What a refreshing restaurant, a modern take on Asian cuisine with fresh crisp flavors, attentive staff in a modern setting. The menu is small but executed perfectly while the wine menu is honestly the largest I have ever seen. Our group of four each chose a entree and mains and had it come out one at a time so we...

I have been wanting to try this restaurant for some time now as it has such an awesome following. And I guess after reading so many favourable reviews I was expecting great things but I have to say my over all experience was pretty average. First of all I think the restaurant itself is somewhat cold and very generic in... More

Our Thursday evening Chef's Tasting Menu dinner, was brilliant! My French relatives who accompanied us were truly impressed with this gorgeous menu.Service was most attentive and we didn't have to wait long for the various dishes to appear. They were all outstanding. We loved chatting to the chef Tuoi after our meal. We will definitely be back!

You don't expect such excellent Asian food in the Barossa Valley but this is it.The food was lip smacking delicious. Crips, clean and full of flavour, My standout was the Grilled SA quail with pomegranate salsa. There just wasn't enough. The Salad of grilled Mayura Station Wagyu beef with chilli jam was a close second. The front of the restaurant... More

The Chef's Tasting Menu is outstanding. The food is sensational and the wine list is one of the most extensive you will find. Staff are friendly, helpful and very attentive. This deserves a place as one of Australia's best regional restaurants. If you haven't made a visit here, put it on the 'must do' list. I guarantee you will not... More

Excellent food, bursting with flavour and an encyclopaedia of a wine list, quite easily navigated with the assistance of a passionate sommelier. Great value for quality food and wine.

Description
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.
