This was one of the best dining experiences we have had. Situated in the main street of Tanunda one enters through an old cottage expecting a cosy Asian restaurant with small rooms. Indeed the small rooms are there in the front but the place opens...More

We have dined at Fermentation previously and due to the number of people on the table we had to order the $70:00 degustation menu, so this time being 4 of us for Sunday lunch we were able to order Ala-carte. We arrived on time and...More

3 couple out for a Saturday night dinner. We were not aware that it was a degustation-only service, and having just had a similar service at Hentley Farm at lunchtime we were not up for it. The server repeatedly told us that degustation was “mandatory”...More

We had a dinner for 6 and enjoyed it immensely. The staff were very attentive without being over the top, each of our 7 courses were delicious and the wine list expansive.

FermentAsian was recommended to us and it did not disappoint. We had a number of tasting plates and enjoyed them all.

This was magnificent! The service was friendly and genuine. The food was beyond delicious. The (recommended) wine was scrumptious. Book a table and go - I cannot imagine someone who likes Asian food (and who does not) being disappointed.

We stumbled upon Ferment Asia by a happy accident. Staying in town for two nights we strolled up the street and found the restaurant open and a table or two awaiting us. Lucky it was a Thursday in Winter. Judging by its popularity these guys...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.
