Indian Restaurants in Artesia

I have been meaning for some time now to check out the selection of Indian restaurants in Artesia but don't know where to start. Does anyone have any suggestions of good places to eat? North and South cuisine are both fine. Vegetarian is a plus. Addresses are also appreciated! Thanks.
As it happens, I'm heading down to Pioneer Boulevard for some marvelous Indian food tonight. I can only attest to the quality of the food at Woodlands: very good.
Woodlands Indian Cuisine
11833 Artesia Blvd (& Pioneer), Artesia
But here are other places you could consider:
Little India Grill
18383 Pioneer Blvd, Artesia
(Praised by gf at http://www.chowhound.com/california/b...
Standard Sweets and Snacks
Bombay Sweets and Snacks
Surati Farsan Mart
Jay Bharat Restaurant
18701 Pioneer Blvd, Artesia
(Thi Nguyen and Jonathan Gold both like JB.)
18635 Pioneer Boulevard
And see the excellent L A Times article on which I've based this selection; I've linked it below.
i've enjoyed the luncheon buffet several times at 'ashoka the great' on pioneer. it's a good way to sample the fine curries and salads of southern cuisine. and, you are brought freshly heated flatbread (roti? i can't remember the name), which is excellent. also, there's high quality fresh fruit to cleanse and cool the palate afterward, so that's kind of nice. it's 6.95 per person, i believe, a bargain. or you can order on your own, off of their formidable menu.
the atmosphere is nice, a bit formal, with linens and fairly attentive staff, in keeping with their more profitable dinner crowd, but the lunchtime masses are a mixture of indians and locals, which i think is very good, and usually all are quite happy to be there. as was i.
and now, i must go eat.
If you're looking for very casual (paper and styrofoam plates), Ambala is very good. There is a chicken on the menu there that is cooked in yogurt and spices, which give it a green tinged skin, which is wonderful. There is also an Ambala sweets shop in the same strip mall.
