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.

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

I went to Adams Cafe recently for dinner with a group of friends. The servicea nd ambiance were amazing, more importantly the food was just incredible! 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.

We were really happy with the service, value and quality of food at Adams Cafe. Knocked back a lovely bottle of Moroccan red, starter and main for £15 deal, fish was particularly good (choose the sea bass...). Great atmosphere; will come back!

there are very few Tunisian restaurants in London and I have tried them all with my Tunisian husband, we was very happy when we discovered Adams cafe at the bottom of our road. It is by far the best in London the brike was very yummy and the slow cooked lamb was delicious.
