Good ethnic restaurants in S.M./W. L.A. area?

I’m in charge of putting together weekly dinners for a group of college student…There’s usually around 8 of us (give or take a couple), with most coming from the Santa Monica/West L.A. area. We like to try different ethnic foods, but any place good that can accommodate a group on a budget ($20/person or less) would be great. Of the restaurants we’ve been to so far, Guelaguetza, Café Brasil, Versailles, Shamshiri, Nyala, and Bossa Nova Café are our favorites (the last two a little far for some, but worth the drive)… Thanks!
