Starfire is a fantastic spot to grab a variety of Thai food. The curries and pad Thai and everything on the back page if the menu are top notch. Big city pricing for much of the food, but the taste is top notch and ingredients had to travel a long way up there. Locals favorite and visitors alike, star fire... More

Never thought I would find great Thai food in a small town like Skagway. Service was ok. Food was great and serving sizes were good. Recommend eating here after sightseeing and shopping.

Very cute place, staff very friendly, nice located near by the cruise ships terminal. The food is excellente and even if sounds weird to have Thai food in Alaska is very worth it!

I wasn't in Skagway long but this seemed to be a good location. The place was very busy on a Sunday night and it seemed that as soon as a table had emptied, it would fill up again. Definitely a good thing for service, however, not so good when the clients aren't getting the proper attention. When I walked in,... More

When we walked up there was a large group of "asian" tourists leaving the restaurant so I viewed that as a recommendation. The food was good with very big portions. I had the... More

I had my sister with me and she has a seafood allergy so I always check to see if there is enough air flow and... More
