I found the inside of the Church St. location very clean, with a few tables to sit at. I didn't see any other customers as I walked in around lunchtime, although a couple people arrived after I got my food.
There's rice, lentils, and vegetables for side dishes. Chicken for now is the only meat option. Tofu and paneer are the vegetarian choices. The one item that caught my eye: take the above items and customize your own burrito. Yeah, I said burrito. Never saw Indian food all wrapped up like that before.

A man there tried to sell me on a mango lassi, but I passed on the offer this time. I've had the drink before at other Indian places; it's very good stuff.
The Khana plate ($6.99) is their version of a make-your-own Indian plate. I may also have to try some samosas. They are $3 and $4, but at least they are larger than what I'm used to seeing. Heck, they even have a business lunch option that serves five people. I wonder how big it is, because I'm always curious as to how many adults (with average appetites) that I can eat as much as. Two people? Three? Five? Who knows.
I thought it was an OK first experience at Happy Curry Foods. The food didn't wow me, but it was good and certainly has potential in my eyes to be better. Extremely nice people. I hope to return. 6.5/10
