Very good and you can order it as hot as you can handle on a scale of 1-5! Yummy food and the owners are very nice. Hours vary depending on season and day but if its open you should stop.

Flavoursome and affordable asian alternative to the usual steak, chips and pizza in Talkeetna's main street. Payo’s Thai is fantastic - not only for the food, but the owners.

The owners are very friendly and hospitable, these cabins are outside of the busy downtown Talkeetna so you can enjoy the sound of the wilderness. The bed is really comfortable, and the cabin has all of the modern convience you could hope for. I would defiantly stay here again!!

It's about 12 miles out of the town center but well worth tracking back for, with some of the best home style Thai cooking anywhere. The aromas as you wait for your fresh cooked meal will drive you... More

I came here while traveling. Having Yelped this place after arriving with an empty stomach at the Denali Brewing Company a few minutes away and finding out that they did not serve food. Coming from a big city with many Thai options, this place was pretty good. Especially in a rural area (by my standards) like this part of Talkeena.... More

Great food, great folks, fast service, check it out no other Thai food for 60 miles south or 250 miles north! My favorite is the Pad thai, and they will cater to your vegetarian needs
