Dosa/South Indian - LA area

I am originally from New York and have lived in LA for 2 ½ years. When I first asked where I could find good Indian food, I was simply told "good luck, there isn't any!" --this by Indian friends and non-Indian friends alike! At first I thought it was a joke but after 2 ½ years, I still have not been able to find a delicious crispy, spicy dosa--my all time favorite food on the planet--and i've had no success at finding anything here in LA that is like what I get in Little India in Jersey City, New York, or Queens. I'm a chef, so naturally I thought fine--I'll just make my own, at home--which is another story in itself. While I love the variety in Indian cuisine itself, my personal favorite for whatever reason seems to be Southern Indian, namely dosa/idli.

I was told to check out Artesia, which I plan on doing today. I've noticed that some of the online recommendations are old and outdated by a few years, so I wanted to revive this conversation about Southern Indian food, and dosa in particular. Are there any good dosa places, and are they still good?
