Great restaurant. Been 2 times and thoroughly enjoyed on both occasions. Would visit more often if prices were more friendly.

Food fit for the Vikings with drinks in giant horns to match. A great place for dinner and drinks on any night out

Spectacular evening! The cocktails were fantastic, I found myself very partial to the Bloodthirsty...
I had the pork belly, it was huge and delicious, my friend had the Rib, the meat just fell off!
He also tried the Life, and recommends the experience.

My partner and I had a beautiful evening for his birthday. It was our first time visiting Mjolner and the hosts made us feel at home. The food was delicious, the drinks were fabulous and everything had a Nordic twist. My partners favourite moments were drinking beer from a horn and choosing which knife he could eat his meal with. A very nice touch added by the staff at Mjolner was the birthday card dedicated to my partner. We will definitely be returning soon

Very cool place with amazing food. I feel bad not scoring 5’s across the board but we booked on for lunch and wish we had done dinner instead. I’m sure the ambiance/atmosphere and overall experience would have been better at night time (there were only 4 tables in). We will 100% go back as the food was delicious, but definitely book for an evening.

Service was very slow, waited almost 90 mins for mains to come out. Good experience otherwise - food and drinks were pricey (which we expected) but fantastic.

I would recommend to our friends that all of the food we got was lovely , the staff great and the atmosphere fantastic however the mains didn’t have any accompaniment which would have been nice rather than having to order sides as well which added up quite a bit.
Also my partner was looking forward to the 900g steak which he saw on the menu a week ago and was disappointed to hear how often the menu changes.

Food and service absolutely brilliant and the cocktails were awesome. Decorations and thematic tone set were fantastic. Only let down was the music choice. Club music didn't really suit the vibes and kind of undermined the awesome decor and theming.
Still enjoyed it tho! Skul!

My partner and I have been here before and we enjoyed it. We told our friends about it and they wanted to come try it out. It took a while to organise but we finally made it.

On arrival we had to wait a few minutes to be seen - I don’t normally mind waiting as I understand during busy times but this time was just a bit longer.

We all had the beef rib and pork belly with potato, carrot and broccoli sides. The broccoli was the winner out of the vegetables, though they were all fantastic. My beef rib was tender and amazing to eat. I also managed to steal a bit of pork belly off my partner and that was pretty tasty also.

I went to the bar to order a few cocktails; the lovely blonde lady behind the counter was amazing.
She was very helpful in navigating me around the cocktail list and also the whiskey. Two thumbs up for her!
I didn’t get her name, but I would like to Thank her!

Over all we enjoyed ourselves, the food was great and atmosphere also.

Overall it was a good experience from the cocktails and the atmosphere. Food was great but unfortunately we had to wait almost 40 mins for our starter ( oysters ) because i think our server forgot to put our order through.
He didn’t admit being wrong but i just knew it, i work in the hospitality industry so i know how much pressure it is when it gets busy but if he would of just told us he made a mistake we would of totally understood but instead he just blamed the kitchen.
I wanted this to be special as it was my fianće birthday but unfortunately that little mistake ruined a small portion of our night, apart from that we like the place and will eventually return but maybe not for a while

An amazing venue with a very unique vibe to it, almost as if you are walking into a nordic tavern from a legend. Drinking from the horns is a nice touch. The food is also high quality. However be prepared to pay a premium for the experience.

Food was incredible, and the atmosphere was great, with the exception of the music which end3d up being super distracting from allbthe awesome. Rap seemed a little off brand.... How does one get to Valhalla with hydrolic suspension, afterall??

Had an intimate family dinner for my birthday and was given nothing but excellent service from Manager Elizabeth and her staff. We required wheelchair access and the staff went above and beyond to make sure all needs were met. We look forward to our next feast.

Viking inspired, the venue looks great & the staff are friendly & knowledgeable. The food is generous in portion & full of flavours you don’t usually find in foods often considered ‘comfort’. Lots of quirky including hand forged knives & hand made crockery.

No beef on the menu. Extremely small servings (ribs) for over $50 not including anything else on the plate, ribs were grizzly.
$16 carrots (x2) as a side...$8per carrot!! I was expecting a lot more food for the price

Amazing food experience, we tried beef ribs and pork belly and both OUTSTANDING!! It's not a restaurant you can go every week because it's not cheap, but perfect and worthy for a special occasion! Very good customer service as well.

Booking was for 7:45, didn't get seated til 8:15. Our starter was over before our wine came (which we had to ask for!) Staff did not seem interested. When offering our knives, the time was as if they had said the same thing 100's and were fed up.

We have been to Mjolner once before and overall it was a spectacular experience. This time around everything was great except you could tell there were not enough staff on, as there were a few big groups as well as a function going on. This meant that drinks we ordered did not come for over 45min and when approaching our waiter (who took ages to acknowledge us), there was no recollection of our order and a bit of a dismissal of our slight frustration. Other than that, great time as per usual but if there are multiple large groups and a function or so, would consider putting another staff member on

Absolutely spectacular, and I’m picky.
My group of 8 had a blast.
Excellent music.
Excellent staff.
Excellent food and drink.
Loved all the special touches and there were many.

Even a birthday card from the staff to my partner which he thought was fabulous.

We will be back and referring everyone.

Food was nice but for the amount of money we paid for our group of 15, it just wasn’t worth it.
This restaurant is suppose to be Scandinavian themed, yet the music you decided to play was RnB??? Where was the traditional Scandinavian music??
It’s cool that you can drink mead from a horn but that’s about it.
Honestly disappointed with my experience here. You could do so much better.

Hi Stephen, we are very sorry you felt disappointed with your visit. The venue is meant to be inspired rather than themed and the owner, who is Norwegian, feels strongly about the choice of music we play. Also, we serve many groups your size the set menu, which you requested to be optional and we were unable to do as Saturdays are our busiest days, and extremely rarely get complaints as to either quality or quantity. We'd love for you to give us another shot and hope you return. Skål!

Returning customer, food is scrumptious! This time around the poorest service ever received in my life! Shame! I booked the small team from interstate Xmas do, it was disappointing. Hoping for better service next time as the food is worth giving it another go.

Very dissapointing. Definately wouldn't go back. Overpriced and too noisy as stag do sat next to us which staff did nothing to try and quiet down- fine with noise but they were swearing loadly and clearly drunk which wasn't pleasant to be around. Food was very average and far too expensive for what it was. Staff friendly but need to be more disciplined with large rowdy groups. It felt like I was in a night club as opposed to a good quality restaurant and the unclean, paperless toilets didn't help matters. They also seated my partner and I on a table of 4 with another couple which was serously awkward for all parties involved- it's not McDonalds. Horns and a themed menu don't justify a poor experience.
