Indian market/food near LAX

Hi all,

I know of a few Indian markets with food counters in Torrance, but does anyone know of one near the LAX/El Segundo area? Especially interested in finding a market/food counter that sells good samosas, but also like to hear about generally good Indian food places.

  1. Not exactly samosa country, but the butcher shop next to Al Watan in Hawthorne has some Muslim Indian groceries.

    1. There's Samosa house and Indian Spices in Culver City, if that's not too far up Sepulveda for you.

      1. I have actually had some great samosas at the Whole Foods market in torrance. Maybe the new one in El Segundo has the same.

        1. South Asian markets near LAX:
          Just south of Al Watan Market there is yet another Indian grocery (Rocky Mini Mart?)
          Fiji Indian Market is at 12921 Hawthorne Blvd, Hawthorne (IIRC frozen samosas)
          There is a Sri Lankan market at 12301 Hawthorne Blvd, Hawthorne

          The best bets for samosas close to LAX would be:
          India Grill, 11918 Aviation Bl (between Imperial and El Segundo)
          Taj Mohal (?), 10011 Hawthorne Blvd, Inglewood (just south of Century)
          Bilal, 1117 W Manchester Blvd # G, Inglewood (just east of Aviation)
          Indian Summer, 219 Main St, El Segundo
