What a great Asian meal. It was truly a fusion of various Asian cuisines . Hard to know where to begin, we had the fix menus for two. Every course was exceptional!

The restaurant is amazing. I have been trying to go for 5 years. It really delivered. Staff so friendly. Food so fresh with really amazing flavours. Wine list is like a Bible. I wish I lived in the Barossa- but I will be back. Can't wait.

We went here in a party of 12 for my daughter 21st birthday. Organising it was difficult to say the least as the owners don't seem to do communication very well. When my first email went unanswered for several weeks I rang and had to resend the email which they said they didn't get. They then replied to the email... More

Had the degustation menu with 3 entrees and 4 mains sampling s Was really delicious and my only concern was that the meal would be substantial enough Not a concern that lasted as I struggled through the last 2 courses because they were so good

I hate to say anything bad about fermentAsian, but I always write the truth in my reviews, so I'm going to start with the negatives, as did our evening. We arrived for our booking, and checked in at the hostess desk. We were quickly, POINTED to our table, and told "your table is right in there". I stood for a... More

This is the second time we have visited this restaurant and it did not disappoint. We ordered a chefs tasting menu. the food was amazing. The standout dishes would have to be the pork and snapper curry, and of course the black sticky rice desert. The wine list goes on forever and the somellier is very helpful. I highly recommend...

We decided to take the chef's suggested full menu with three entrees and four mains. We also accompanied them with the suggested wine options. The pork mince in lettuce, Hanoi style fried spring rolls and quail were all amazing entrees. Sake, spanish port and sauterne were surprising with them but delicious. Mains of squid salad, duck breast, pork belly (the... More

Description
Small seasonal menu of Northern Vietnamese-influenced cuisine. The focus is on local produce, most of which is grown in the family vegetable and herb garden. The business also boasts the most comprehensive wine list in South Australia, with international focus on wines that harmonise with the subtly spiced Asian cuisine. Don't expect to find a large listing of the sweet-fruited highly-charged and alcoholic Barossa Shiraz's, but you will find pages and pages of Champagne, German Riesling, White and Red Burgundy, Beaujolais, as well as the most comprehensive listing of wines from new and exciting local Barossa, Clare and Adelaide Hills producers. A wine pilgrim's paradise established for the local wine making community, many of whom are seen each night enjoying dinner at fermentAsian. Note that the wine list was awarded the top wine list award in Australia in the gourmet Traveller Wine List of the Year awards in July 2016.
