We had one of the best Asian meals in Fairbanks at the Seoul Gate and Seoul Sushi Restaurant. We ate on the Sushi side of the restaurant, but my husband ordered from the Seoul Gate menu. I had a bulgogi dinner box with beef bulgogi, rice, salad, California rolls, and wonderful tempura. My husband had pork bulgogi which came with... More

Who would think you could get tasty Korean food in Fairbanks…underneath a bowling alley? It's a strange location but the food is great. The service is decent and the decorations are…interesting. They bring out 8 little plates of different types of food while you wait on your order. The type of food changes every day and it's all pretty tasty.... More

A business associate brought me here to eat. I was at first very skeptical because this restaurant is under a bowling alley. To my great surprise I realized this place is a hidden gem in Fairbanks. The food was fresh and delicious. If you leave her hungry it's your on fault. They start you with 8 appetizers. The menu is... More

We are on a two week driving tour of Alaska and wanted to find a reasonably priced restaurant with food that was tasty but not rich with calorie laden sauces, butter, etc as we are already getting tired of eating out every night. While the dining room is nothing facy, we found it very clean. ALL the staff was more... More

Cool place under a bowling alley. If you like Korean I'm sure you'll be pleased. They serve it up and service is pretty good.

I love the food here. I pretty much get the same thing every time (Bimimbap?) and it's always fresh and delicious. It is in an older building and the restrooms are down the hall, but the food is well worth it. I can't wait to go back!

Went to Seoul Gate for the first time after having been to Korea. It tasted and felt very similar to the restaurants that we ate in in Seoul. The food is really good and comes really fast. It has become our go-to restaurant for a quick family meal that is way up the scale from fast food and chain family... More

Thought about not writing on this place and then thought I owe it to fellow travelers. The waitress couldn't look less enthusiastic if she tried. The poor fish in tiny glass aquariums couldn't look more mistreated, shame on you, seoul gate. Wish i had the power to make their lives better...maybe trip advice will help a little. The starter came... More

Under the bowling alley that's across from the park behind the library in Fairbanks, Alaska, is a Korean food treat! Beginning with a nice variety of banchan (small dishes of various appetizers), you will have a choice of a vast selection of tasty dishes. The location and the decor had me wondering during my first visit. Now that I've had... More
