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.

Waitress was an absolute delight, she knew both food and wine menu well and was able to make alternative choices for those with dietary restrictions, with no problem.
have been craving the food we had and cant wait to go again.

Faboulous food there wasn’t one thing on the menu we didn’t like our wait staff very friendly informative and many great suggestions couldn’t fault anything. Also was a pleasure to be able to have a conversation without loud music blaring not sure when other restaurants are going to realise that majority of diners are there for great food conversation ambience & attentive service without the intrusion all of which Supernormal achieves. One of our favourites that’s why we have returned & will definitely be returning again. Cheers Susan

Was really impressed by both the food and the service. I was in Melbourne for business so I had a very tight schedule and the waiters were very accommodating regarding my time constraints and gave advice on what I should order. What I found particularly fantastic (and unheard of) regarding service was that they were able to make half serves of some dishes for a solo diner so that I could order and try more things on the menu. Would easily recommend to anyone, and I can't wait to come back here next time I'm in Melbourne.

We had the excellent value banquet for $69 each. It was ample and neither of us could have eaten more. The food is creative Asian fusion with a strong Japanese accent. All was delicious - the lamb was beautifully cooked but a bit oversalted. Wine list is excellent and the waiters are knowledgeable. They had run out of the excellent Soave but recommended a suitable alternative Italian white wine. I would definitely come back.

A friend who lives in Melbourne recommended Supernormal, so I booked a table as I came from Sydney. I requested for a proper table as my friend whom I was catching up with would bring her baby. I was greeted by a man who initially put me in a tiny table between two other couple, despite mentioning the request for a spacious table. He was not the friendliest host. Our waiter was warm and friendly luckily. The food was interesting and tasty, but $17 for one tiny lobster roll!?! Are you for real! We were still hungry after spending $117 for four tiny menus and just a mocktail and cocktail. Unfortunately I would not be back - not worth the value at all.

Lobster roll was incredible, as was all of the food we had; but it was definitely the stand out. The roll is really small though... I originally suggested my friend and I half it. Absolutely get your own as they're bite size.

Also the desserts are incredible. Great food, nice ambience. Would recommend.

They sat us at counter with reservations then forced us to spend over an hour mostly waiting by delaying our food. Didn’t ask if we wanted a long lunch at the counter. When we asked for our food it still took another 20 minutes. Pretentious with disappointing result. Staff was friendly but distracted.

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.
