Hole-in-the-wall Indian closest to Santa Monica?

Bombay Cafe is the bomb! Not exactly a hole in the wall but it is casual. Love the Lamb Frankies and naan.

D'Cache (recent) ?

I had my company dinner at D'Cache last night.The food was very solid if not remarkable, but the place was big fun. Lively, vibrant with flamenco. It also was a unique space, a old converted spanish style - house with lots of nooks and crannies.

The have a wood burning oven that turns out pizettes ( thin flatbread ) and they do a good job with meats South American style.
