Is there any GOOD Indian food in Venice, SM, Marina area?

Help Chowhounds, help! We just ate the yuckiest most dissapointing "Indian" meal we've ever had. The local food court beats it, I swear. It was at Dhamba on Main Street and Bicknell in Santa Monica.

I'll sum up in a nutchell because it's not worth the time even to write: tiny lhassis served in tiny 8oz glasses, stale, store-bought naan, papadum cooked hours ago, uninspired mint chutney, inauthentic saag paneer (tasted kinda Mexican, which is great when you go out for Mexican food...) and another sweet-potato and eggplant-ish dish that did not beg remembering. All tiny portions for an overpriced $34. Steer clear.

So where do we go for good Indian? We don't particularly care about ambiance, in fact, take-out is more than fine with us, as long as it's GOOD and INDIAN and not way overpriced.

Thanks in advance!
