Address : 70 Pitt StSydney, NSW 2000
For a true Nordic experience this Scandinavain themed restaurant will not disappoint. While the entrance to the restaurant might seem a bit suspicious with a long winding corridor leading to a security door, inside is where the true Viking like inhabits gather. The vibe at the restaurant is a very Northern feel to it with wooden minimalistic furniture and Edison bulbs hanging from the ceiling. However, it is the menu that is absolutely exquisite. From cranberry jam, dill potatoes and ofcourse Swedish meatballs along with gingerbread and Lakris Brulee, one this is for sure the food is spot on. A popular recommendation is the classic Scandinavian fish soup which is not overtly creamy and rich. Its more broth and prawns garnished with herbs.
