Authentic Vietnamese in the heart of the Barossa

This would have to be my favourite restaurant in the Barossa. The food is sensational. I would recommend the banquet- each course is fresh and bursting with flavour. They grow their own greens and this freshness is obvious with every mouthful. My only gripe is that you can no longer BYO on Friday... read more

This would have to be my favourite restaurant in the Barossa. The food is sensational. I would recommend the banquet- each course is fresh and bursting with flavour. They grow their own greens and this freshness is obvious with every mouthful. My only gripe is that you can no longer BYO on Friday or Saturday nights.

We had the Chef's Tasting Menu. Every single dish and every mouthful was amazing! Devine! Brilliant wine selection, but you can BYO also. Five night honeymoon in Adelaide and the Barossa. This was our final dinner and exceeded our expectations! Absolutely outstanding!

Fantastic meal, fantastic service, definitely a must in Tanunda, even worth just driving up from Adelaide for this one.

A fantastic meal, took me straight back to my trip to Vietnam two years ago. Jeff our waiter/sommelier for the night was fantastic at recommending dishes and wines to match, no doubt a tough thing to do with a 71 page wine list. Nice setting, great service amazing food.

Good setting & excellent food at a reasonable price for the quality. Fantastically subtle mix of flavours. It deserves the accolades & is a must if you are in the area.

My partner & I celebrated her birthday at FermentAsia. The food was great, though perhaps a bit too much fish sauce in the first four dishes. We asked the Sommelier to match the wines to the food, at which he did an excellent job (the red sake was a definite find). I thought the pricing was very fair. If I... More

Five of us heard about Ferment Asia and thought we would give it a go. It is undoubtedly the best Asian Restaurant I have ever eaten at. We had the fixed menu of 6 or 7 of the chefs tasters and had no room for dessert. One of us did not want pork and they were happy to provide a... More

Upmarket Asian menu, not cheap, but locally sourced and family run by fastidious foodies. The wine book ( not list!) is ginormous! And includes the best European wines as well as the best of the local wines.

We book this restaurant before we left for our holiday and was really looking forward to going. We were very disappointed with the size of each dish there was four of us and we ordered eight dishes and we were all hungry at the end of the meal. There was not many local wines to choose from , which is... More
