Summary

“A gem for North African food”, “off the beaten track” in deepest Shepherd’s Bush, this is a “lovely family-run restaurant with super, authentic Tunisian and Moroccan food by night” and “greasy-spoon fare by day”. “The hosts epitomise hospitality” and have “maintained high standards for over 25 years”. It’s “good value, too”, with “the bonus of being able to BYO” (although they are now licensed).

Summary

“Thoughtful, charming service” and “hearty, uncomplicated dishes” (“delicious tagines and other Tunisian/Moroccan specialities” like brik à l’oeuf) mean the folk of ‘Askew Village’ are lucky to have this sweet café, which “has maintained excellent quality for over 25 years”, and where “the BYO policy (£3 corkage) leads to a very modest bill” (although it is also licensed). By day, it’s a British greasy spoon.

Owner's description



Abdel and Frances are the husband/wife team who have been running the award-winning Adams Café since 1989 (the year their son, Adam, was born – hence the name of their restaurant).


Having met in Paris and spent several years in France and Tunisia, they saw a gap in the London restaurant scene for North African cuisine. Adams Café which magically transforms from an English-style breakfast café by day to an atmospheric Mediterranean restaurant by night has become a local institution. Their Mega Breakfasts as well as their hearty couscous dishes, aromatic tajines and giant flame-grill prawns are legendary.


‘Fantastic value for money’ combined with healthy, home-cooked dishes bursting with flavour and relaxed, friendly service from the owners are what you will find at Adams Café on Askew Road.

"Standard Moroccan food - highly authentic but not elevated above that. The couple who run it are lovely and friendly though."
