Description: Run by Abdel and Frances Boukraa ��� he hailing from Djerba, Tunisia, she English born and bred ��� Adam���s Caf�� is a thriving family affair which has grown over the years to become one of Shepherds Bush���s most popular restaurants. A caf�� by day and a restaurant serving North African cuisine by night, Adam���s Caf�� is a bustling local hub, informal and authentic, decorated in mosaics and cheerful colours. It may serve the biggest and best breakfast on Askew Road but this is no greasy spoon. Visit in the evening and find yourself greeted by the spice infused aromas of Tunisia and Morocco. The menu consists simply of couscous dishes alongside grills and tagines, each based precisely on Abdel���s experience of home cooking. You really won���t find a more authentic taste of North Africa in the capital.

This was my first experience of Adams Cafe but will definitely return. It is situated on a fairly unassuming (but safe) road on the borders of Chiswick and Shepherd's Bush, with one or two pubs nearby if you fancy a pre-dinner drink. It's quite small so booking at potentially busy periods is probably worthwhile. There's are upstairs and downstairs sections;... More

The food was excellent, certainly as good good as anything we have eaten in Morocco, and the service was of the same high standard. It may be a cafe in the daytime, but in the evening it was warm and intimate. We really enjoyed the evening and we will be back soon.

A friendly welcome coupled with good food and great value awaits you at Adams Cafe, the perfect local restaurant that you wish was local to you. Anyone looking for an unpretentious night out who appreciates the benefits of being able to drink their BYO whilst eating authentic Moroccan/Tunisian fare, will love it here. We will definitely return - it's worth... More

I can't imagine why I haven't been here before. Warm welcome, authentic food, that goes beyond just cous-cous and tagines. Delicious fresh fish and grilled meat - and merguez - so hard to find in England. Excellent value too. If you know and like Tunisian/Moroccan food, you'll love this place.

I choose this restuarant based on Tripadvisor recommendations. Based on our experience, I thought perspective would be needed. The night was fun, but not due to the food, location, ambience. Wine list is limited (our bottle below average), food was average to ok (expected more); ambience lacking for an evening for 2. Would be perfect for a large group meal... More

I went with four other family members for dinner, and we all had a great meal in excellent friendly surroundings. Great friendly welcome, and some serious North African food. We know Tunisia. Morocco and Algeria pretty well, and I would say we ate better in Askew Road than you do in many more expensive restaurants out there. Wine is not... More

My sister took me here for a meal because she had a flat nearby. My sister has now moved out of London, but I've found a new reason to visit Askew road - this restaurant is stunning. The menu is mostly set price, you choose 1, 2 or 3 courses. The cuisine is Tunisian with Moroccan influences (think tagines, couscous,... More

My partner took me here for my birthday dinner and I was extremely impressed. They served the best garlic Calamari I have ever tasted! The service was fantastic and was a very quaint place - a perfect place for a romantic dinner or a catch up with friends. Plus it's BYO, which aren't very common around this area. Great job... More

I went with some friends who go there a lot. The owners are extremely welcoming and polite, they made us feel at home instantly. The food is substantial, tasty, homy and filling without being too heavy. Their BYO policy is very convenient, as there is a great off licence nearly opposite. This restaurant is also reasonably priced. A good evening... More

Owned by a very charming Tunisian/English couple who have worked hard to put their son through law school (the restaurant bears his name) and can be proud of their efforts. A lovely restaurant on Askew Road which is slowly becoming a foodie destination for folks who live in Chiswick, Hammersmith and East Acton. The menu is north African / middle... More
