German sausages a speciality, as the name suggests. The food is good, the chips are great and all done with efficient and cheerful service. It's a great place for a quick bite to eat, warming and good portions.

Spotted this whilst walking through to a meeting, stopped and has a currywurst. It was delicious, and even better than the last one I had on a Berlin street corner. The.menu has a bit of variety with schnitzels. Only missing pork knuckle.

This is a no frills restaurant where you order like you would do in McDonalds. They give you a numbered flag in a bottle which you put on the table and then the food will come to you. But the food is fabulous. I had the se Uber Ding and it was the best thing on the menu. Its a... More

Herman Ze German is quite unique. It´s a little bit of "Germany" in London where you get excellent sausages (although I am quite sure ost Germans would not put Sauerkraut ON the wurst). The staff is friendly, the prices are reasonable and the quality of the wurst is excellent (MADE in Germany). Thumbs up.

Really very much enjoy Herman Ze German. The sausages are fantastic quality. I really like how they do their chips. It's very cheap and very delicious! You really can't go wrong with this. My favourite thing on the menu is the curry wurst.

the sausage is always good regardless of which you have. one of my party had a veggie and said it was good. I recommend the chip, i think they are air fired and are very good!

Made my first visit recently - and can't wait to go again! Had the bockwurst and cheesy pommes. Both were delicious! Busy little shop - may get a bit cramped during peak times whilst waiting for your order. Would highly recommend.

Became oddly addicted to curry wurst whilst in Frankfurt but seldom find them elsewhere. Wandered past this place on way to station and let out an embarrassingly loud yelp of delight to find curry wurst. If you've not had it before, it's chopped sausage in a lovely spicy sauce, somewhere between curry sauce and ketchup. It's simple tasty food. Staff... More
