What defines the quintessential British takeaway curry, and what's the closest I can come in San Francisco?

When I watch BBC shows or read books set in the UK, I keep coming across people getting takeaway curries. They look delicious on TV.
I imagine (perhaps incorrectly) that there are differences between British takeaway and getting Indian food to go at your average San Francisco Indian restaurant.
What's a typical takeaway curry like? In particular, is it packaged as curry-over-rice (in one container) or is rice separate?
Can I get a reasonable approximation in San Francisco? I saw recommendations for Brit-like curry and chips at The Chieftains, The Irish Bank, and Kennedy's in this previous curry and chips
thread, but the takeaways I see on TV don't come with chips; they're curry in a rectangular aluminum container.
