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

Great experience, such a cool space and real attention to detail will make it a memorable occasion. Portions are generous and although the menu is small had good options.

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.

I visited Mjolner with my boyfriend for our 5 year anniversary. We had such a memorable night with delicious food and drinks, but most importantly such amazing service. We were blown away by how special the staff made us feel. Before we left, they presented us with a card signed by some of the staff and 2 mjolner shot glasses to take home. We couldn't thank them enough for how special the whole experience was.

Great place and loved the experience.
Food was great but the service let it down a little bit.
Slow drink service and minor error. Whilst very small, but when they all add up, it felt like the staff was new or unmotivated.
Simply relying on the novelty of theme and food quality to make it a good night.

Overall a great night, but the staff could have helped bring it up.

We had the banquet. I have said i wouldn't recommend, but i really wouldn't recommend the banquet, but the other meals that came out looked great. The food in the banquet was delicious but it did feel like there wasn't enough. Wasn't keen on either of the desserts, not sure that vikings ate pineapple and we were a bit over the bone marrow in the end. The mains were delicious but it wasn't a lot, esp for non seafood eaters, and could have done with a bit more vegetables other than potato. If i go again it will be to order the meal of my choice. The service, ambience and everything else was great!

Wicked place! Highly recommend for people who enjoy high quality food and drinks, I’m actually thrilled to spend money here because although it’s pricey, It’s good value.

Table staff are uber professional and welcoming, bar staff seemed rather unfriendly though, but not enough to ruin the evening. Overall I loved the place and will be back again.

This is the best place I have been to in Sydney. The experience is fantastic and the food is better. An unusual door on a street, walk though it and you are transported to a Viking feasting hall in Valhalla.

We visited Mjolner for a birthday and loved the viking atmosphere. The pre-dinner digestive honey mead drink was lovely and the cocktails were delicious. We loved drinking beer from horns and choosing a big viking knife to eat our meal with. The food was beautifully prepared and tasty. Unfortunately, the service was extremely slow, we waited approx 40 minutes between our starter and main and the waiter who was looking after our table seemed to completely ignore us and the surrounding tables who were all keen to order drinks. The table next to us caught his attention and made a complaint about their food not arriving and we chipped in that ours was also missing in action. Due to the extremely slow service we then had to move to the bar for desserts which wasn't ideal.

Pluses: The menu was well explained by our server, and the welcome shot (with options catering for both drinkers and drivers) was a nice touch. The food was delicious and well proportioned. We all enjoyed our food. The server’s choice of red wine for me was delicious! Being able to choose a main meal knife from the leather belt was cool.

Opportunities: Our chairs weren’t especially comfortable. I don’t mind a bit of ambient lighting, but I’d also like to be able to see what’s on my plate. My particular seat was, depending on my body position, either full spotlight or dark shadows. I tried the beer horn, which was a nice novelty option but a bit smelly.
