The restaurant, a beautifully considered space, offers a broad range of Asian focused dishes, delicious wines with a story to tell & great drinks.

Our party was all accommodated for with no issue. The only course we thought could have been better for our Coeliac friend was the dumpling course. She was given a somewhat bland salad as an alternative to the dumpling. We thought that a GF version of the dumpling or a rice paper could have been done instead of the salad.

Another comment from one guest was the high price of the wine by the bottle. Hard to find one under $100.

Otherwise the everything was great.

A special place to catchup with friends and family. We had the $75 banquet which was more than ample. Wine was excellent, but a little on the costly side.

Lobster roll is the best and would be happy to eat that for entree, main and dessert.

The lobster roll was definitely a highlight, but everything else was too pricey for what it was. The portions were quite generous but I don't think I would go back.

Everything went perfectly except for the fact that we were asked dietary requirements through the booking reservation, phone and when we arrived there. We said that we had 1 vegan with us and yet we were served without a vegan option in the start. So my sister, the vegan, ate this tofu avocado without knowing there were bonito flakes in the mix. Thinking we’ve said our dietary requirements So many times, expecting them to be aware of it. Although it was fixed by another server, she had already ate it. She was then served with vegan options after 2 non- vegan dishes. Maybe just a bit more cautious on things like these. I’m glad she wasn’t anaphylactic or anything like that. Great chefs for great flavours and platings☀️

Food was amazing and fast. The service was impeccable when we got it but unfortunately they were lacking when it came to drink service. We had preordered the banquet and had 3 dishes on the table before we were offered a drink, then it took 10 minutes to get it. They topped up the water every 5 minutes but we would have to flag them down to order more drinks, it was odd and a bit of a drag on a special occasion where we were all celebrating. Can’t fault the food quality or food service though.

Incredible experience. Service was great and the food was some of the best Asian Fusion I've had. The Lobster rolls were incredible. Wine Pairing was spot on. I would say a must do dining experience if visiting Melbourne.

Food was sensational but it’s very noisy. Would definitely go back but maybe better for 2 people as it was difficult to have conversation across the table when there was 6 of us. It was difficult to hear what the wait staff said each dish was.

We're not Melbourne locals and we were really glad to be back after a few years! Service was extremely attentive ensuring our table was clean, water was always topped up. Food was excellent. It was quite busy so food service was a little bit slow for a banquet menu. Was really looking forward to having the peanut butter parfait again, but this time wasn't as magical as my previous experiences, I think it was a little bit too salty and the crumb base was a bit chewy. It was still great but the first time I had it, it blew my mind, not quite the same experience this time.

Food was good. Variations provided for dietary needs. I liked the big round table for a business lunch. Main drawback was the requirement to book a banquet menu for a bigger group which then took way too long for a business lunch (12.30-3pm!) Needs to be 1.5hours max please!

Loved the overall experience but insisting on a group of 6 having the banquet seems a bit much. 10, for sure but 6 seems a fairly manageable group for a la carte.

Supernormal is a Melbourne institution, and it's easy to see why. The food is delicious and accessible, while the service is truly outstanding. This is about as far from the stuffy fine dining experience as you can get; instead, staff are casual but very attentive – with a seemingly psychic ability to anticipate your needs! My group booking went very smoothly, with all dietary requirements taken into account and a change in the number of guests in our party no trouble at all. The restaurant was easy to reach by phone and confirmed everything with a call to me after I booked through OpenTable, which was reassuring. The $65pp banquet menu is also very good value for money. Great wine and cocktails too! We loved our meal at Supernormal.

We were very disappointed to be seated at the table we had booked well in advance and then sat for 17 minutes until we finally asked if we could order a drink. This was particularly annoying as we had been told very rudely as we sat down - here is the banquest menu - you have to be out by 815pm

I booked a group reservation for a busy Saturday night and I was highly satisfied with the service. Our waiter was accommodating to our group and even requested a sommelier to assist with our drinks. The $69 banquet was delicious and the portions were appropriate. Our table was located at the back of the restaurant so the noise wasn’t too bad. Overall I would definitely recommend Supernormal and would love to go back.

An interesting night with a few issues for a $1000 experience:
1. Bookings didn’t state that a banquet was required or that we had to leave by 8pm
2. Daughter was served a dish with nuts after we clearly specified it was an allergen
3. Children served fish after we asked for no fish option
4. Noise and size of table made it impossible to have a conversation except with immediate seat
Overall not nearly worth the cost for the food, service or ambiance
