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. 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.

An Asian fusion restaurant that nailed every dish we had. It was highly recommended to us and certainly didn't let us down.

It's a bit more pricey than your average Asian restaurant, but well worth every cent.

The restaurant was recommended to us by our hosts in Lanzerac before we left the middle east and thankfully booked us for dinner there in our last night in the Barossa which made the icing on the cake for our Barossa trip.
We spent three weeks in lovely Australia and dined at the finest restaurants wherever we went but FermentAsian was the best of all of them.
Before our dining experience here , almost everyone talked about it with admiration and looks on their eyes that they would love to eat there again.
They told us about the couple who started it , the Vietnamese wife who is a natural genius of a chef and the husband who is a sommelier started the place few years ago and still the talk of the whole valley.

We went for the 6 course tasting menu and had the amazing spring rolls and the duck and the curry snapper which were just perfection and joy on white plates , paired with mostly sacki to our surprise and joy ... we hoped we dined there every night of our three night stay in the Barossa.

The rooms are cozy and give you that warm minimalistic ambience and the service is swift and the price is very reasonable. Jeff our host and sommelier had extensive knowledge of his spirit and told an interesting story of each of the ones he poured us.

Definitely a MUST DO if you are in the Barossa. And book in advance.

We had dinner here tonight, the food was absolutely amazing, the staff lovely and the bill was completely reasonable. We asked to have them bring out the food and match the wines, best decision we could have made. Would DEFINITELY recommend to anyone who is in the Barossa to go and treat yourself to a delicious meal!!
