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.

It was great to take my brother there for a birthday treat! Amazed to be recognised by a waitress as I’d been before a couple of months ago. Food was delish (though the fresh seafood option at $28:00 was over-rated). The lobster rolls were so tasty. Our waiter was attentive and personable and I had already recommended to numerous friends! We were seated at 12:00, before the lunch hour rush and service was prompt😊

Supernormal is a great place to introduce friends to Asian fusion food. One of my all time favourites as always so reliable - good service, food and atmosphere . The lobster rolls and twice cooked duck should always remain in the menu !

We had dinner there recently (but not the first time we have dined at Supernormal) and it was excellent as usual. The food and wine were exceptional . But the wait staff often passed us on their way elsewhere and so it we did have a bit of a wait to order but it was worth waiting for!

Loved our visit to Supernormal. Our group of 4 had late lunch (2.30pm) and it was a delicious way to spend a couple of hours on a Saturday afternoon. We went for the large banquet and it did not disappoint! From the Kingfish, the beef buns to the crispy suckling pig it was well worth the money.
I did find the booth seat a little squashed against the table to be totally comfortable so next time I will request a normal table with separate chairs. Will be back for sure :)

While the service was good the food did not live up to it's reputation. The quail was dry and over cooked and the other meals had no real punch.
The over all flavors of the dishes we selected were Korean based and really not that exciting!
A real shame as we were looking sooo forward to have dinner here after the all it publicity.
A very costly mistake!
Sorry to say but Supernormal is nothing but just normal!
Your local Korean down the road is fare cheaper and most likely better!

I had booked a group of 8 for a client function and we were seated on a lovely round table in the centre of it all. Noise level was high but overall this could be ignored as it’s a high energy place to go anyway. Our waiter Foster was lovely, and attentive and accommodating to dietary requirements. Another excellent experience at Supernormal. Thank you.

Only issue was we asked the waiter to provide a selection of meals. I think they didn't need to provide the scallops as well as the seafood platter as there were scallops on that as well.

The banquet meal was delicious. There was a lot of food with the banquet set and we were full by the end of the meal. There was a slight mix up with the dishes, where one of the included dishes didn't come out. They later served the missing dish and the waiter was very apologetic. Good dining experience. Would definitely go back 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
