This was definitely some of the best service I've ever had in Sydney. Multiple staff members came over to our table, and they even signed a card for our anniversary. The ambience is just thematic enough to be cool rather than cringey, and there's nothing more fun than drinking mead out of a horn. A great experience!

My review for this time is a little harsh, first time i was there everything was 5 star. This time not so much, last time they had 4 or 5 beers on tap and a good selection of bottles to choose from this time no bottles and only 3 on tap not a good sign when a "high end" restaurant/bar runs out of the basic alcohol selection. Ordered the "featured" food of the day which which wound up being under cooked duck. I am no Chef but pretty sure under cooked bird is usually not a good thing..... THAT SAID the beef ribs were epic as last time and this time the same all kinds of epic, flavour, crunch, moist all at once and so tender that when i picked it up by the bone all the meat fell off.... which is a good thing as the knifes although they look cool and fun are as dull as a butter knife and if you ask for a steak knife all they have is there blunt selection or an actual butter knife.

So all in all go for a great beef rib and awesome wasabi potato with a side of mead from a drinking Horn and wielding a hunting semi blunt hunting knife... you will have fun.

Mjolner is just fantastic. If you are looking for a really fun, different experience Mjolner is the place. The food was great, especially the venison tartare. I will go back just for that. The service was impeccable. The ambiance was fabulous. It is not a cheap eatery however the quality is exceptional. we had the best time. 5 stars for sure! The only thing is I found the door hard to find....until I saw the Viking thing on the little wooden door. Loved drinking out of the horn too. Teat yourselves, you will love it.

Great place, food and atmosphere. The noise levels though was really bad on this night, as a table next to us were extremely loud and obnoxious, to the point where our conversations were constantly interrupted. I was disappointed that no staff member told them to keep the noise levels down for the respect of other customers, which is a result only encouraged their rude behaviour throughout the duration of our stay.

Mjolner had us at hello! From the discreet doorway entrance, into the moody lit bar, it was otherworldly. Drinks were diverse and delicious, everyone tried something new and were not disappointed. The menu catered for everyone's taste, some more adventurous than others. The trout won over the unlikely guests who were smitten with the bone marrow, short ribs and roast pork belly. When dinner was laid out, it was of feast proportions. The sides were ideal, and the brussel sprouts the best we'd ever eaten.

Malheurseusement les plats ne sont pas à la hauteur de la note en sortie de table. Mal assaisonnés et très gras, mal cuisinés. Je recommande au gérant de miser plus sur un bon chef que sur le marketing du restaurant.

Unfortunately, the food was not at the level of the bill. I highly recommend to the restaurant to focus more on the food than on marketing...

Fantastic restaurant suitable for dates, friends catch up, all the way to family and group celebrations. Love the ambience, food and service. As the restaurant is in the basement there is very limited reception signal which forces you to social with your mates.

What a cool place! It was a little tricky to find but that’s where the fun started!
The venue is cosy with ambient lighting. Service was very good. The menu is small so I expected that the food was going to be exceptional as this is usually the case with small menus - few options done very very well. The beef was perfect, the vegetables amazing! But the pork belly was quite difficult to chew through. Perhaps a few more hours slow roasting and it would’ve been spot on perfect.
The drinks were fabulous. Prices are excellent, nothing too expensive.
Overall I would definitely go back, in fact, I’m planning on going back very soon to try the other dishes.
I give it an 8/10 :)

I’ve been wanting to go to this place for a while, and what better time to go than to celebrate my birthday. We had a really good toke at Mjølner and look forward to coming back again! The shot at the beginning was a nice touch, the food portions was very, very generous that we didn’t even make it to desert. We had the beef rib and the pork. My only comment would be the crackling on the pork was a bit chewy by the time it got to us and lost its crackle. Aside from that all the food and cocktails we had were delicious.

I was super surprised at the end of the meal to get a small shot glass and birthday card (which all staff signed) as a gift; that was so thoughtful and a great way to remember an awesome night.

Food was delicious cooked brilliantly with a unique variety, theme decorations created a wonderous atmosphere, service was impeccable, and waitress was happy and friendly, knowledgeable with giving the experience a more personal feel, to give the best recommendations of drinks and food choice. However a little pricey.

A Viking-themed restaurant with delicious food and a great atmosphere.

This was my first time to Mjolner - the boyfriend has recommended it multiple times since we started dating as he loves it here. We had the bone marrow for the starter. This exceeded my expectations and it is a sure favourite - I will definitely order it again. We shared 2 mains - pork belly and rotisserie chicken, and 2 sides - baked potatoes and brussell sprouts. Didn't expect anything over-the-top with the mains but they were quite filling and they did satisfy. The sour cream with the baked potatoes were fantastic and I had to ask for more. Never had brussell sprouts before my visit - can't say they'll be a regular in my kitchen but I didn't mind them. The size of the sides are big enough to share 1 between 2 people (waitress did mention this, but we greedily ordered 2 anyway!)

We thought they could've had better choice of music - maybe something more Viking-like rather than 21st century R&B.

I had mentioned in my OpenTable reservation that the booking was for a birthday (my boyfriend's). Didn't think much of it but then my boyfriend got a little gift from the staff which was a nice touch to our visit.

Overall 5/5 would recommend.

Mjolner is a great place to dine and relax with friends. The food was very good, the atmosphere great. Very smart and clean. Service was friendly. The fact that the waitress checked the watch before asking us if we wanted dessert was a bit of a thumbs down. However, I would go back and would also recommend it to other people.

I have been here before and the place is fantastic with the speakeasy vibe.

The only thing that I didn't enjoy this time around was our seating location. We felt as though we were in a walkway. Apart from that I would recommend this place to everyone and anyone.

Service is fantastic - food is fantastic - vibe is terrific.

Well done.

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
