... From the Black Forest (Tannen Zäpfle) ! Unfortunately I wasn't served the beer without having food :-( so we tried a curry Wurst (Bratwurst) in the 3rd level out of 4 ob the heat range. It was delicious and spicy but not hot! For sure it's worth for a revisit!

This is the place for all types of food stops: quick lunch, tasty snack, "grab and go", comfort food, end of the night to soak up the alcohol. Service is quick and fast. There is limited seating in the restaurant. Range of Hot Dogs and sauces and fries is immediately overwhelming but easy to work out. There's something for everyone... More

We stopped in for a quick lunch and were blown away with how delicious and quickly our meal arrived. You must try this place.

A trip to London isn't the same without visiting here for me, the staff are friendly, the atmosphere is sweet and the food is awesome! My favourite is the Curry Wurst (spicy sausage curry) mild, which has just enough spice for me but you can get hotter! It's quick service and good portion sizes.

Nice atmosphere, very tasty and generously big sausage. Can eat a light snack without knocking you out for work lunch.

It is what it is - a small place in the laneway on the way down to Embankment Tube station. I was starving on the way home from the theatre and we were coming past Herman's at 10.45pm. It seemed to have people inside which was a good sign. I ordered a currywurst in a roll to takeaway to our... More

If you need to grab something tasty and quick then you can't go wrong here. The food and service is so much better than the large chain burger joints. I wouldn't go out of the way to eat here but on the route from Embankment tube stop to London pubs makes this a place I have visited more than once.... More

Mixed bag here in that my wife's meal was awful and mine was ok'ish at a push. Let's start with hers. The only things on the Menu are Sausages and Schnitzel. Both very German and both easy to get right you'd think. I don't think either dish is a major demand for anybody with a modicum of culinary nous, but... More

A quick and cheap meal straight from Germany. The currywurst are the best I've had outside of Berlin and all the sausages are imported from a local butcher in Germany. Nothing fancy but tasty good well done.

get you bratwurst and schnitzel fix here. With its brat man icon and it's somewhat Germanic beer garden decor, the food here is your basic fare. Nothing to write home about but definitely not a bad place for a quick nosh.
