Well it's is an amazing place which refer a lot the Celtic period and the Vikings style for who is charmed by their culture. But one thing I couldn't stand that night the music too loud also music which didn't match the atmosphere and the place at all. Overall amazing food!!!!!

Great venue!! Loved the menu, loved the whiskey, loved the service, loved the decor!! The only thing we struggled with was the seating times were too short!! We could've sat there all evening! Thanks Mjolner!!

Great food. Prices are a little steep but delicious meals. Found the RNB music a bit odd with the rest of the ambience.

Loved this place. Totally unique and an experience which I think is largely lacking in sydney. My only piece of constructive criticism would be the music - RnB really didn’t suit the vibe.

Thankyou so much for my surprise birthday gift! It was a lovely evening. The main meal we had was amazing. Dessert was okay and we would have loved more options for starters! Thanks again, my friend and I loved our experience!

Yes I would recommend this to a friend but he’d have to be one of my more eccentric friends. When my son told me that he wanted to have a celebratory dinner at Sydney’s one and only Viking-themed restaurant, I thought he was kidding. “Surely Sydney’s got more than one Viking restaurant?”, I thought. Not really. We went on a Monday night and the place was pretty full. The host and waiting staff were very charming and up for the theme which has been executed really well and on the right side of kitsch to be uplifting and fun. Better still the food was genuinely very good although of course highly meat-centric, and juicy, salty and plentiful enough to send you straight to Valhalla with a blocked artery. The lamb special was toooo good. The cocktails were delicious and properly boozy but I stuck to the mead, served in a horn drinking cup of course. Pretty hilarious as a cheat day splurge but definitely not for vegetarians or dieters.

Given we had booked early for a 40th birthday, I was VERY disappointed to have our party of 14 split over two tables without being notified. I'd been before and found the service impeccable, and quite fun. This time it was rushed and without any 'showmanship' of the restaurant theme that we previously experienced. The food was nice, but too heavy on the bone marrow, which is a very niche menu item. We probably won't go again.

We had a great night at Mjølners. Frida, who served us, even took the time to write us a little message in Swedish in a card (I’m Danish so I understand). The food was great and the serving was good even though it was a very busy night. The vibe was very good and I would definitely recommend it Mjølner to people I know.

Great atmosphere that's fun and en pointe in its effectiveness in keeping to the theme. The staff were fantastic. Serving portions were generous and not pretentious. Cocktails were inventive and delicious. Definitely try the whiskey luge, if you can. All around a fun night out and expect to stagger out of the venue after a couple hours of excess.

Great Concept restaurant. The Viking theme is wonderfully carried hrugh multiple aspects of Mjolnir all the way to 'choosing your weapon' where the waitress unfurls a leather cloth holding an array of knives of varying shapes and sizes with ornate Nordic wooden handles.
The Short rib was amazing, succulent, tender and substantial. The viking horns as goblets for the meady cocktails was inspired as was the drinking whiskey out of the hollowed out marrow bone after finishing it.
A fun restaurant with good food and good service. Our waitress Amy had a stunning figure and it would be good to have her in an Oktoberfest style Nordic outfit to accentuate her curves and look. Perhaps a more Valkyrie-like outfit for the waitresses might be fun though the black corset looked great :)

I would almost give a perfect review however, my only disappointment about this place is that they play loud hip-hop music, which just kills the Nordic atmosphere, and there is so many ambient Norse bands out there they could place instead.
Besides that, the food and the staff were amazing and I would recommend to anyone.

Such a cool experience, drinking beer from a horn and eating the 'beast' on the menu. Freya was helpful with her selection of cocktails and service, and all the food was delicious. Quite pricey, but we left feeling very full. Highly recommend.

Possibly one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had. The environment was lit perfectly for the theme of the restaurant. Drinks were all varied, had their own unique spins and tastes which were delivered fantastically. While the food may not be for everyone. If you are looking for something exotic and different the foods I’d say are some of the best I’ve ever tasted in a restaurant, particularly the trout. But the best aspect was the staff. While there had been some changes and set backs on our party’s part the staff were beyond reasonable and kind beyond what they should have been. The only criticism I can really give it is that it’s a place that is for people that enjoy alcohol. While the food and non-alcoholic drinks can still leave you very satisfied. The larger experience I find comes from the variety of cocktails, mead and presentation of drinks.
However aside from that. It’s a place I could easily recommend and would be excited to return to again.

Food was great, service was very average. Waitress didn't seem interested / enthusiastic about providing the experience which this place and its fit-out is all about.
Seating is shared tables so expect to be close to your neighbouring diners!

Thanks Grace and crew, our night was fantastic. The food was amazing and portions were far larger than expected. Was just the two of us but would love to bring a larger group for the full feast experience.
