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.

Enjoyed the dumplings and tonkatsu sanwich! The beef bun was bland and dry though. Cool place for dates, informal work lunches or group dinners

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.

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.

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

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.
