Excellent food, some of the best meat I have ever had as well as perfect service and an enjoyable atmosphere. I have already recommended to others who have made plans to visit. Well worth the trip.

Probably one of the best experiences I have had dining out. My girlfriend and I were seated under the airconditioning duct, slightly cold, the hostess offered my girlfriend something to keep her warm and it was a fur cape (really Cool) . The food was pretty damn nice. The Waiter was awesome and friendly plus I have never been happier to pay for a bill with a nice neat way they give it to you with a card and a little Viking ship on the inside

WOW! So worth the wait. Booked 6 months ago for our 21st wedding anniversary (travelled
From Brisbane). A little tricky to find (look for the wooden door) but fantastic ambience, amazing service and authentic tasty food. The beer horns just added to the experience and the mead shot.... still licking my lips. Will definetly be back. Highly recommend to anyone! A fantastic night.

I liked the restaurant space and the service was welcoming..at times though, I would have liked to have been left alone to enjoy the meal. eg picking your steak knife. It's fun at first. After a while it felt gimmicky.

The shots and cocktails were a highlight.

The food was bland for me. My short rib was under seasoned and the fat had not been rendered off properly. The entree of version tartare tasted fine. Visually it was not good. The popped rice was very unappealing. It looked like maggots on the dish.

Water glasses were rarely topped up but they would ask if you wanted another cocktail or beer every time they passed the table. That was after I mentioned I was driving and was done drinking.

Even though the price's are somewhat expensive the food without a doubt is worth the value, the staff recommends sharing your meal's with others at the table and I agree- it was a fun experience and was great to taste everything they had to offer for each dish was just filled with flavor and cooked amazingly. The ambiance was unique unlike what I've seen in other restaurants- you forget you're in Sydney. If you're looking for a different and fun type of dining you must try this place out if you're around- best reserve in advance for it's a popular restaurant.

The alcohol drinks I'd describe as both modern and successfully captures the Norse theme they were aiming for.

If the prices don't bother you then I feel you'll be able to have the full and great experience it has to offer you.

We went to Mjolner for my son's 20th. It was a welcome surprise and something unique.
I don't want to give away too many secrets but it was a lot of fun.
I ordered 2 Rib Eyes which were wonderfully huge and beautifully cooked.
Generally, I'm not a big meat eater, but I chose Mjolner because my boys enjoy meat and sizeable portions.
This was outstanding and I've recommended the restaurant to so many already.
Would love to go again soon.

Really poor experience with booking despite vookin weeks in advance. Felt really let down when we added an additional person through the online booking page 24 hours prior but did not hear back from Mjolner until 2 hours before my original booking saying I had to come 30 mins earlier or 2 hours later. If we didnt come earlier we would be only given a 1 hour sitting which was not a nice thing to hear. I had been trying to ring but the phone lines but was never answered by an operator. We were then given 1.5hours for our booking when the website actually states 2 hours when we booked. So we were kicked off the table and put in a waiting lounge area without being able to order dessert.

Experience at the venue was great. Great hosts Nik and Elizabeth and great food. Wonderful atmosphere.

Fun place to dine without being gimmicky. Great experience with excellent service. Delicious and hearty food without being too heavy, good value for a nice meal. Beef short rib highly recommended for its melt-in-your-mouth texture and I was a big fan of the Brussels sprouts

It was a great birthday venue. It was refreshingly different from what we've tried or had before. The atmosphere really complemented the food and the mead in those in those horn cups capped it off. Our host, I believe her name was Katie was quite informed and helpful in selecting our culinary choices. Tack so mycket.

This place did not disappoint! From the moment you step inside you know you’re in for a different experience. The rooms, furnishings and lighting are inviting and within theme as are the wait and bar staff. The food was amazing, our fav being the beef ribs. The menu and drinks are not cheap so best to save your pennies so you can try what takes your fancy on the night. We’ll be back to try the rest of the menu.

It was the Nordic theme that initially attracted me to the restaurant, and was quickly amazed by the look and feel of the place as well on arrival. Great presentation, and a bit of theatre between the opportunity to drink your beer from a horn and to select your knife from a leather-bound bundle. And when the drinks and food arrived, I was also delighted. I found the staff to be genuine, the dishes well-presented, and ultimately, very tasty.

It was good but not as good as the last time I was there in February. The cocktail list had changed which was disappointing, however, the food appeared to all be the same. The service was amazing as always and the meet and greet with the manager surprised my guests at the table. I believe all in all this is an amazing restuarant and keep up the good work.

My wife and I dined at Mjolner to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had been wanting to go there for sometime but we finally got there. We were not disappointed, as soon as you walked through the spectacular door it felt that you were transported to another world. The staff were friendly and provided a real sense that they were there to ensure our dining experience was great, the food was amazing and we really enjoyed our night. We were also surprised to receive a little gift to celebrate our anniversary (which was not expected, but very appreciative of the gift). We will definitely be back, with a bigger ‘clan’ to enjoy a night out

From the moment we set foot inside this hidden gem we knew we were in for a great meal. Both the bartender and our waitress Charlene ( I think that was her name) were friendly and professional. Despite the horrible rap music, the food was stunning and we were able to enjoy our conversations without having to yell at each other. I have been raving about our experience to everyone because it was so good. Already planning our next visit!

Had a great time, the food was delicious and GREAT customer service. I mentioned that we were celebrating my partner's birthday when i booked and he received a small gift which we we're both surprised about! I wasn't expecting anything like that at all. Selecting a "weapon" to eat also made the experience interesting.
