Review of Zing Vaa Restaurant in Sheffield

Nestled away from the busy Sheffield streets is Zing Vaa, an absolute gem of a restaurant, which has a long and happy history with city residents and visitors. Offering a huge range of beautifully prepared and authentic Chinese dishes, Zing Vaa restaurant in Sheffield is the oldest and most respected restaurant in the city centre. A family-run business for more then 50-years, the popularity of this dining establishment has never dipped, in fact it has continued to grow in strength! Current owner Alan Chung has run the business for the past 12 years. He has taken great care in updating the dining room, creating a relaxed and sophisticated venue, whilst still maintaining the original charm established by 3 generations ago by his forebears.

As you would expect from a restaurant of this caliber there is a mind-boggling selection of dishes on offer. Each one is made fresh to order by highly skilled chefs who use only the finest ingredients, guaranteeing intense, aromatic flavour with every bite. Who could resist starters like crispy wan tun dumplings stuffed with prawns and deep-fried, or the gooey, sweet barbecued spare ribs which always gets diners licking their fingers! Chinese restaurants in Sheffield have a huge reputation to follow, as Zing Vaa has created a range of exciting sizzling platters, which come highly recommended. Try the fillet steak roll, which has slices of fillet beef rolled with king prawn, marinated and cooked in a Cantonese sweet fruity sauce. Anyone looking for a bit of indulgence should try the satay king prawn sizzler which sees juicy king prawns, onions and green peppers all cooked in a thick, rich satay sauce. Not only do these dishes taste great, but there is an impressive theatrical element to them as well. Dishes that will definitely impress!

Regular diners of Chinese cuisine will be happy to see old favourites on the menu such as crispy aromatic duck, lemon chicken and the addictively spicy Singapore fried vermicelli. There are also a great range of meals for vegetarians such as the sweet and sour pe pa tofu croquettes, mashed yam and tofu mixed with finely chopped vegetables, deep fried and served with a sweet and sour sauce. The classic monk’s delight is also on offer; this blend of fresh and dried vegetables is a tasty classic even meat lovers will adore. When it comes to restaurants in Sheffield that not only produce exceptional food, but that also create a fun, lively atmosphere, Zing Vaa is unquestionably top of the list!

If dim sum is your thing then make sure you try Zing’s extensive set menu. Choices like pork and prawn dumplings (siu mai), beef meatballs with Chinese greens, roast pork buns (char siu buns) and custard cream steamed sponge rolls your taste buds will be entertained for hours! An established history with the culinary elite of Sheffield is a real testament to the quality of Zing Vaa Restaurant.
