Fast food German style. Not very expensive, but fast and easy. Huge piece of schnitzel was tasty. Brats are what you would expect. Also serve sides like potato salad. Friendly, helpful staff. Abt £8 per person. Good for takeaway.

I know when in London you would think I would be sampling the English fare. Well I took a little side trip to Germany on Villiers Street.

We have went there over 5 times in the last months. It is amazing. The tastes are excellent. The only negative point during this period is that they stop offering bratmiester which in my view was their best dish.

Herman ze German is a great place for a quick bite. My Bockwurst with Mustard was great and the crispy Onions an interesting and welcome addition. I shall return.

Having visited Germany recently, I learned how they loved their sausages. But we are talking big tasty sausages and better than what we normally have in the UK. Herman ze German is comparable with what you can get in Berlin. While I haven't yet tried them all, the Currywurst is good.

Popped in late in the evening and was impressed with the quality of the food. Great choice as an alternative to some of the big fast food chains nearby.

This is the best curry I have eaten since I lived in Mannheim Germany!!! Very tiny place and the locals eat here, so lunchtime is busy. Enjoy!

This little friendly eatery is very nearly the best currywurst I have experienced outside Düsseldorf. Great flavour and the sauce is perfect. It is well worth a visit. Only beaten by a Christmas market in Bedford 2 years ago!
