Disappointed last time we came ... thought we'd give it another chance as this has been our favorite noodle/dumpling shop for YEARS. Sadly it has changed for the worse. Table service gone, queue out the front gone, once packed out - now 1/3 full, slow to serve now, food very different .... sad, sad, sad.

Busy and food very fresh. A very hot day when we visited and the centre's air conditioning not able to cope so we struggled to eat much. No fault of the restaurant.

Cheap dumplings no worries as they are the tastiest around with a free frozen drink as well, Its not just the dumpling its got a great menu, its simple asian food done well and all the locals love this place as its always busy.

I used to work in Box Hill and often ate in the place now called RaRaMen. I think the texture of the handmade noodles might have improved in recent months, but the place is too chaotic for my liking. It's OK to have access to frozen drinks and sweet bean soup for 'free', but if the meal you pay for... More

Had a fried seafood noodles which had prawns (which was the best thing there) and fish cake. The fish cake was hard and rubbery and it didn't feel like a proper seafood meal even tho' it was the more expensive dish on the menu. The braised pork in noodles was much better. The red bean dessert, Chinese tea and slurpy... More

Has great selection of noodles, rice and dishes at a reasonable price. Comes with complimentary red bean dessert, slurpy or Chinese tea however was disappointed when at 12.30pm even before the lunch crowd started they did not replenish the red bean dessert even after being told it has run out. Service was not good either but then it's cheap.

This was once one of the better dumpling places in Box Hill Plaza however based on my most recent visit (have been there many times over the last 4 years or so) it seems to have lost its edge. It not that it not good - its just that the surrounding establishments are doing a better job. But if its... More
