Who knew there would be such great Thai food in Skagway. It's not the best every, but for up there I was pleasantly surprised! After the cruise crowds left we got the "local treatment" with all the workers there for the season the atmosphere turned quite fun and friendly. Just a really pleasant experience all around!

My wife and I chose to eat here rather than getting back on the cruise ship for the regular bulk food. We're glad we did. It was Friday fish night with fresh salmon! We included this as part of some items on the menu (mostly Thai). The waitress was fantastic and super accommodating. This place was the highlight of our... More

Popped in here for early dinner today and we were both happy with our choices: brown chicken curry and yellow tofu curry. Generous portions, tasty food and very pleasant staff. They also do take out if you can’t finish your meal. Special “quick” lunches (food that doesn’t take very long to cook) are available if you’re on tight schedule. More... More

You will not be disappointed in this restaurant if you enjoy good service and great Thai food. The portions were generous and the food was freshly prepared. It is a locals favorite!

Food was great -- one member of our group was concerned about spicy food -- not a problem. There is something on the menu for everyone.

Good Food, Good Service, Good Variety. Helpful staff if you have companions that are not familiar with Thai food or afraid of the heat.

First I don't really pay attention to the place. Just a usual diner place. My friend and I order Fried rice each. It came big portion and amazingly delicious. The spices and rice are tasty. If you you stranded in this Nice small town, find this place...get their tom yam soup and fried rice

As we were in Skagway for several nights, wanted something different and chose Starfire. Thai food was excellent, especially enjoyed on the back patio.

The Starfire restaurant has been delighting locals and the hundreds of thousands cruise ship passengers and crew that pass through Skagway, Alaska each and every summer. We pride ourselves in serving fresh, authentic food at reasonable prices (and let's face it this is Alaska so reasonable is relative!) Our recipes come from many sources including our Chef Judd's years spent living and traveling in Thailand, unique fresh salmon preparation, as well as big fat burritos recipe from Jeffrey's mother! We are passionate about what we do and are always striving to better serve our old friends as well as our new ones. Thank you all for making our dream of owning a healthy, sustainable, locally owned business amidst the beauty and wonder of Southeast, Alaska a reality! Jeffrey Hitt and Judd Davis Owner/operators
