Ferment Asian is a family run business. The food we usually have is Asian tapas style. Traditional Asian/ Vietnamese is available. The wine list is superb and extensive having many local SA wines and a big range of French and European. Food excelent and as good as anything I have had in Melbourne's east CBD district.

Wonderful South Asian menu with exquisite tastes. Unbelievable wine list! The tasting menu is brilliant adjusted to the foibles of diners to make it a real gourmet delight. Try it with the wine matched. The sommelier is terrific, again adjusting to the quirks of the diners to provide wonderful, unusual matched wines. Service as good as any great restaurant -... More

We enjoyed a delightful family lunch in this superb restaurant in Tanunda. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The service was excellent, slow but perfect for a long Sunday lunch. The wines were recommended and matched the food well.

We visited fermentAsian after hearing only positive reviews from friends and family and like them were highly impressed. The food was beautifully presented flavoursome and authentically Vietnamese. Next time we would opt to go with a larger group to experience more of the dishes and also more wines from the inspirational and extremely diverse wine list. The wines by the... More

Restaurant is in a lovely old house. The staff are very knowledgeable and attentive. Entrees were stylish and innovative. We shared snapper yellow curry and massaman beef curry for mains - very fragrant sauces and good sized servings. Wine list is quite intimidating but the staff are ready with helpful suggestions. We enjoyed the experience.

Despite a statewide blackout, fermentAsian somehow managed to fill their restaurant with happy diners and feed them a beautiful selection of pan-Asian delights. A combination of tea light candles and torches did not do visual justice to this great food, but the cheerful staff, amazing wine list and happy taste buds left us smiling in a way that most others...

So many things to love about this place. The beautifully updated cottage is so warm and friendly, the knowledgable and plentiful staff, the classically set tables, a wine list to study and explore, and a menu that screams flavor..... I recommend the feed me option and ask for some wine to match from anywhere in the world and sit back... More

What a top experience! Service - excellent! Friendly, knowledgeable, professional! Food - it has been the best the 4 of us have experienced and we loved the sharing philosophy, bringing out one dish at a time with time to savour and appreciate between. Internals - lovely amount of space between tables, lots of different areas - class! Would we come... 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.
