Supernormal offers a personal interpretation of chef Andrew McConnell’s favourite Asian eating experiences drawing on his years spent working and living in Shanghai and Hong Kong.

The Supernormal menu comprises old and new favourites, drawing on good times at Golden Fields over the past three years and the Supernormal Canteen over the Summer.

Supernormal is open from 11am Monday to Sunday. Our menu is available all-day for you to enjoy as much or as little as you like; a long lunch, mid-afternoon drinks, a special dinner or just a coffee.

Supernormal offers a broad range of Asian focused dishes, delicious wines with a story to tell & great drinks. A beautifully considered space with a long open kitchen bar, karaoke fun downstairs and a variety of seating for groups and private parties.

Private Dining

Whether celebrating a special occasion with family and friends or hosting a corporate event, Supernormal can accommodate all your special event needs.

I think the supernormal is very special. supernormal is abnormal. we ordered two sets $69, which included their classic meal. But I think that order the dish may be better. Because the oyster is my favirate which is not in set. And their coffee is not good but cheaper than other restrant else.

We had a lovely meal. The only negative aspect was that the air-conditioning was so cold blowing down over our table we asked to move to the bar. I was so chilled it was putting me off the dining experience.
Had I known I would have brought another layer of clothing.
It was a great meal

Loved the food;-fantastic flavours, great for sharing with friends. I would definitely go back. The service was very good,- friendly and warm, & given it was a very hot day the Waitress was very attentive at toping up our water, & bringing glasses of ice. -I would only suggest that it would have been great to simply have had a jug of ice water on the table.

The service is impeccable and the food is simply the best Japanese! So flavorsome. Light enough that you can try loads of dishes and still fit in several plates of pot sticker dumplings ;)

Something to be said for a restaraunt that continually better their menu and continually employ quality waiters that know the food and are enthusiastic. And even better when they have Asahi Dark on tap that is equal to the stuff in Japan.

The food here was interesting and tasty. However, they ran out of the dish we wanted to order (katsu sandwich) after we put our order through, so that was a shame. Considering we booked, I would have preferred to sit on a table facing each other rather than side by side at the bar so would probably make a special request for this next time. Thanks!

The food was not worth the $95 we paid. The service was so slow,
we waited 50mins between courses for a set menu. Even when I asked them to hurry up they still couldn't pick up the pace. Waste of tine and money.

Food was small proportions especially the lobster roll . It was super tiny. Super super small. Prices are not reasonable. However there was a hair in my lettuce salad. Super basic. Rice was different. It was too chewy. Rice should be soft and fluffy especially if you guys want to go for a Japanese aesthetic. Too many try hard wannabes . Cultural appropriation at its finest. Offensive menu. Go to china town and there will be proper Asian inspired food. Why is this even so busy and over hyped?

Service was outstanding.

Food was average and not worth the price, I expected more from the reputation it has, along with McConnell’s other restaurants being outstanding.

Tasty food, in a trendy joint. Good for a business lunch. Some of the dishes are a little on the pricey side when you are paying for simple things like dumplings. The lobster roll is great, as well as the spicy chicken salad. Lamb was only okay, beautifully cooked, but did not work with the szechuan chillie in my opinion.

This trip had prawn and chicken dumpling, beef pan fried buns, lobster 🦞 roll, duck bo, fried chicken and splashed down with some great wine. Thank you once again for a great lunch
