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.

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.

Great food and service (although sometimes a little over zealous service when it is not particularly busy). Amazing food choice. The tuna, swordfish & snapper, fennel & preserved citrus was particularly delicious.

All the staff were welcoming and friendly. The service was excellent without being intrusive. Food is interesting, delicious and beautifully presented. Drinks are a little on the expensive side but overall a great venue.

The food was amazing and the chef was accommodating to our requests to change a couple of dishes on the banquet due to our dietary requirements. I only drink Moscato or Southern Comfort and neither was available at this establishment which was a little disappointing. The food would bring me back, but be prepared for lots of noise as it is quite a rowdy place.

Food and service brilliant
A large, quite rowdy table nearby
Plus a table directly adjacent where one of the two was loud and didn’t appear to draw breath for over an hour - pretty unfortunate. Could the tables be slightly further apart !!?

I have eaten here on many occasions.
Supernormal never fails in its presentation and quality of dishes.
The staff are always friendly and prompt to attend to you without hovering or being imposing.
It’s a noisy restaurant, but that tends to fade out once you loose yourself in the flavours.
Highly recommend.

We had the banquet and the food was amazing. They were happy to swap options for 2 of the people with dietary requirements. Really good place for lunch with friends.

Food was just incredible. Loads of flavor and innovative presentation. Service was a bit rough around the edges and harried. Not refined like SN’s upscale cousin Cumulus.

Good food, but has become alittle overpriced. Some dishes such as the lobster roll have gotten smaller.

Visiting Melbourne and Supernormal was recommended. Absolutely obsessed with the flavors and bar tenders. Had the lamb with greens + coriander paste on fresh bakes sesame bread. Dumplings were delicious as a starter. Skip the crispy Korean rice cakes, there are so many other delicious things to try.

We went for the tasting menu as first time guests. Felt rushed at the beginning, courses kept coming. Finally on the last course and dessert did we have the opportunity to slow down a bit. Waitresses and the Sommelier Steph were great. Steph gave us tips for Adelaide. Would definitely recommend!! Thank you!!

Excellent food and initial service. However, no one seemed to be in charge of our table, and while the amazing food came to us at lovely intervals, water and drinks were not taken care of. Grabbing passing staff worked, and they acted quickly.

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

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.
