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.

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.

Food took an hour to come out over business lunch, and it was too salty.

Second visit and did not disappoint. This place is just fantastic. Service, wine list, menu. So much good in the venue. 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

Amazing. Having been here before I knew what to expect. Great cocktails and very good wine list. The banquets are great value for money, so if you haven’t been here before do one of those - you will not be disappointed. The kingfish sashimi is DIVINE.

Supernormal served me the greatest food that I have had in memory.

The staff were lovely, the atmosphere was welcoming and each course just kept topping the one before!

The whole trout with burnt butter was just so amazing.

Well done, Supernormal, a big round of applause to you all!

Would be better if they invest in high chairs for toddlers, and baby change table. Would make it more family friendly.

Delicious food. Great service. Only downside is it was quite hot and stuffy and the food kept coming out way too fast that made us feel rushed. I will go back though. Very nice.

Great location and service. Outstanding dishes
Excellent for lunch
Next time will be sure to order in a staggered manner to make sure the later / bigger and spicier dishes turn up last ( the dishes we ordered further down on the menu turned up first as were ready first - not a big complaint given the quality of the food but don’t assume appetisers turn up first ! In hindsight would have preferred it it the first waitress had made this clear as otherwise a bit odd not to communicate this at this calibre of this restaurant - am assuming they stick to the order if ordering the banquet set menu but still worth checking.... )

Love this place! 4th time we've been and it's just so consistent. Never disappoints. Love the staff, they always have great banter and are super attentive and knowledgeable. Every time we've been they are all flat chat and work super hard, yet they always have time for a little chat and a laugh at the table which we love.
The Somm is so lovely!! She is really helpful and remembered us even though they likely serve 1,000 people a week! Great service and a great wine list that perfectly suits the menu and atmosphere.
Food pumps out fast and is always delicious. Cannot go past the famous Lobster roll! But really, any other dish hits the mark. Won't disappoint!

We (a group of 5) booked in for the tasting menu on New Years Eve - it was brilliant. The food, service and atmosphere were all outstanding, and unlike most Melbourne restaurants, they didn't hike their prices up sky-high but kept their usual tasting menu pricing. Can't fault it.

Supernormal offers a good range of food mainly using sharing plates. We had 5 entree sharing plates ( my wife and I) being ouysters, dumplings, Seaford and 2 pork buns each and then we shared the lamp for the main course. The wine list is quite extensive and we did an early siting 5.30 so we could book

The food are avaerage for a Asian,nothing too special. The chicken salad noodle is my favovourite. The staff are professional, careful and friendly. However it is a bit overprice. You can can the same quality and tasteness in many Chinese restaurant.

It was busy and the service was not that great this time. It took me about 10 mins to grab someones attention after I was seated to get a drink of water. The food has definitely gone downhill. The lobster rolls weren't that great. There was not enough sauce in the lamb to dunk the sesame bread and the fish served with bones - really hard to eat. Super rich dessert , so sweet that I couldn't eat more than 2 spoons and the cocktail was very ordinary. Needless to say, when you spend so much $ on food and you walk out a bit disappointed, it doesn't inspire me to go there again. In a city like Melbourne, you need to maintain your food and service levels or you become history soon.

We celebrated our daughters birthday at Supernormal on Saturday for lunch and while the food and service were very good, we were disappointed with one particular aspect which was neglected.
As our daughter wanted the WHOLE family together we were most disappointed to find that there were no high chairs provided for her little nephew. This meant we passed the little man from one to another which is not ideal. A baby does not happily stay in a pusher for two hours! Also there was no change table downstairs.
Two simple things that would make a huge difference to a young family . We appreciated the colouring sheets and crayons for the girls so you obviously have some consideration for your young guests.
Please take a trip to Ikea and rectify the problem so as to make the experience more pleasurable for those with young children and your restaurant would be a perfect five.

It was great to take my brother there for a birthday treat! Amazed to be recognised by a waitress as I’d been before a couple of months ago. Food was delish (though the fresh seafood option at $28:00 was over-rated). The lobster rolls were so tasty. Our waiter was attentive and personable and I had already recommended to numerous friends! We were seated at 12:00, before the lunch hour rush and service was prompt😊

Supernormal is a great place to introduce friends to Asian fusion food. One of my all time favourites as always so reliable - good service, food and atmosphere . The lobster rolls and twice cooked duck should always remain in the menu !

We had dinner there recently (but not the first time we have dined at Supernormal) and it was excellent as usual. The food and wine were exceptional . But the wait staff often passed us on their way elsewhere and so it we did have a bit of a wait to order but it was worth waiting for!

Loved our visit to Supernormal. Our group of 4 had late lunch (2.30pm) and it was a delicious way to spend a couple of hours on a Saturday afternoon. We went for the large banquet and it did not disappoint! From the Kingfish, the beef buns to the crispy suckling pig it was well worth the money.
I did find the booth seat a little squashed against the table to be totally comfortable so next time I will request a normal table with separate chairs. Will be back for sure :)
