Surprisingly good Thai for a tiny village

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... read more

My review in 2011 was that Starfire was great, but we went back this last September after having been away for a year and found that in comparison, the prices seemed about 20% higher and the food was not as great as I had remembered. The pad thai did not have fresh veggies, the entire thing resembled a big glop... 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!

First time here we were pressed for time and just had a pad thai to go. This time, we were able to sit down for a full meal The place was hopping when we arrived but we waited to get a table as we'd heard so many good things about the food. We were not disappointed in the slightest. Once... More

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

Coming off a cruise ship doesn't mean you don't try local restaurants. Most of the restaurants we passed seem to cater to tourists, but Starfire looked real. 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
