Bowls of Ramen and Bento boxes are all $10 at Ramen Ya, which is pretty average for a bowl of noodles in Melbourne these days. Their "specialty" is a charshu ramen. There are 3 soup bases to choose from : tonkotsu, miso and shoyu. The kids shared a charshu ramen in tonkotsu soup (which of course I tried!). The was a good size bowl of noodle with a pleasant and smooth tasting soup base. The charshu was thinly sliced and ticks all the boxes.

Their Gyoza Ramen came with steamed gyozas. They were quite nice but the pan fried ones were far superior - fortunately we had also ordered a side of those. The dipping sauce was a perfect balance of salty and sour, which lots of places don't get right in their gyoza sauce.
