    A TAKE AWAY is the same as TAKE OUT MEAL - it is food that is ordered from a restaurant or over the phone and eaten off the premises.

    Regarding RIGHT THROUGH, could you give a little more context please?
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    Would that be some fish and chips, perhaps?

    "fish and chips" - yes! Or perhaps a take-away pizza.

    Right Through means from beginning to the very end. I don't know of a meaning to do with take away food.

    It might "go right through you".
