Authentic but not cheap

Really good little place, with primarily friendly German staff, who know what they're talking about. This is one of the only places in London to get a really authentic schnitzel and various wursts (curry, brat, bock). Schnitzels come with really nice salad and creamed carrot, and delicious fries... read more

Herman ze German is a great place for a quick bite to eat. It's ideally situated just round the corner from Charing Cross, and the service was very efficient.

I decided to give this place a try as I liked the concept and read about it in one of city's popular magazines. I left disappointed as I found it over-priced and didn't like their cooking. I've had street food of this kind what was way better! Sorry, won't be visiting again. On the positive side of things, service was... More

Unfortunately there was... More

The quality of the food is beyond doubt but I think the price it's being sold at is just a bit too high to make it value for money. Would recommend it if money isn't any particular issue.

This place was amazing... told about it by a friend so gave it a try whilst in London for the week! Authentic German Wurst and fries, topped with onions at no extra cost! Paid extra for currywurst sauce also. Quick service and friendly staff, at a reasonable price! just over £5 for a meal!
