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 12pm 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.

We were recommended to eat here and it was fantastic! Waiters are very helpful in making sure you don’t order too much! Food, wine and service was excellent. Well worth a visit.

The $75 7-course degustation was worth it! The lobster roll is always a winner but everything else didn’t disappoint. The service is top-notched too. Supernormal will always have a special place in my heart.

Bloody loved this place, we went for lunch but it would be an epic dinner. Chic restaurant with excellent food. Pro tip: Save room for desert! Sadly, we did not.

The food and service are always excellent and if you're on the way to the theatre the staff always make sure you're out the door on time. The only very slight fly in the ointment is a turbo powered air con system which means you'll need to take your cardi.

I have been to supernormal before and again it didn’t disappoint. Am organising a school reunion dinner there in March and went to check out the food before the reunion. The 2 people I was thoroughly enjoyed the food and service was excellent and the place was buzzing.

Our first waiter was very disinterested. We asked for an extra hot coffee. It came out luke warm. We informed him but no offer to replace it just a shrug. Fortunately he left early on and the second waiter was much better. We were expecting more from the food, I would put it in the ok category. Sounded great but did not really deliver flavour wise.

Great staff, outstanding service even on such a busy day, we were well looked after and not forgotten about. We were not rushed to leave the restaurant close to our time limit. The food was amazing, we chose the banquet menu as it was our first time dining there, and it did not disappoint! Will be back to try some things off the a la carte menu!

We will come back many times I hope. Everything was great that we ate. We didn't over order, in fast we ordered less than the waiter suggested, and it was fine for lunch. Food was a bit slow to arrive, but apparently the kitchen lost our 'docket'. But it didn't matter, there ware plenty of interesting people to watch.

A lovely meal with beautiful flavours and great to see some attention paid to dessert preparation. More choice of fish options would have improved the menu and experience and more clarity around gluten free options would have been good for our group as we had one person who is celiac and one person a pescatarian.

Yes it was a hot summer day but it was far too cold inside the restaurant. We went for lunch and the meal was nice, as expected. They recommended 6 plates to share between 3 and so we did. It was too much for us but it was no trouble packing it away. Portions were just larger than we thought. Had it been a more comfortable temperature inside, we would have had a better experience finishing the meal.
