Amazing Home Cooked Thai Food

Great food, great ambiance, great hosts! A refreshing change from the fish-and-chips and other hamburger type stuff you get at Talkeetna. The old-man isnt that old and is great company! (hope he recognizes me from the review!)

We stayed here because there was no vacancy in the cabins downtown. We had a car so we didn't mind being 10 miles from town. We ended up paying half the price we would have downtown. The easy access to great Thai food is a bonus. We would stay again if we run out of downtown options.

Despite being a little roadside trailer, they do an awesome job with their fried rice, and the spring rolls are awesome (they never make it home)! It's definitely one of my go to places in Talkeetna for tasty takeout. They also have a few tables on site!

The entire restaurant is actually a small trailer. lots of mosquitos but food is above average. No restroom but they provide an outhouse. service is very good and fast. went back second day but they decide to close at 8 pm because they have friends visiting them from out of town. We drove quite a distance and that is why... More

Payo's is another excellent place to eat in Talkeetna. The food is delicious. Portions are very generous & at a reasonable price. Payo will also customize how spicy you want your meal!! My favorite is the Spicy Chicken & Basil!!

They have moved out of the downtown area of Talkeetna to about mile 1 on the spur road, where they were located before downtown. But the best part is they still have great food, even if it looks like a trailer, because it is, doesn't change the fact that they have some of the best food around.

Very authentic Thai food. Felt as if eating on Bangkok streets. Went crazy over soups. It was such a treat in that wilderness that it added value to out stay in Talkeetna.

If you want to escape the Main Street madness in Talkeetna, go one block north to Payo's! This food truck-esq set up may not look like much, but the food speaks volumes! I've had the chance to dine here a few times for lunch and the portions are generous and the prices fair. They make everything to order and as... More

Our family had a very flavourful vegetarian meal at Payo Thai Kitchen on July 10, 2014. The lady who took our order really understood that vegetarian food meant no chicken broth and no oyster sauce which is often overlooked by most restaurants who claim to be vegetarian-friendly. The service was fast and friendly. While the area was small and off... More
