The bill was about $30, or $10/person, plus tip.

Latest Curry in the Box news and reviews
So, Curry n' Hurry moved out of University Square and sold their recipes to Curry in the Box, Fitchburg.
Thank goodness the peacock moved with them! It's about the only character in the pleasant, but (in)distinctly Fitchburger atmosphere. Comparisons to Noodles and Cranberry Creek are not without merit.
Nichole's murg saagwala, or chicken & spinach curry, was creamy and delish. Curry in the Box has spruced up the presentation a bit over Curry n' Hurry's styrofoam plates. (That must be where the $2 increase goes.)
They still serve their entrees with the same spicy papad bread and deceptively cooling/fiery raita cucumber yogurt on the side.
John wrote of his chicken dish that sweet and spicy made a wonderfully tasty combination. It set a benchmark for his future curry meals (of which this was the first). In sum, "Nummy nummy!"
The chicken tikka masala JM ordered was better than Curry 'n' Hurry's. He said he enjoyed it, but he's not the world's biggest curry fan. The portions here were a little large, and to him curry (esp. this kind for some reason) tends to be a bit of a one-note flavor. Enjoyable but better as a flavor in a side dish, hethinks.
It's hard not to compare Curry in a Box to its predecessor, but we think it stands tall on its own.
