We live in Whitehorse and always try to stop at the Starfire every time we're in Skagway! Love the curries, Pad Thai & fried rice although the the lunch size Pad Thai is not a very big portion. They've got a good selection of beers but the wine by the glass is expensive. The appetizers are quite average except the... More

I enjoyed my lunch here and found the food very good, not too spicy. I had the Pad Thai, and it lived up to expectations.

We live in Whitehorse and eat here a couple times a year The pad thai is usually excellent. We had takeout recently and ordered pad thai and curry chicken with pineapple When I served up the curry I asked my husband if he got any chicken, and he did not. I dug through the container and found a small piece... More

Just a block off one of the main downtown streets in Skagway AK but the Thai food was great. A great variety of selections on the menu so that anyone could easily find something to try if they were not Thai food people. Very friendly service person and overall a nice dining experience for us.

This Thai restaurant is just far enough off the main thoroughfare in Skagway to avoid the worst of the lunch crowds. We were able to be seated with no wait, even as the rest of the town was mobbed with cruise tourists. The food was very good: well-prepared and flavorful. However, at least for my dish, their definition of "hot"... More

We went rafting and the guides and locals told us what great Thai food they had. No joke, Skagway has great Thai food. We ate there twice!!! You can even see the chef picking fresh herbs from the garden for your meal. It was really good and worth the trip.

We were on our way to the Atlin Music Festival and asked a local for the best restaurant in town. He didn't hesitate so we gave Starfire a try. Everything was top notch from the service, friendliness of staff, and the delightful menu. One caveat -- food is hot so let them know if you'd like it toned down a... More

We were pleasantly surprised to find such high-quality Thai food in small town Alaska. They have an extensive menu and a helpful staff. Their Tom Ka coconut soup was the best we have ever eaten. We liked it so much we came back twice during our stay. You may want to call for reservations in the evenings.

My family (a group of 16) went to Starfire while we were in port from a cruise. We were hungry after our excursions and saw this restaurant. They sat us right away and got all of our orders. No problems with any of our food - everything came out fast and correct. The service was great and everyone was very... More

We took our daughter and her husband there for her birthday (they live in Skagway, and this is one of their favorite places). I had one of the specials Chu Chi; it was amazing, as the waiter had advised. Unexpected, yes. But check it out if you like Thai.
