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.

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.

All in all great meal for a reasonable price. I did the banquet deluxe menu, the only thing I would say was wrong and it wasn’t even wrong was that the waygu beef bun was a bit heavy.

Pretty excited to finally try this restaurant and was pretty disappointed. We chose the $69 pp banquet, very expensive for what you get, the menu is confusing...not really sure any of the dishes matched. Service was terrible, waitress appeared very unhappy to be there. Wouldn't go back for dinner - sorry!

Delicious food. Excellent service. It’s not the cheapest meal in town- but that’s not why you go there. It’s still value for money and it’s great. Thanks Supernormal, you never disappoint!

The food was clean and interesting but nothing I would be rushing back for. The descriptions often seem to outweigh the actual delivery and that can be frustrating. It is great being able to book a table and that is what drew me there as opposed to waiting in line at one of the many others in Flinders Lane offering similar style menus. I would definitely return for a quick and easy bar lunch but for a more leisurely lunch or dinner I am more likely to seek out something with a little more heart and soul.

I had heard about this place and finally got to try it - it's one of those trendy, laneway restaurants just behind the Westin Hotel. Excellent tasty food with good service. The entrees were excellent and they were also happy to accommodate the limited taste buds of our 8yr old. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful experience at Supernormal, the food was so good that my partner kept complimenting the whole experience whilst devouring the beautiful food. Service was impeccable, four stars for ambience as it was quite noisy, however, that’s to be expected when the restaurant is full house, a testament to its popularity. Well done for recognising the importance of both good food and service for an overall excellent experience.

We had the $69 Tasting Menu as we were a party of 6.
The menu read well and the food presentation and taste matched.
The serving sizes were more than adequate, and the feature lamb dish was an extremely generous serve.
Extensive wine list with quite a few reasonably priced options.
The wait staff were fantastic.
The venue was big, and therefore very noisy.
Highly recommended.

Supernormal has always been a favourite but was utterly disappointed this time and the last. Food and service were terrible. The lamb with flat bread was dry and sauceless. The entree was uncooked bok choy and raddish. Very disappointing as I have been here a number of times however won't be going back.
