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.

We had a great lunch at Supernormal for my husbands birthday. We had the banquet menu and enjoyed every dish. The lobster roll is as good as everyone says! Plus we also had my 18 month old son with us and even though I was worried about having a young child with us we were made to feel so welcome. We’ll definitely be back!

The Supernormal experience is always 5 Star. I recommend trying the banquet as it’s the best way to sample the signature dishes.... lobster roll, slow cooked lamb and the Sydney rock oysters are amazing.

Single tables are too close together, I felt like my neighbours were on top of us.
Unfortunately we didn’t get to enjoy and finish the last meal of our banquet as we were running late to the theatre, however we asked for our dessert to be takeaway.

We had Linner ( 3.30pm) for husbands birthday. Fabulous in EVERY way from the very experienced staff who were both knowledgeable and friendly to the food that was beyond delicious. Highly recommend the Lobster Rolls, Dumplings, Slow Cooked Lamb and the amazing Parfait for dessert. YUM can't wait to go again.

Top shelf team, from booking through to saying good-bye. All right on the money.

We were very late getting to our booking, but did not present any of the team with an issue. They moved and changed all parts to fit with us.

Brilliant wine list, with a clearly engaged and assionate Somm. Made the lunch a real discovery with a couple of stunners in amongst it.

All that before you have to even consider the food, its clearly a winner restaurant. Busy, but not deafening loud, it had all of the boxes ticked for us.

This restaurant has a real buzz: going from nearly empty at 1230 to full by 1pm. We had a banquet menu which was sensational: each mouthful a surprise on the palate not to mention visually interesting. Despite the fine food, the atmosphere is relaxed. Wait staff were attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. The wine was recommended and fabulous. My only downside was that I thought it was a touch pricey: particularly the water and wine. Having said that, I will be going back and so will my friend who’s determined to bring her husband so he can also experience a feast for the senses.

Couldn’t fault our lunch at Supernormal.
Wait staff were attentive but not in our face.
Food was delicious. We had steak tartare, prawns, dumplings, lobster rolls, fresh greens, fish and ginger dessert and toffee dessert. A few beers to begin and a soft red.
It was a Friday lunch and we weren’t rushed.
Perfect!

We were in Melbourne for a three day break from work in Sydney. I love Cumulus Inc and a chance to fit Supernormal into our schedule was grabbed. We loved all the food! The selection was varied and large, with plenty of healthy and vegetarian options. The vegetable dumplings were oh so plump with beautiful flavour and the steamed greens oozed freshness. Just yummy!
All the wait staff were helpful and friendly.

I invite friends to Supernormal for their birthdays, and it never fails to impress. When the hostess found out it was my friend's birthday, she brought out a special treat with a candle on it. It made her day! The lobster rolls are amazing, and we have tried nearly everything else on the menu - all excellent!

We flew down from the Sunshine Coast that morning and we just had to come to Supernormal for the second time, this time for lunch. We introduced the restaurant to a couple of friends and we all loved it. The tasty aromatic dishes is simply first class. The staff were also very knowledgeable and proficient. A must for anyone's visit to Melbourne.

To be honest! Whilst the food was good it deffinently didn’t take my breath away. Pretty pricy for what we got. The duck was very disappointing. Generally pretty flat afterwards as I was so excited to go.

This was my first time at Supernormal and we had the banquet meal for $68 plus an excellent bottle of Soave. This was a great way to sample the dishes and all very presented beautifully. The food was fresh and there was a selection of Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai and Japanese style dishes. The menu starts of with entree size options and then moves to more substantial dishes. The salted caramel dessert was a brilliant way to top of the tasting menu. I felt satisfied but not stuffed full. I would definitely come back - my only criticism is that the place was a bit noisy but not unbearable. I would see this as a lunch place rather than a dinner venue or business meal venue. Not private or quiet enough for business discussions. The service was friendly and efficient. The staff were knowledgeable about the dishes.

The food did not taste fresh to us. It did not feel like it was cooked with effort and the dishes looked messy on the plates. We were one of the first customers there for the day so you would have assumed there was enough time for the dishes. Disappointing. We had heard amazing things about it but the dishes were certainly not up to scratch in our view.
