Best Local style Korean food since the 70s I have eaten there several times a year for decades . Holidays and weekends can get very crowded .

I was so excited about this visit to the Dong Yang Inn in Wahiawa town because the photos taken of their food looked great! I've been slowly introduced to a number of Korean dishes and was really excited about trying their spicy beef soup (yookaejang). Watching everyone else being served their platters of Meat Chun or BBQ Meat made me... More

The Bi Bing Bap is so good...sesame oil dripped into the bottom of the bowl, topped w/hot rice, filled with assorted veggies, and teri-beaf, and a cooked egg on top, with go ge gung (hot sauce) at the side of the dish, or not. This will replace your ordering just "tourist" Korean foods....I also order gim, (nori braised over a... More

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
