Great Thai Food!

I've been a seasonal worker in Skagway Alaska for a few years now and I've always come to starfire at least once a week, I love all the staff, they are always very pleasant and friendly and the chefs do an amazing job. I definitely recommend this restaurant! ♡♡♡

If you eat anywhere in Skagway make sure it’s the STARFIRE, a huge local favorite. Locals from neighboring towns never miss a chance to eat here. The food and staff are outstanding. I can’t say enough good things about it. The menu has a great variety of dishes that can cater to anyone’s taste and palette, and the portions are... More

This place is a block off the main drag, pretty much by itself. Look for all the Canadian license plates parked out front. Probably the best testament to their food is the number of Whitehorse residents willing to drive two hours to eat here! Thai is not my thing - I don't do spicy - but I do go back... More

Thanks for the taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor! I appreciate that you mentioned that spicy is not your thing and that there are many other options on the menu. We pride ourselves on our big portions and commitment to lots of fresh vegetables. Hope to see you again soon! More

Hard to believe but true, this is authentic Thai food made with fresh ingredients, amazing spices and large portions. I'm a Skagway local who just returned from 3 months in Southeast Asia and when I need a fix, I'll definitely be heading to Starfire. I'd recommend the Chu Chi and the Thom Kha Soup!

Thanks for the friendly review! We get most of our spices and ingredients directly from Thailand to be as authentic as possible. Many say we serve the best food they've had since their last visit to Thailand! Chok Di! 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

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!
