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.

I heard about this lovely family run restaurant from a friend. And I'm so glad I did. I went with my partner and cannot praise it enough. Firstly the atmosphere. Cosy and warm with a tasteful decor and feel of North Africa. You have a choice of menu based on whether you want one two or three courses. We ordered... More

Three of us went for dinner and had a really lovely time. The food was so fresh and tasty. You're also able to take your own wine for a small charge. I will be going back soon. The owners were there and made us feel very welcome.

Love Adams! Authentic Tunisian/Moroccan food at very reasonable prices. Unpretentious décor, friendly staff/owners and mouth-watering dishes. The tagines are delicious! Super nibbles put you in the mood whilst you await your starters. I have never been disappointed by any meal here. Always a delight.

Visited as it was listed as a surprising member of the top most romantic places to eat in London by Time Out, and weren't disappointed! We've been back again since, each time the service is lovely, the food unpretentious, and overall great value.

Went to Adams Cafe based on TA reviews for Moroccan food. The service was good, but food was pretty average in terms of flavour and portion size. Not sure I would go back for the food, but the atmosphere was nice.

Small family restaurant. Clean and friendly owners. Food wasn't too bad either. Nice place for dinner if you don't really want to splash on a meal

This is very nice restaurant serving Moroccan and middle eastern food. It is reasonably priced and you can take a bottle of wine for a small corkage charge. Definitely visit again. We have eaten there a few times.

I've loved dining in Adams Cafe every time I've been and was thrilled to discover that using Deliveroo the wonderful food can be delivered in the local area! So last night we placed our first order and our words were to the effect of 'we're never ordering from anywhere else'. The meal arrived as wonderful as it when dining in,... More
