“Excellent”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

It's been a while since we visited this restaurant. But we were not disappointed we ordered the banquet meal for two and asked to change one of the main courses which was not a problem. The starter which included the usual prawn goats etc was hot and very tasty, the duck was sublime and the main course which included king prawns, deep fried beef with chilli and garlic was amazing. The restaurant has been around over 20 years and I know why

“Quality. Cheap”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Meal for 4, 3 courses (granted soup & ice cream/banana fritter for desert) 3 pints and a coke came to £32!

Get here just before 6pm, we did accidentally.

How can you complain at that price?

The soup was alright, slightly watery, served with burger bun.

Mains were a good size and did also taste very nice so good job here.

Desert was ice cream, can't really go wrong!

Sooo..Go eat! :)

“A never-to-be-forgotten evening”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

My wife and I recently returned to Sheffield to celebrate the day when we first met as students 50 years ago. Our first date in 1963 had been at the Zing Vaa so we just had to celebrate our 'anniversary' with a meal there.

When we arrived the restaurant was very busy and the customers were predominantly members of the local Chinese community - a good sign that the food would be authentic and of high quality. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and we were given plenty of time to select the dishes from the long menu. When there is so much delicious food to choose from, there is nothing worse that being rushed into making a choice. Eventually we made our choices - the crispy aromatic lamb with lettuce as a starter followed by plum duck, stir-fried king prawns with green peppers In black bean sauce and the Zing Vaa special Chow Mein.

The food was attractive, succulent and full of flavour. The starter was exceptional - a very simple concept of slivers of aromatic lamb wrapped in fresh lettuce leaves but so appetising and a great introduction to what was to follow. The portions were generous and we were glad that we had not ordered a fifth dish - something easily done when faced with so many tempting options.

It was a great meal, not just because of the circumstances, but because of the quality of the food, the ambiance of the restaurant and the friendliness and attentiveness of the all the staff - especially Bonnie. Thank you to you all.

It is a pity that we live so far away but we can guarantee that we shall not need to wait for another anniversary before we return to Sheffield and the Zing Vaa.

“Excellent Food, as Always”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

A very busy Friday night in Zing Vaa and the atmosphere was great. Have been coming here fairly regularly for twenty-odd years and the same staff are still around. Once you can grab their attention, the service is very good - we were a little slow getting started almost to the point of getting annoyed but once we`d called them across and ordered, things ran very smoothly. The food, as always, was excellent and we`ve rarely had a complaint over the years. Certainly not the most attractive of places from the outside but has a genuine, authentic feel inside. Recommended if you like good, authentic Chinese cuisine and I should think that when the improvements to The Moor area of Sheffield are complete, this place will be even more popular.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed April 25, 2013 via mobile

I was very disappointed with this place, the food seemed very over spiced, with very strong flavours. The only decent item we had was the dimsum.

The atmosphere was also lacking. Service on the other was good. The waiter seemed very knowledgeable and helpful. I don't think I will be returning.
