All I can say is to get the meat jun. It is one of the best I've ever tried. The place is not the cleanest so if you don't have the stomach for it, order take out. Food is very reasonably priced and surprisingly the staff are pretty pleasant. Definitely have to try this place out!

What most people go to Dong Yan Inn for is their meat chun. If you don't know what that is, it's thin slices of meat that's in an egg batter then fried. I've tried meat chun at many other places, but no where can you find a better meat chun than at Dong Yang. What makes theirs better is that... More

I had heard good things about them, and we weren't disappointed! It has a hometown atmosphere... a lot of local customers. It seemed like they all knew someone from each bunch of customers. We did a take out order... was serviced by someone who could've been your auntie. Service was fast and friendly. The serving portions were large - one... More

Not sure what the big deal is since this is just another local Hawaii Korean BBQ place. Most Korean BBQ places are fairly good and this is no exception. Dirty place with good tasting food. The meat chun is tasty and plentiful. The kalbi was tender but there were only two slices. Only complaint is the Kim Chee was a... More

"Fine Korean Food" is what they on their menu, "Since,1975". Take their word for this. The meals we four had were delicious - and the chicken broth soup is offered as a light and lovely first course, after the kim chi, naturally. The atmosphere...none, unless you remember Wahiawa in the 70's. Kali was delicious. So instead of walking into McDonalds,... More

Liked by everyone in the family. Yes, greasy, but yummy! Think calling in your order and picking up is better than dining in. Meat chun is the best here.

This was the place that taught me I didn't have to keep getting fast food to save money. The line was so long at McD's (right across the street, Don Yang is behind McDonald's) so I thought, "What the heck." It became my favorite restaurant for the two years I lived on Oahu. Portions are amazing (big enough for two... More

This place has been a go-to for our family for many years. The meat jun is probably the best you'll get anywhere in Hawaii. If you eat inside, you also get this awesome soup with egg strips inside. I eat in often, just for the soup. The portions are humongous, but I still don't share. :). I actually wooed my... More
