Great place,real German sausages, chips were also delicious. The curry wasn't quite the same as when in Berlin, but delicious all the same! Reasonably priced !

Just happened to walk past this place and it caught my eye. Got a roll with gorgeous German sausage, bacon and egg,which was very tasty. Also had a bottle of lemonade which was nice and tangy and refreshing

Visited this place tonight after reading trip advisor positive reviews.... Little eating place hidden away on Old Compton street....quick service and very nice food. If you like authentic german sausages, definitely worth a visit!

German sausages, yes. German hospitality, no. Overpriced cheap imitation. Lack of care no service and flat warm 'german' beer. You're better off getting a cheap curry

The sausage in a roll and chips were tasty - but they are just mass produced fast food so nothing to overly impressive. I would recommend going here if you want some quick grease when on the booze.
