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.

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

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.
