WOW. I would give 10 stars if I could. We heard of the hype & of a recent award & thought we'd like to see if this restaurant lives up to it's reputation by celebrating a special occasion here. And absolutely it did, in fact it surpassed it. We had 3 entrées as suggested by Aruna - the pork on... More

The entrée of Vietnamese fresh spring rolls took me straight back to Hanoi in 2003. This restaurant has charm, wonderful service and excellent balance of flavours with its food

My husband and I ordered the taster menu with paired wines , WOW , one of the best and unexpected food and wine experiences so far here in Australia. Thank you to Grant and his team for making a most enjoyable evening , shame we are off to pastures new might just have returned to do it all again.

There are no words to adequately describe this restaurant. We had the tasting menu to get a little more variety and could not have been happier. The food was gorgeous, the wine list extraordinary and the service really lovely. If you visit the Barossa, this restaurant is a must !!!

What a sensational little restaurant. The food is magnificent, the wine list is never ending and the décor simplistic but tasteful. A foodie experience that we will remember for a very long time.

One of the best Asian restaurants I have been to. We had the tasting menu and needed some changes due to allergies, this was easily accommodated. A wonderful meal, great service and all of the staff were fantastic. Try this place, you won't be disappointed

Celebrated our 20th Wedding Anniversary Dinner the other night. The location, the food and the service were outstanding. Every dish that we shared exceeded our taste expectations and will certainly see us return in the future to dazzle our taste buds once again. Thankyou Michelle & Ian Woods

Following a recommendation we tried this restaurant last night and it was fabulous! We had the taster menu which made life easy for us and we loved everything we ate( I didn't fancy the squid so asked if this could be avoided and it was no problem to them) A very interesting back story. Would highly recommend! Good atmosphere as... 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. 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.
