My husband and I ate here a couple of months ago and recently had dinner here again. It's nice to go back to a restaurant after the first time, to see if it is just as good the second time round. We were not disappointed. Staff remembered us (we don't live in Tanunda), always smiles, excellent service and the food... More

Ferment Asian had come so highly recommended, with such raves I felt it couldn't possibly live up to it's reputation. The reality exceeded our expectations. We dined on a busy Saturday night however the quality and pacing of the night were perfect and we never felt rushed. We were seated in the new section of the restaurant which comprises a... More

Amazing, we have been to this restaurant several times and absolutely love it. The food is sensational and the service is amazing. Can't fault a thing, the 7 course is the way to go, good serving, and by doing this you get to taste all the delicious food on offer. Everything is so fresh and cooked to perfection. The wine...

We made reservations here on the advice of the managers of our bed & breakfast. We had the chef's tasting menu along with the wine pairings. This was one of the more inventive, delicious and inventive meals we have had and the sommelier/waiter was so knowledgeable and flexible that it made the wine experience intimate very special. Don't miss fermentAsian... More

This restaurant came highly recommended but even so we were blown away by the gastronomic delight we experienced, the night we ate at FermentAsian!

I'd heard lots of great things before finally visiting FermentAsian and none of it was wrong. Great atmosphere, excellent and informative service, a wine cellar to die for and amazing Vietnamese food. Absolutely worth a visit. Dress well and bring the c/c. You wont be disappointed.

This restaurant is very popular so make sure you book ahead. They have a fantastic wine list to go with some very tasty food. We had quail as well as betel leaves with pork to start - both were very tasty. My husband and I then each had the red duck curry which had the most amazing flavour. The duck... More

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.
