In the summer of 2013/14 Andrew McConnell launched the fun-times test kitchen Supernormal Canteen. The loud and lively eatery was packed nightly and was the free-wheeling precursor to the hugely successful Supernormal, Flinders Lane. In winter of 2017, McConnell brought it back , and it is St Kilda's Fitzroy Street that gets to have all the Canteen fun.

Think casual good-times in a distinctly Tokyo setting while the delicious scent of yakitori smoke fills the air. The relaxed and versatile menu lends itself well to a quick snack or party pit-stop, or you can go all out and build a feast that might hero dumplings, cup noodles and fried school prawns alongside a selection of sticks (yakitori) and of course, the New England Lobster Roll.

I really enjoyed my meal at Supernormal Canteen early last Saturday evening before a hysterical evening watching The Kranksy Sisters at the nearby Alex Theatre.

At Supernormal Canteen, Andrew McConnell has woven his magic again. The service and food were excellent. Loved the dish of Cucumber, dashi & ogonori and the Baby turnips, furikake & miso. Hooray for making cucumber and turnips the hero of dishes!

We sat in the window which was great. We thought it was way too loud further into the restaurant, and dark (I heard someone say 'I can't read the menu the light is so low') ....so I know if I book again I'll book that window spot!

We enjoyed all the flavours. I don’t eat meat so the fish was great. A few more veggie options would be good.

I ordered the small fish shape dessert for a friends bday and was a little disappointed. Maybe I should have clarified what this was before.

Overall wonderful and will be back

The service and ambience was great but I felt the food was disappointing. No amazing flavours like i expected. I was using the condiments on the table more than I have ever done at a resteraunt.
The wilted brocollini was overcooked and grey.
Won't be going back

Great space, service and especially the food. Banquet was excellent overall. The 2nd fish plate was maybe lacking something (we were told of a fish swap) but the lead up of flavors was perfect.

The only small downside was the room was cold (well progressively got colder), we kind of were happy to get out of there in the end so that should be addressed.

We had the banquet and all the courses were delicious but they came out just a little too quickly to be able to fully savour and enjoy each dish
