Great sausages!

Noticed this place on a side street and felt compelled to check it out. Had a chilli sausage with jalapeños, sauerkraut etc and it was absolutely gorgeous. Very reasonably priced to! Well worth checking out!

We got into this small but sympathetic diner at a time when we wanted some fast food but other than hamburger or such thing, so we chose to have schni-po-sa with schnitzer. It was simply the food I wanted at the moment. The portions are also quite reasonable. The staff is kind. Definitely recommended. :-)

This place had been on my list for a long time and it did not disappoint. This is a jazzed up version of a German Imbiss (fast food) place with the Currywurst at the forefront. Small but perfectly formed place with many menu options. For us, it had to be the Currywurst as it's the one thing I miss about... More

We went as a group of 9 to Herman ze German on a busy Saturday night, having booked a table in advance. The staff were very friendly, sat us promptly and were obliging through the course of the night. The food was effectively "fast food" but made in a slightly different way to other restaurants at roughly the same level... More

Grab a piece of Germany in the shape of nice and valuable food. As my first time at this place, I went for the one that looked as the special at that time ('ze Ueber Ding') with jalapeños, onions, melted cheese and even a fair portion of chips in a side, with Fritz Kola (tasty one) as a drink, for...

Cheap and tasty fast food - with really cheerful, helpful staff. Currywurst the best washed down with a pint! (oh and their Wursts are Gluten Free for the coeliacs out there)

We visited the Charlotte Street branch, but I assume the decor and food is the same everywhere. The sausages were delicious, you could really taste the difference between this and what you buy in a supermarket. So in terms of taste, I'd definitely recommend the place. The only thing is for a hotdog and fries, the price is a bit... More

Spotted this place as I was working at a nearby place. Small place, but has all the food anyone who's ever travelled in Germany will recognise - different Wursts, schnitzels and proper German beer and soft drinks too. There's a few tables for dining in, and the pricing is excellent. Will definitely stop by when I'm next in town.

I can't say it was an exceptional exprience, but..Herman ze German offers you: 1. Tasty food (options for vegetarians as well! - veggie wurst:) 2. Fritz-kola!! 3. Affordable prices (you don't pay for full lunch box 20 GBP but less then 10) 4. Nice interior design of the restaurant 5. Finally not another hamburger (even though I really like them,... More
