Thai Food at its best

Small tourist town but a bigggg Thai food place to be. A very good variety of Thai food that will tickle your taste buds. My husband loves the shrimp Pad Ti and like like just about anything else on the menu-med heat. The sauces are excellent, veggies fresh and crisp and the staff great. Oh yes... read more

We had the order of egg rolls and thoroughly enjoyed them. Great flavor, texture and crispy crust. Always a good sign that the food will be good. My husbands chicken Pad Thai was excellent with a unique flavor he found satisfying. I had the chicken green curry and it arrived in a huge soup bowl! I devoured half of it... More

Starfire is my favourite dinner spot in Skagway. Incredible Thai food and very friendly service. We always come back because it is so delicious!

What can I say, order the Big Fat Burrito! Yeah sure it has a lot of rice, but it also has a ton of Beef. One burrito serves two easily, unless you are a monster. Great location, patio on sunny days is the place to be. Its just steps front he main drag, but quiet and perfect. My only complaint,... More

Before we get to the food, a note about the ambiance. The inside rooms are brightly painted and adorned with beautiful, local artwork. This is the first welcome change from the heavy darkness that seems to be the norm in a number of other Skagway restaurants. Second, there is an outdoor seating -- which is where we enjoyed Chicken Adobo... More

I have been living in Skaway for 2 summers and Starfire is unquestionably my favorite restaurant in town. Tom kha soup, fried rice, curry, and drunken noodles are all phenomenal. My only gripe is with the egg rolls. They are slightly larger than a tube of chapstick and so they are almost all breading. Please, Starfire, make these bigger so... More

Delicious food that never seems to get boring! They have an amazing selection of currys that never seem to get old! Each one is a unique and delicious meal! They also use exotic spices such as bay leaves, whole anise, cloves, lemongrass, etc. Very good food!

Decided on the Starfire late-ish on a Saturday evening, after a long day, on the basis that it was still open, and that it had a good rep amongst friends. It's a little restaurant half a block off Skagway's main street; it has a homey 'neighborhood restaurant' feel to it. Our group of four selected four different dishes, and all... More
