    We have been wanting to come here for so long and maybe our expectations were too high. Two things stood out- we weren’t told about the 2 hour limit until we had 20 min left, they brought out 500ml of beer 6 min before we were asked to leave and they expected one poor person to quickly drink this. We should have been told this at the start when we sat down. Secondly I ordered the beef which was delicious but unlike the pork you don’t get any sides with it, instead your told there’s a delay if you want to add a side . Would be nice if the dish came with something rather than just the meat.

    Incredible experience. This isn't just a restuarant but an immersive experience. So much food! In fact - too much food, we had so much left over! Drinks were incredible too, not just the drink but the way that they were presented, in their containers as well as in the story behind the name of the drink. Very appropriate place for a special occassion, they even give a gift for the birthday recipient!

    Food delicious as always. But waited at the front desk to be seated for 10 minutes, whilst multiple staff walked past. Then we had to leave as soon as the 2 hour sitting was up (even though the first 10 mins were wasted)

    It was a very fun experience in general. Just wish there was more options for the set up menu and the timing to be more flexible as we arrived before the booking time, but the table got ready a quarter past and staff even rushed us through saying we were running out of time and had to start eating quickly. I would come back to try again with some friend, but not for birthday celebration.

    Went to Mjolner for a fun dinner with a group of mates. Restaurant has a great viking drinking hall/cellar atmosphere. Multiple groups were dining at the same time as us but the noise volume never seemed loud or difficult to talk over (unlike many restaurants). Lots of fun moments in addition to amazing, hearty food- a shot of mead to start things off, drinking horns, 'choose your weapon' knife selection and so on. The viking theme could be really cheesy, but Mjolner manages to strike the right balance between a fun experience and a legitimately good restaurant.

    The experience and aesthetics was cool but its really a do it 1 time and done thing. Wouldn't go back normally and with such poor service I definitely wouldn't now. In there defence we had a new waitress who didn't really know what she was doing but not her fault as she really didnt have much help. And the food is a bit over priced but worth going at least once.

    Booked a week in advance for a birthday dinner, requested a table against a wall or in a corner. Upon arrival was placed right in the bay middle of the room. Exact opposite of what I requested. When this was brought to the managers attention he said he would move us when a table became available. It was another 20 minutes (we were about to leave) when another table became available and we were moved. Food was very over priced for a basic pub meal and a poorly done one at that. Our quail was raw. The short ribs were tough and the sides which you have to pay extra for were disappointing. Broccoli was burnt so it was ashy as you chewed and potatoes undercooked. We spent over $200 for meals (even with the quail removed form the bill which they volunteered once they saw the state of that bird on our plate!) The cocktails were lovely and the ambience authentic. We were very disappointed. Wish we hadn’t gone on a special occasion, would not have been so upsetting. Would not recommend and will not return.

    This was my first trip to Mjolner Sydney although I have been to the one in Melbourne, so I knew what to expect. The front of house service staff were terrific and attentive and deserve a shout-out. The food is a bit hit & miss; we had the gravlax which was excellent, the beef rib which arrived warm (at best) and the chicken which was hot, but overcooked (although tasty). The vegies were great. Judged on food alone I don't think Mjolner delivers value for money (steep prices) but if you roll in the overall theme then perhaps the value improves. Mjolner is an experience (rather than just a food destination) and I think it would be far more enjoyable attending in a large group with an inclination to engage with the overall Viking theme.

    Andrea was outstanding waiting on our table, very helpful with cocktail selection from such a vast menu! All the staff looked like they really enjoy being there, the Viking dress wear by staff gave it an extra special touch. It was great dining somewhere where you felt welcomed than an inconvenience to someone else’s night. 10/10 experience, the drinks and main meals we shared were amazing too

    We love it here. Been a couple of times now. Proper tasty large portions of food , they know how to handle there meats and veggies but also land an amazing dessert. Interesting cocktails and just a fun night out from the welcoming toast to choosing your weapon , we always leave full and happy with great memories (don't drive you'll want to try cocktails and coma out on food)

    We managed to score a booth in the corner that I swear must be the best seat in the house. Felt very lucky! All the food was immaculate - oysters were DELICIOUS. We had the beef short rib, we wish we’d also had the second main too as couldn’t stop thinking about it but we’re told one main and 2 sides are usually pretty filling. Next time we’ll leave room for the extras as want to try everything! Beers and the whiskey with our boilermaker were spot on as were the cocktails. Dessert was an experience. Sadly the only slight on the food factor as the cake/donut was fairly dry even with the alcoholic fire sauce (haha). Was hard to eat into the pineapple slice with a spoon Would definitely come back. all the staff who served us were warm and welcoming.

The staff were amazing, and even gave us a present to celebrate my Partner and I's special day. It was amazing from start to finish, and I couldn't have picked a better place to celebrate a special occasion & milestone. Thank you so much to all the Mjølner staff and management!

    Good food - appalling staff. On arrival, waited in doorway for ~10 minutes to be seated. Despite many tables being available we were ushered into the bar for 30 minutes by a very rude manager. Waitress fumbled opening our bottle of wine for 60 seconds until I had to take it away from her an open myself at the table (traces of cork in wine from corkscrew damage). Fire alarm went of (very loudly) for 10 minutes in the middle of the meal, and despite it instructing "evacuate" staff insisted we didn't leave our tables (they're lucky, as we would NOT have come back). After 1 hour of waiting at our table for appetizers, we asked waitress to check-in on food, and she had forgotten to place our order. My wife had to leave before mains came as had been far too long waiting. After mains, we waited another 30 minutes for a dessert menu, which never came. We provided feedback to manager that we were fairly unhappy, and he was extremely rude and unreceptive of feedback. Will never come back, and am cancelling my 40 person Christmas party this year I was planning to have here.

    Thank you so much to the staff for making my mums Birthday so special, from the starting shots in little glass horns to the smokey whiskey shot out of a flamed bone marrow, the delicious food and of course the mead out of a horn, we had a fantastic evening! Our waitress was fantastic (I am so sorry darling but your name escapes me a few days later! but thank you, dark hair, tall!) Every aspect is catered too and you really are transported into another world. Bonus points for the super thoughtful Birthday card that the staff signed - you are all legends! 100/100 will be back again!
