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.

Huzzah!

I have to add to the chorus of "Huzzah!"s for this place. The worst part of dining for two is that you often get a table in the middle of a whole row, no more than six inches from your neighbour. So I asked for table away from the door and with some privacy like I always do. Most places... read more

I've eaten in Moroccan restaurants in various countries, including Morocco, France and Belgium, but in all honesty Adams Cafe is the best I've been to. The food is always excellent: very tasty, never bland, yet never too heavy or salty. There is a good choice on the menu, not just the usual couscous and tajines (though these are certainly recommended),... More

ADAMS CAFE has become an institution, the very best sort. The charming couple, Frances and Abdel Boukraawho, who started this transport café by day and Moroccan / Tunisian candlelit restaurant by night, have been here 25 years and survived and prospered. He is Tunisian, she English and they have raised a lovely (bi-lingual) family here, all of whom seem to... More

Went for dinner when the menu consists of Tunisian and Moroccan dishes. My companion had a lamb tagine and I had a prawn dish. Both were good however the spicy mayonnaise with the prawns wasn't very spicy to my palate. Complimentary appetizers and mint tea were a bonus.

We've been coming to Adam's Café for years, both as a couple and with friends, and I can honestly say that the food has always reached a terrifically high standard and the service has always been professional and welcoming. It's a strange place - a regular café by day but by night transformed into a little bit of Tunisia -... More

Fresh flavours, great presentation and very, very tasty, with lots of choice for both vegetarians and meat eaters.

Went here for my friends birthday and I was so impressed with the high level of service and food! We had a set menu as there was a large group, but there were still plenty of options to choose from. I would order the monkfish tagine again as this was exquisite! We ordered more wine and this arrived within minutes.... More

Great find just off Hammersmith Broadway on Shepherd's Bush Road. Good food, freshly cooked, with friendly staff happy to have a chat. Lovely variety on the menu for either a tea and cake or a full blown roast. Excellent value too.
