Indian Restaurants - Vancouver - Recommendations?

Where are the notable places for Indian food in Vancouver?

I have been to Maurya and didn't like it at all. The flavours seemed dumbed down for the non-Indian palate, and when I asked for HOT, they gave me something that barely registered on the heat scale.

I have also been to (unless noted, all were very average):

Jolly's Bistro
Swagat (sp?) on Davie
Ashiana on Kingsway - enjoyed it immensely
All Indian Sweets on Main
Bombay Bhel - way way far, but I enjoyed the food
Rubina's stall @ GI
Indian @ the Tinseltown food court (name escapes me) - awful, watered down curries

Also, every time I pass through gastown, there is a cluster of Indian restos there.. but I've no idea which ones are decent.

Has anyone been to any of these, and how was your experience?

--India Bistro
--Samosa Garden
--Chutney Villa
--House of Dosas
--Tandoori King (on Main?)
--Jewel of India

Is it true that the best Indian food can only be had at a family gathering at home, and not at a restaurant here? :(
