Always Top Notch

Starfire is the best! I used to live in Thailand, and I'm picky about my Thai food! Jeffrey and crew are great, and there are some regional dishes that can be hard to find in Bangkok, like Khao Soi, my favorite, usually only found in Chiang Mai! You can't go wrong with Starfire!

They claim to be the #1 thai restaurant in Skagway, but they're the only ones. Either way, it's definitely the best in town if you have a craving. Small and cozy with a friendly staff. The menu has the standard thai fare, with a few special dishes including purple curry! The prices are also reasonable and there are special wine... More

I thought it was good food but I like my Thai food really spicy and it was mild. I find this to be true of Thai food in the USA. The staff was really friendly.

Peanut Sauce! There. I said it. Starfire has the best peanut sauce we've ever tasted! We take an Alaska cruise every year or two. Obviously, cruises are an "all you can eat" scenario, but we always plan on making time for Starfire! Don't be put off by the three middle-aged Caucasian males doing all the cooking. Relax, the head chef... More

I've never acquired a taste for Thai food, but my wife loves it. During the years we lived in Skagway the Starfire was a place we would use for special occasions. She would get the food she loves, good ingredients prepared well, and there was plenty of other menu choices to keep me happy. When we moved out of Skagway... More

I am sorry to hear that you are upset, but I think I can explain. When a credit or debit card is authorized, (meaning swiped by the server) the bank immediately puts a hold on the amount of the charge PLUS roughly 50%. This is their way of ensuring that there is also enough funds to cover the tip. That... More

Great place to eat! The dinner menu is much larger than the lunch. The red curry is my favorite. The service is pretty good...when slower it can be iffy...just depends on who's there.

My wife and I stopped at Starfire for dinner after a day of hiking trails around Skagway and were very happy with the choice. The restaurant is fairly small but has good atmosphere. We split an order of Pad Ginger ($18.00) and an order of egg rolls ($8.50) and thought that both selections were well prepared and delicious. The portions... More

My husband and I ate lunch here on a Wednesday, when the special was brown curry. That really was massaman, and I chose chicken. My husband had the pad thai with tofu and although both were delicious, we preferred the brown curry. It was served with white rice. I would have preferred brown rice, but was not asked , so...
