The Lobster Roll was outstanding and the pork cooked perfectly. The service was attentive. We ended up going back for lunch on the last day in Melbourne.

We are in Melbourne for a month and are trying different restaurants. We especially love asian food. We went to Supernormal after visiting the Aquarium. Granted we made a late reservation on the spot - and got one - but had to sit in the barstools facing the kitchen. It's entertaining and interesting but not intimate and the chairs are uncomfortable after a short time. Get a reservation earlier than we did and get a table if possible. The menu is a little confusing, it was hard to know what to order. The waiter was willing to describe them to a point. While we were sitting there watching the cooks we got curious about the Szechuan noodle salad with chicken because it looked so good as they assembled it, and ordered it. It is delicious. Spicy, full of crisp kale, really interesting. We got the mussels - they were good too. then the Asparagus with soy glazed shiitake, and they were delicious too. Last, we had the chicken and prawn dumplings. By then, although each dish was not huge, we were full! Everything was fresh, interesting and very good. For lunch we paid $60 without any drinks.

The restaurant we had chosen wasn’t open on a Monday evening in Melbourne so we just picked Supernormal randomly as we were walking away disappointed.

What a wonderful surprise!! Not only did they have a table free in an obviously very busy restaurant but we discovered really excellent, creative and interesting food and impeccable service.

The food was genuinely delicious and inventive. It was all superb but the Korean rice cakes were an absolute stand-out for me. I could’ve eaten them all day. And the signature dessert - peanut butter parfait with salted caramel and soft chocolate - was truly outstanding.

And it wasn’t too expensive either. A really great find and I’d be delighted to go back at any time.

ambiente- very noisy

food- average "fusion" asian, nothing wonderful

portions- tiny, $17 for a lobseter roll with very little lobster meat

$16 for 6 small prawn + chicken dumplings

$40 for a small 150gram pork chop

rip off prices, another over hyped Melbourne place with "share plates"- entree size portions masquerading as "main " serves

would not return
