About Supernormal - City

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.

·Dined a day ago

I didn't find the food unusual. We had the Szechuan chicken salad, Caviar starter, Chilli Dumplings, Duck Bao, Lobster roll. They were all really average. The best were the chicken salad and caviar we had at the start. But the Duck Bao and Lobster roll was a complete let down. It was recommended by the waitress as the best and popular dishes. But the duck is dry and pretty much tasteless. The Lobster roll was something I can get at a food court, nothing special again. The price is too expensive for what they offered. I won't be going back again.

Visited Supernormal for a Sunday lunch. Love the relaxed, comfortable feel of this place. I would return to try more dishes. Sashimi was fresh, wagyu beef bun served with hot and very juicy. New England lobster roll - dressing is a little bit too much that overpower the lobster. Staffs are friendly and service is great.

Interesting menu, though the value for money questionable for a couple of the dishes of our group e.g. the raw seafood selection on ice - 3 tiny bits of seafood for $28 - a bit rich. Very noisy, so the hard-of-hearing will struggle.

The stand out food in melbourne - the peanut butter parfait was so good went back just for it and bought the cookbook so we could make it (or try to!) in London. The staff on both occasions were super and so helpful. Thank you Bridget and Bobby! Go, go, go!

I enjoy the lay back atmosphere of Supernormal and especially the Tapas style menu. On several occasions we have left it to the wait staff to put together a 6 course Tapas meal for us and it never fails.

we had a lovely experience, although we ate too much! Food was excellent and so many different flavours. Wine was great and well priced. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. We were on a time line with a show to get to and everything was perfectly timed. Would like to come back and spend longer enjoying the food.

Surprised by the good service and fresh take on Asian dishes at this restaurant. They have struck a good balance between being contemporary whilst still staying true to the Asian dishes. Would definitely come again.

Supernormal never disappoints. The now famous dishes - lobster roll, and the wonderful fall apart in your mouth lamb, the fresh sides and the creative desserts make this my go to restaurant for business and pleasure.
Eating at the Bar allows private conversation and an interesting view of the kitchen.
Wonderful!!

Supernormal has a great customer service and the ambience which is suited for the young crowd. It's hip and the atmosphere is vibrant. I highly recommend the lobster roll. It's fresh and absolutely delicious. Most seafood dish looked amazing. I didn't quite enjoyed the fried rice cake as to me it was too sweet and difficult to chew. Otherwise the cocktail was refreshing and the overall experience was a positive one.

We were given a gift voucher which prompted us to go to Super normal for lunch.
Overall the food was a creative interpretation of Asian food but I was disappointed in the Dumplings which came swimming in a strongly flavoured sauce spiked with a lot of chilli.
This completely masked the delicate flavour of the prawn and chicken dumplings.
Wine prices are ridiculous which we felt keenly especially as we have just returned from a month in Europe where we had excellent wine for no more than 5 Euro a glass.. yes a full one not the amount poured which was well below the marker on the glass! I'll be sticking to Chinese tea!
