Wow! Amazing food and simply superb professional service. Had a fantastic meal. The music is a little odd given the theme and it was a little bit loud but otherwise couldn’t fault the experience. Not a cheap night out but good value overall.

Really nice food and good set up/theme/attention to detail. Quite expensive and very squished but all in all a really nice meal.

So it's my second time going to Mjolner. I love it, awesome venue, cool, great ambiance. Food was good as always, except, the pork belly dish. It was really really bad, in fact I'd go as far as saying it was terrible.

It was extremely fatty, to the point of being indelible, and there was only a mere morsel of actual pork, which was pink by the way. Pork is not meant to be pink at all. The crackling was ok.

I've had pork belly before, and it was melt in your mouth. This wasn't. The couple next to use thought the same, and left whole dish on their plate, similar to us.

No way it was a $60 piece of meat. I did mention it to the waiter and his response was pork belly is always fatty. Not to this extent mate.

Well recommended for a one off treat. Food is excellent if you're into meat that is.

Bit expensive for a casual dining, but worth the extra dollars for the experience.

Great food! Great restaurant! But I felt the Viking vibe was lacking and to be honest it’s a bit pricey.

It is very much in the Vue Dumonde pricing range which I was surprised at.

So delicious, great service and heaps of fun!
It was my partner’s birthday and they gave him a shot glass to take home- above and beyond!
It is expensive, but well worth it for a special occasion. A very memorable feast!

This is based on my....4th visit here? It has become less cheesy with the "theatrics" which is great but still has a slight underlying cringe factor to it. Unfortunately again, we were "butted up" against a table back to back (with the first walk away to the left as you go up the stairs) which makes it a bit annoying for the staff to squeeze through, needing to move water jugs over heads to get past and just general feeling of being confined in a space just because they don't want to "spread us out" (even though there were only 5 tables in at the time we were there, would have been much better access and sitting for everyone, had we just been moved one table up...). I guess things like this makes you consider the difference in attention to customer's comfort and space enjoyment when you're spending $400 between 2 people.. The food is ALWAYS amazing. The service is usually great... however not sure I'm keen to be spending $200p/p for the overall feel there any more. (Yep, we drink up good when we are there!)

Thank you so much to the staff at Mjolner who were so Incredibly accomodating! We loved the novelty of drinking out of the horns and thoroughly enjoyed their range of cocktails and whiskey. Will visit again!

Celebrated our anniversary with my boyfriend here. Mjolner staff not only made it an intimate and amazing experience, but were very kind in gifting us our own Mjolner shot cups as an anniversary present. I would definitely recommend others to come enjoy the Viking experience.

P.s Make sure you to try taking a shot down the bone marrowbone! One in a life time experience.

Dining at Mjolner is very playful. Drinking out of horns, utilising daggers as steak knives, downing a shot of whisky through the bone marrow once you're done eating in it and more fire play involved with selected cocktails and food. It's definitely a place to go to if you like to be entertained during dinner. The highlight dish of the night was of course the bone marrow, so delicious! Overall it's a great restaurant to dine at, at least once in this lifetime. The staff were great - efficient, entertaining and friendly, food was delicious, although, don't expect it to be a proper Scandi restaurant that serves proper Scandi food as it's the restaurant's designs that's Scandi and ambience was lovely, not overly noisy for a date night.

Only down side was there should have been Viking music instead of hip hop for a better ambience. Was like a hip hop night club. Absolutely loved everything else.

Amazing, high quality food and service but a set menu for $75 quickly got out of hand when extras were offered which doubled the cost of the meal.

We were a group of 7 and we had the set course menu.

The staff were wonderful and the manager is a very cool dude who served us for most of the night.

2 days later, everyone in the group is still saying how good the food was.

Definitely worth the experience. Our cost was about $200 per head however we did have a lot of drinks.

10/10

Went with some friends to celebrate my 25th Birthday.
Food was incredible, as was the service, and the drink options were both fun and delicious.
They were more than happy to cater to a couple vegetarian guests too and did an amazing job at it.
The ambience and aesthetic of the restuarant was a lot of fun, and was done in a very smart and tasteful way.
Will definitely be coming back many times more in the future.
