Visited here Monday evening 24 November as it looked different and we were hungry. I ordered Chicken Schnitzel with chips and salad, my companion, a fan of German food ordered Pork Schnitzel, chips and salad, and we had 2 cokes. The food arrived reasonably quickly. I thought mine was just OK, my companion thought it was terrible, and a complete... More

Been here a couple of times now. If you want a very different twist on fast food this is the place to go. We had the chilli wurst and the bock wurst, both with onion, sauerkraut and fries. The staff taking the order were great and helped us through the menu options and the food and drinks came quite quickly... More

I love Herman ze German. Really tasty sausages washed down with german beer. Friendly service. Only problem with my latest visit is why do they insist on keeping the restaurant door open in November? I know it makes it look more open but it makes the tables near the door a bit nippy.

I use Hermam Ze German quite often for office lunch as this being quite a decent lunch time eatery nearby London embankment. They have almost every German street food with authenticity embedded into them. In majority of instances, I opt for currywurst with frites. They have a nice selection of sausages and I generally opt for either chili beef or... More

Came here with friends and it was absolutely delicious. The smoked pork sausage with hot curry sauce and fries with crispy onions is beautiful! Definitely recommend and would come back in a heart beat.

Anyone who has ever been to Germany will understand what this place is all about, simple but tasty German street food. Exactly like it is from Germany and a great little find on a recent trip down to London. Great value for filling a gap!

Went to the one on Charlotte Street and had a bock. Mrs Southbanksy had a brat. Both really good and as good as I have had in Germany. It was topped off with a Paulaner beer. Service was good, the place wasn't busy and the decor is quirky and pretty cool. Pretty good value, but then I love German food.

I never miss to go there when I am in Soho around lunch time. Love the atmosphere, the staff and the quick, friendly service. I am now a Vegetarian, so I don't have the Currywurst any more (but I know it's great). Great concept, great place.
