Attention bartenders!

Supernormal is calling you!

Supernormal is a lively, all-day, Asian inspired restaurant with a contemporary Japanese aesthetic. The refectory-style dining room is flanked by a long, open kitchen and bar; downstairs lies a secret space for events, parties and karaoke. Supernormal’s menu is influenced by the cuisines of Tokyo, Shanghai, Seoul and Hong Kong. It celebrates the notion of shared feasts via a selection of classic dishes alongside some new and inspired interpretations.
