pre-dinner themed cocktails at the bar were a good experience
the restaurant's overall theme is a good fun and enjoyable
the banquet is the only option if 10 people or over... (no flexible at all)
bone marrow focus for entree and desert
some people didn't eat much of entree and desert due the bone marrow focus, that's why we asked to have flexibility with the banquet, but no luck
if you don't like bone marrow, don't go with more than 9 people...
the lamb and beef main were delicious, but we have to order extra lamb
the hostest was a bit rude (American lady)
the swedish waitress was lovely, with a bday card and shoot glass as present xo
overall good viking experience

Our experience was amazing, the care of the waitstaff and chefs was phenomenal! Went in with high expectations and there were not only met but exceeded! Would go there many times more for several different occasions and just for a good night out. Not too pricy and you get more than what you pay for, could not recommend highly enough to anyone!

Went with 4 friends for my birthday, had wanted to go for a while, initially recommended by friends. Easy street parking outside, big wooden door to get in, v authentic to theme. Greeted upon arrival with free mead shots in themed shot glasses. Friendly and efficient staff throughout meal. Shared bone marrow entrees- interesting and tasty. We had ribs, chicken and fish- all cooked well and tasty. Shared bone marrow choc mousse and crumble for dessert - recommend the latter in particular. Drank honey mead from horns which was fun! Staff happy to take photos of our table throughout the night as we posed. Upon finding out it was my birthday, staff presented me with signed card and shot glass And gift-lovely personalised touch. Would recommend this place! Booking required

A real let down for us. Our waiter was great but the food was so fatty. We were near a table of smashed blokes who were so wasted but kept getting drinks. Totally killed the night. Nobody should have to sit near guys screaming and punching each other.

Fantastic. They really followed through with the theme in a non-tacky way. The food is superb and the environment surpasses expectations.
We had 2 starters, 2 mains, 2 sides, and 2 cocktails and that was a little bit much for 2 people. But it all tasted delicious.

One of the few restaurants in Sydney with this price point where the staff shows passion on the items shown in their menu. Staff are very helpful, food is fantastic, ambience are a plus for those who follows Norse mythology.

It's also hard to say what would be your favourite dish in this place. All of them were prepared and cooked very well.

Staff were lovely, beers & meads were fantastic and the food was to die for!!!
( If I could use profanity in a public forum ... I would say "Mjolner Sydney was EFFING unreal!!" ... but I shouldn't, so I won't )
Thanks Mjolner, we'll be back

Great food, great staff, great experience.
The only thing I would suggest changing is the music as it kills the vibe a little listening to rap in such a Viking style atmosphere, something softer or Norwegian would be perfect.

Been meaning to try this place for months. The menu options might be small, but the flavours of the meals is absolutely sensational. Fabulous cocktails and beer and wine options aplenty. Attentive and knowledgeable staff. Choosing your knife option is a good laugh...

The service we experienced at Mjolner was competent and professional, and never too far away.
Food we ordered was good, but not exceptional, and came in large portions. Of course, there was much of the menu we didn't try that sounded delicious.
Prices were probably on par with what you'd expect from a city restaurant, so they were quite high. Thankfully, you don't leave wanting.
My biggest criticism is the music choice. As you descend the stairs upon entry, greeted by the melted wax of eons and longboat prow, your inner Norse stirs with some ancient longing of spitting meats and rolling fogs, then BAM - hip hop and rap. And I don't mean some Snoop sprinkled between an assortment of other, conversation level easy listening, I mean a relentless string of mono-genre mood killer. This single factor turned what could have been an experience into just another restaurant.
Still, worth a visit.

From choosing my own weapon to drinking beer out of a horn. Everything was fun and exciting. Great food and impeccable service to top it off. Not to mention creative cocktail menu. I had the Burning Glogg, it was theatrical and one to be remembered. Love the whole experience. Five stars out of five!

Food was fantastic, ambience amazing as always and staff were incredible. They really made our evening, whether it was recommending drinks and even tailoring them to our tastes, to just having a good chat. The surprise gift for my brother's birthday with the card signed by staff was so lovely and an unexpected delight. Such a great night.

Brought my girlfriend here for her birthday. The experience in the restaurant was fun and unique.

We had Katie as our waiter and she was very professional and friendly. When I mentioned it was my girlfriend’s birthday, without asking, she came up with a small gift and a nice card signed by all the staff in the restaurant. Many props to her

However in terms of the food, it was very average for the price we were paying. The entree was average and the flavour was plain. The mains were okay. I got the ribs and some parts of it was very dry.

Other than that, I had a great time and was very happy about the service. However the food can be improved

We went back to Mjolner for our Anniversary after going last year and finding it was a great place for us and once again it did not disappoint, our server Mirvil was fantastic he was attentive And efficient very fun and answered all our questions with a smile and was just a great cheerful guy he really made our night perfect the food was as usual beautiful and the atmosphere was great it has a really warm cosy feel without feeling crowded and stuffy and the Viking theme is awesome we love "choosing our weapons" and the way the plates are made for sharing it is a great way to interact with each other, at the end of the night the staff gave us a beautiful card signed by the staff for our Anniversary
We cannot wait to celebrate with you all again you guys went above and beyond and we can't recommend you guys enough 😍😍
