Monty Python's first Curry
Monthy Python's Flying Circus was formed in this restaurant
Location: 98 Fleet Road, Hampstead, NW3 2QX
Description: And so it was back in mid-1969 that John Cleese called a comedy meeting of minds at this very Indian restaurant - the 'Light of Kashmir Tandoori'.
This was the first meeting that saw all the Pythons - Cleese, Chapman, Idle, Palin, Gilliam, Jones - get together, formulate the plan, and set the comic juices flowing.
In fact this could be the spot where 'Monthy Python's Flying Circus' was born.
And as it was in spitting distance of John Cleese's nearby Basil Street flat...the big man had a short walk home.
One to go and find and pay Python homage to then!
