This small spot specializes in serving just the popular Thai dish “khao mun gai” (chicken over rice) but does offer it in four versions.  The Original consists of both breast and thigh meat with skin (the poached chicken is fresh and succulent) and jasmine white rice ($11.95); The Marina is all skinless breast meat with organic brown rice ($12.95); The Vegetarian features organic tofu, brown rice, and seasonal veggies ($9.95); and The Paleo is a choice of breast or thigh meat and seasonal veggies ($12.95).  Each meal comes with a cup of chicken broth and a container of delicious chili-ginger-garlic-soybean sauce.  Containers of hot sauce await at the self-serve counter.  I just sampled the Original at home.  I timed my stop here to pick up a meal to go.  They packed it up securely for BART, and all was well with it when I got home.  I found the portion to be very generous, and turned my meal into two.  Sometimes the line is long, but it moves fast and gives you time to reflect on which version you will select.  Bowls and utensils are compostable.  Ten tables are available on site, but most people seem to take out.
