Great Indian Food in Los Angeles?

Indian is one of my favorite cuisines, but I must say that I have yet to find an Indian place in my beloved City of Angels that blows me away. I've been so disappointed that I haven't even tried to find Indian for years. Hopefully there has been some good ones that have since sprung up.
The one place I really liked was Lawrence of India in Mar Vista, on Inglewood Blvd., just south of Culver Blvd. It was a tiny slot of a place run by a family from India. The father cooked, the mother and teen daughter served. The mother and daughter were always bickering with each other, none of the plates matched, the decor was bizzare. But the food was excellent, the service very good, and you could bring your own bottle in without getting charged a corking fee. On top of it all, the prices were quite reasonable. Unfortunately, although popular, the family up and left and moved back to India years ago.
But I digress. What's the best Indian place in LA?
I like Addi's Tandoori (Redondo Beach). Also, the Akbar in Santa Monica has a few excellent items (CTM and Chilean Seabass). But I agree, good indian is hard to come by here.
