I enjoyed my visit to Herman ze German. It was a nice concept. Serving Paulaner was a perfect compliment to enjoyable wurst selection. A little pricey, but I understand it has to be. Would probably stumble back, but only on a fast-food basis.

I took my mum for a nostalgic bratwurst and though she was sniffy at first she had to admit it was good. I was delighted that they had a veggie option and very good it was too. Service absolutely charming.

We ate at the Soho branch, ordering a Currywurst and a regular Bockwurst. The menu wasn’t the clearest especially when it came to figuring out which drinks were available. For somewhere that charges about £12 for a speciality sausage with fries and a pint, the food was just about average. The sausages were fine but nothing special, the crispy onion... More

We stopped off her after seeing the Commitments. Perfect for a late night snack. Very well done curry wurst. The bread is spot on. Next time we're in London, definitely coming by for a visit. German sausages and pretzels; perfect for a late night snack!

Ate here Saturday night before drinks in Soho, it's basically just fast food, it was OK, it was nice even but I just can't enthuse too much about sausage and chips with curry sauce either. If you just want something filling before a night out then head here just don't expect anything remotely fancy.

I lived in Germany for 4 years and missed a good bratwurst. Every place I went to looking to get that brat I had in Germany disappoint. (There was a street vendor in Milwaukee that was close.) But at a quick lunch this week, I finally found it here and it was cheap for London standards. A flavorful, juicy brat... More

I had the bratwurst and it was great. The sausage was very good quality and good value for money. We were in a hurry so didn't have chips or any of the sides but it all looked good. The service was lovely they chatted to us about our plans for the day and theatres in London whilst waiting. Well recommended.

Trying to avoid the rain (and sober up a little!) we ended up in zermans - what a treat!! The curry bratwurst was delicious as was the smokey bratwurst. The staff were friendly. Slightly overpriced for a sausage, however a tasty no frills fast food option.
