was good as always. My friend and I dined a bit early so we had to vacate our table for subsequent customers. If I am being picky - the signature duck was a bit too oily as there was a big chunck of fat we could not eat. Loved the hammer and the pre-dinner honey alcohol. Will definitely return with other Thor-wannabes:)

It was our second time in Mjolner, my son's 18th birthday. The place is absolutely awesome, food is great and the drinks unique and delicious. The surprise gift for my son was huge surprise, it made his day, he will always remember it. The staff are fantastic, friendly and professional. We had a wonderful time, must go back soon.

Booked for the 30th November and the restaurant got it mixed up and thought our reservation was on the 23rd November so my card got charged the $25 fee per person and the restaurant is not returning my calls. Don't book here as they will take your money and not honour your reservation date!

Mjølner is the place to go for great food & drinks to catch up with friends or celebrations across the board. Been twice so far & am not disappointed from the care they take with food allergies for my wife all the way to providing great drink options for me & my friends. Look forward to many more visits

Food - excellent
Service - ditto
Overall experience - fantastic. You get to drink beer and mead out of a horn, pick your own dagger of choice to eat with, drink whiskey out of a bone. What more could you possible ask for?

Atmosphere was good, but felt very rushed as soon as we were seated we were told that we had 2hrs and 15mins to be finished as they needed the table. The waiter, although seemed lovely, we couldn’t hear him!
Would try again on a weekday when not so busy

The staff were great and they were so lovely and cheerful. The food was lukewarm. The fog of war cocktail and the broccoli were definitely highlights. The little surprise good at the end for my anniversary was very sweet. The music was loud and I did not feel was not really in keeping with the environment. The Waitress was kind enough to turn it down as much as possible. However, to have to sit and listen to music that was full of swearing and derogatory terms while trying to enjoy a nice evening out was very disappointing. I was told only 10 to 20% of the people complain about the music. I find that figure staggering when I consider on average less than 10% of unhappy customers will complain. That is a large portion of people that will say nothing and just not come back.

I LOVE THIS PLACE! I love everything about it, the whole experience was honestly amazing and I really would recommend everyone to go (I've already started recommending). It was inexpensive and would prefer this place over fine-dining any time! The food was amazing, definitely stuffed us up for a group of 6 people. Was well worth. GO IF YOU CAN!

Thank you to the staff that worked on Saturday 9th November. The service that was provided was absolutely outstanding. The politeness and efficiency of the staff really exceeded my expectations.
We ordered the set menu which was $75 pp. I honestly didn't expect that much value for money. The portion sizes were spot on. The standard of the meals where that of fine dining. The meats were cooked to perfection and the sides(broccoli and potatoes) were fresh with a fabulous twist.
There entire experience with the bone marrow whiskey shots, the picking of the knives and the shot on arrival. Oh and not to forget the birthday present and card signed by each individual staff member really made the experience very different from your normal restruarant. Thank you for a great night.

Attentive service from the beginning to end. The food serving was quite generous. The chicken fat corn is a must try! Although the short ribs was bit of a let down as it was quite dry. Overall had a good experience

The food was great and the portions were very generous. It’s expensive but worth it. The hip-hop music pretty much ruins the ambiance, which is a shame considering how much effort has gone into the physical appearance of the interior and little touches like the shot of mead before your meal and choosing your knife, for example. Overall, we enjoyed it.
