Worth every penny

The food here is insanely good and affordable. I paid $18 for a plate of fried rice and there's enough food there to last me 3 meals. I like to go here when I'm low on funds and need to stretch my dollar. I suggest the pineapple fried rice with chicken.

Found this in our guidebook and were so glad! It's a bit off the beaten path, which was nice for a quiet lunch. The service was quick and friendly, and the food was delicious! Just what we needed after a week of bland cruise food. It seemed to be a popular place for locals, too, which is always a good... More

Starfire is a little off the beaten path in Skagway so it can easily be missed. You'll be sad if you don't eat here though! I am a vegetarian and they make it super easy to get anything how I want it. I'm a die hard fan of their tom kha soup with tofu - they put pieces of fresh... More

This place came well recommended by friends in Skagway and I dived in straight for lunch with a friend. Could not have made a better decision! Loved the food, the ambiance, the service and the hospitality. We ordered their tom yum and tom kha soups with chicken for starters which comes with a bowl of rice and for our mains... More

Starfire is off Broadway, the Main Street in town, but easily found. Much of the food in Skagway consists of very fresh Halibut fried for fish and chips. This is a full menu Thai restaurant that offers a break from standard Alaskan or ship fare. Very clean with excellent selection and service

Thanks for the review! We love that you appreciate our alternative cuisine for Southeast Alaska (-- I mean, we love them, but one can only eat so many fish and chips!) More

We ate here last year and think they are even better than they were... The fare is mostly Thai and it does not disappoint. the Pad Ginger was really good and the Purple Curry will curl your toes if you get the 4 star version. All seem fresh and plentiful and reasonable compared to many of the other options in... More

That a thai restaurant like this exists in Skagway is remarkable. As well done as any restaurant I eaten at outside of Thailand. The chef's training in Thailand and ability to find fresh ingredients in this remote location draws the cruise ship staff and foodies from Juneau and Whitehorse , Yukon. The service is family friendly and justly proud of... More
