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.

Take your tastebuds on a journey. Best Asian food I have eaten in a long time. Exciting menu, quality dishes. Do not miss the betel leaves with sticky pork. Stand out dish of the night. The pork in ginger and orange sauce also delicious. The service is high quality and the wine list something to experience. Only wish I had an extra night in the Barossa so I could return for a repeat performance!

Best meal we had while in Tanunda. Staff fantastic and the food was brilliant. Everyone, even the cab drivers, recommended it to us. Now I’m recommending it to you. Go and enjoy!

The food was tasty and well-executed. I had the chicken dumplings (delicious, if a tad over-salted), the fish curry (which was excellent) and then the pistachio tart (on the small side for the price).

The service was, however, very poor. I was put into an ante-room at the front of the restaurant which was being serviced by two people, and couldn’t be seen by staff in the rest of the restaurant. It made it very difficult to attract attention. I was sitting for almost 30 mins after my main course waiting for the empty plates to be cleared, despite both staff members coming into the room at various points to deliver food to the two other tables. They didn’t take the initiative to clear, despite me being obviously finished. In the end, I had to go out to the main restaurant and ask another staff member to send someone in to clear and to bring the dessert menu. It was a real let down.

Food was absolutely fantastic but we were in the back room right near the kitchen door and it was incredibly noisy. Drinks Service was also a bit slack - we didn't get offered another drink after our first round and we were there for 2 1/2 hours!
If you're in a small group maybe ask for a table in one of the front rooms.

Our fourth visit to this amazing asian fusion restaurant and a must everytime we visit the Barossa. The food is wonderful and the wine list is massive. We usually have a local bottle from the Reisling Freek which goes excellent with the food. Portions are generous and you only have to ask if you have any allergies and they will accommodate you.
