    Excellent food at a great price!

    Excellent sweet and sour prawns and chicken curry!

    Very good food, attentive service. Recommended!

    Excellent food and service with a smile at Zing Vaa. Great atmosphere. Great waitress, who helped in every way. Deffo going again and again.

    Great food and good service

    Food was great. We had the Szechuan Banquet for £14.00. With a nice bottle of dry house white wine the bill was less than £40.00. The room could have been warmer and the service faster, but we would definitely like to eat here again!

    Staff were great, attentive & helpful. The food was delicious and plentiful. Great value for money.

    Authentic Chinese, however, the service was poor and the food was over seasoned, far too salty.

    Went for a birthday celebration and had a great time! Table for 12 including highchair was not a problem. Fortune cookies and chocolates finished a tasty feast of dish after dish coming out of the kitchen. We have been going for about 30 years and always have great food and great service!

    Excellent food choice at Zing Vaa!

    My husband & I visited Zing Vaa on Saturday 9th July as a birthday for my husband. We travelled from West Yorkshire as we were staying in Sheffield for the weekend. We were not disappointed. The staff were polite, courteous and very helpful. We had the salt & pepper squid, Dim Sum and spare ribs, all were delicious. We alo ordered Crispy duck & pancakes which were also very good. The mains were equallly as good and the twice cooked pork was lovely. The only let down was the Singapore vermicelli which i've had better. All in all if we are back in Sheffield we would not hesitate to go back. Thank you Zing Vaa for a lovely evening.

    The Zing Vaa has a good reputation in Sheffield with good reason. The staff are friendly and helpful, it's a lovely restaurant and the food really good. It's definitely one I will be returning to and will struggle not to become a regular at!

    Everything was 5 star as always. Cant wait to go back

    Everything was 5 star as always.

    As good at Zing Vaa as it was the first time we went.

    Great again!

    Fantastic food and speedy service. Cannot wait to go again!

    My wife couldn't make it as she'd damaged ligament in her right knee. I asked the restaurant if we could take out and they were more than happy to do so, and really pulled out the stops. We as always really enjoyed the meal even though we didn't get to go out.

    Excellent food yet again.

    Another superb meal and night at the Zing Vaa. It's the number one chinese restaurant in sheffield

    Excellent service and food as always. cant wait to go again. Myself and my wife have been going for the last 15 years!

    Excellent food, service and value. Only knocked a point off the overall as the toilets are pretty cramped although clean. Hadnt been to the zing vaa for many years and returned because of gig at the plug across the road but glad I did as is as good as I remember it. Must be a good sign that half the restaurant was filled by chinese people. Also had wheelchair user in our party and easy access at the back and help from staff. Will be back for more banqueting - great choices.

    Excellent meal - far too much too eat! Takeaway provided and swapped a meal in vegetarian choice with no problems... highly recommended - and really excellent value...

    Our visit to the Zing Vaa was very good. The place was very clean the staff very good and the food was also very good we will return to the Zing Vaa it was very nice.

    Always seems so busy, went in for a spot of lunch and when we were leaving at 3 there were still people walking in, not bad for a Monday. Easy to see why though, very good authentic Chinese, pleasant surroundings and friendly well presented staff.

We say…

Situated on The Moor, in the centre of Sheffield’s shopping district, is Zing Vaa; the oldest and most famous of all Chinese restaurants in Sheffield. Zing Vaa first opened its doors more than 50 years ago, though the restaurant is still going strong with a loyal customer base that is being added to daily

The restaurant has been passed down through generations and Alan Chung has owned and run Zing Vaa for the past twelve years. He has brought the dining room up to date, now with a very pleasant dining space that can seat up to 110 guests. The venue is unassuming and the entrance is easily missed, but step downstairs and the dining room itself is welcoming and spacious, featuring authentic Chinese artefacts that bring a small slice of China to the streets of Sheffield. With a range of table sizes including the very popular circular dining tables, Zing Vaa are able to cater for a wide variety of group sizes.

Zing Vaa uses fresh, authentic ingredients and every dish is made to order, ensuring that diners get their food at the moment when flavour, taste, smell and temperature are all at their optimum. You can expect to find many classic dishes on the menu, with starters such as Aromatic Crispy Duck and the Hot Mixed Platters proving particularly popular. Main courses showcase popular Chinese dishes such as Lemon Chicken, Beef in Oyster sauce with mixed vegetables and Szechuan-style King Prawns. The ‘Sizzling dishes’ are also firm favourites with diners, served on a sizzling cast iron plate with vegetables. Zing Vaa's goal is to reveal the diversity of Chinese food to the people of Sheffield; there's something for everyone, from diners opting for a classic to those who want to try something completely new. 

The service at Zing Vaa Chinese restaurant Sheffield is extremely hospitable, with attentive waiting staff who are incredibly helpful and polite. With opening hours giving you a full 12 hours of service every day, there's no reason not to drop by! Dining at Zing Vaa is a delight and can be enjoyed whether you visit as a couple or as a larger party.
