Watch the world and his wife go past from a seat at a bench inside this interesting take on fast food in an area where you are not exactly stuck for choice. Currywurst and fries a very reasonable £6 and you can select your wurst and strength of sauce. Not much room inside when they're busy.

I came here for an evening dinner, who doesn't love a bit of german sausage! I got the currywurst in a roll with their pommes. The food came really quickly and was very tasty. No complaints really, the chips were especially good. To sum up, if you are in the area looking for a quick bite to eat at really... More

Its a quick stop German themed cafe/take away. On the busiest street for restaurants in Soho, this place has to be good and it doesn't disappoint. Authentic German hot dogs, fries and beers with fast service and nice surroundings - even had a big TV to watch the World Cup! Friendly staff help with slightly confusing menu - meal deal... More

Every time I visit London I make an effort to eat here however after my recent experience I will not be bothering in future. I still enjoy the food however the service is atrocious. Every element of our order was incorrect and it was not worth mentioning it to the serving staff, they didn't care. Good food, rubbish staff.

Ridiculously overpriced for a hot dog, not only that but the tables were sticky (sat down, felt disgusting so moved to second table and it was worse!!) there were bits of food on the floor that felt like you were walking through a barn, staff were not helpful and needed 3 people to get my order right. we bought a...

I saw a mouse on the surface by the area where the chips are served, when I told the girl who served me she was very rude to me and swore at me, I am very disappointed, plus I asked for a plain sausage and was given a spicy one, chips had too much salt on them.

Being frequent visitors to Bavaria we were looking forward to visiting this place. We left a bit disappointed. Food itself is OK but the portions are on the small side and you get your food served in takeaway type containers. Reasonable prices though we thought. Service was hit and miss and the staff that you order the food off did... More

Was taken to the Old Compton Street one by a German friend. Where do I start? The place does not allow relax seating, the waiter taking orders don't speak English and neither understand German, the German sausages are cut into pieces and the same chilly sauce is dumped over them. In the space of 20 minutes we ate and left.... More
