The wine saved their score

This is very good, but not special food. If they had other similar restaurants in the area to compete with, I'd like to think you'd see a very different menu. The wine pairings were exciting and service was strong and rich with knowledge. I wouldn't rush back. Barossa really needs stronger dining... read more

I have eaten viet food in Hanio, Richmond and Springvale. They have real viet food. Not like this crap place. Double the price with half the food. Every thing had chiili in it. They waitress said you can just take out the chilli. Not true. Everthing thing was in a salad. Chicken in salad etc. .

Outstanding wines, and the food was very good too. We gave Grant the reins to select for us from a very comprehensive wine list, well worth the punt. The man knows his food and wine.

Great super-fresh food with that taste that tells you the herbs have just been picked that day. Lovely friendly service, wine list to make your jaw drop.

Highly recommend the chefs tasting plates which is 6 courses. It was $164 for 6 courses and a bottle of Bubbly- we think it was well worth it. In fact we... More

Eating at fermentAsian is a delight not to be missed. Since the restaurant is now SO well renown you WILL need to pre-book. (We were disappointed some months back when we didn't make booking sufficiently in advance and therefore could not take visitors to the Valley there.) If you love amazing food flavours and you know you are coming to... More

Went to fermentAsian as a "birthday lunch" and after all the hype (of which I had heard) found it to be just OK....not memorable, and I'm not sure if I would hurry back. I thought all the food was "over coriandered" and although some of the food, very tasty, some was very average. Also thought the cost was pretty average.

My wife and I loved this place. On the last night of our stay in the Barossa, we were lucky to get a last minute booking following a cancellation. The food was simply beautiful. The staff were attentive and courteous. During the meal we met both Grant and his partner Tuoi. who came out of the kitchen to talk to... More

We were looking forward to dining here after all the rave reviews. Waited 30minutes for a prebooked table. Waited outside rather than in a skinny hall by the toilets. Had the $64.00 per head menu Started well Entrees were good but not mind blowing. Belly pork as a main very good but then had very average duck and chewy beef.... More

This is one of those restaurants where you keep finding yourself looking over the tables and seeing someone with their eyes popping, that is just before they melt into a grin with pleasure as they savour the amazing new combination of flavours.. “I want whatever they’re having” you scream.. But whatever you choose on this amazing menu you will not... More
