Asian
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.

Amazing food and attentive staff. We bought a bottle of their signature gin as it was so good! Lobster rolls and dumplings to die for!

Food is very good. The service was disappointing. We were seated straight away and given menus but it took a very long time for a waiter to take our order. I tried to make eye contact with our waitress but she conveniently looked the other way when she came over in our direction many times. To make matters worse, we were charged a $1 per person to donate to Dine Smart. We would happily have agreed to do it but as a matter of courtesy, the waitress should have asked us first before putting it on the bill

I love the atmosphere at Supernormal. And have enjoyed a family dinner there at a circular table which was perfect as so inclusive.

The food came out one dish at a time. We would have preferred to have several dishes come out at once - say all the “entrees” together and all the mains together rather than get one at a time. I’m not sure if we could have requested this.

Had a great experience during a weekday lunch. Disappointed that their pork tonkatsu sandwich was sold out by 1pm, in the prime of lunch hour. The duck and wagyu beef buns were a delight (though duck was slightly too salty). Caramel peanut chocolate dessert was sweet and delicious, as was the cheesecake. Great ambience especially at the bar table overlooking the kitchen.

The food was delicious and the service was great. We arrived almost 30 minutes early for our booking and were happily seated by the welcoming staff. It took a little while to order but the raw dishes came out really quickly. The cooked dishes were a little slower. The dishes were relatively expensive for the size, but everything was beautiful and delicious so I'd say it's worth it.

We were so excited to try Supernormal, it was more than expected. We came for lunch, our waiter was exceptional, eloquent and funny. She made great suggestions for our food. The restaurant itself was such a lovely ambience, not sure if it would be different when bursting to the seams on a Saturday night, but Sunday lunch was very relaxing. Lobster roll, tried and satisfied! Dumplings and lamb were delicious but the side were incredible, just pulled the meal together. Thanks, we'll come again when we next visit Melbourne.

Fantastic service and wine list, amazing food. When you consider the premium tasting menu is 8 courses and only $95pp it’s quite good value and the staff are happy to do half courses / pours, which helps if you are a solo diner. Will definitely be back!

We were celebrating a staff birthday. She was born in NZ of Japanese parents so the menu had a nice Japanese connection. Without request a cup cake arrived with candle because the front of house overheard the conversation when we were being seated and when we ordered saki for a toast. Nice touch.
Excellent food, service and atmosphere.

Have been to Supernormal several times. As always food was amazing. My only recommendation is that the lobster in the lobster rolls was warmer. Sometimes they are room temperature which is fine but sometimes very cold like they just came out of the fridge. This makes the brioche bun cold and although they still taste amazing, I would prefer room temperature or warm.

Service was exceptional. The waitress who served us looked after us from start to finish, had impeccable knowledge of the food and recommended the perfect amount of food and combo of meat and vego options. A real highlight of our visit to Melbourne! Amazing!
