Harden's survey result
“Greasy spoon by day, North African bistro by night” – this “so friendly” Shepherd’s Bush institution run by Anglo-Tunisian couple Frances and Abdel Boukraa has been “treasured by locals for 25 years”. “The grills (fish, lamb, chicken) are the high points, all delicious!”, but “don’t miss the home-made pickles and harissa – they’re highly addictive”. They are licensed these days, but you can still BYO (wines only, £6 corkage).
“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).
“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.
“Tagines to die for in very generous portions” are the surprise in store at this Shepherd’s Bush caff when it “turns into a North African restaurant by night”. “It’s the most friendly, hospitable, inexpensive place”.
Adams Café Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Standard Moroccan food - highly authentic but not elevated above that. The couple who run it are lovely and friendly though."
"Like a family meal without the shouting. Good North African food served with warmth and a smile. Askew Road veteran is the perfect local venue."
