Since 2008 Herman ze German is providing Londoners with the most wonderful Wurst money can buy. What is it with Germans and their love for sausages? We don’t know, but fact is, there’s nothing quite like enjoying a Wurst-snack with French fries and sauerkraut at Herman ze German’s Fitzrovia location. Offering you and inspired selection of Chili Beef sausage, original Bockwurst and authentic Bratwurst, Herman delivers the goods, Wurst-wise. But their other offerings aren’t far off either, with great beer and German lemonades accompanying your meal. Ja!
The legendary Black Forest in South Germany is the home to Florian and Azadeh, and, to no small surprise, also to most excellent Wurst. Sharing with you the love for sausage and other German delights, Herman ze German has come to Fitzrovia to properly educate you on the taste of simply great fine quality sausages and sauces, French fries and sauerkraut. The sausages are directly imported from the Black Forest region and come in three kinds: Chilli Beef, smooth and smoky Bockwurst and authentic Bratwurst that’s just too good with a dap of spicy mustard.
The sausages are gluten and lactose free and parboiled, so they make a great snack for everyone. The location in Fitzrovia is a perennial favourite among the reviewers on TripAdvisor and Yelp and showcases everything culinary teutonic. And how about this: Have Herman ze German organize a barbecue at your place or at your office. Ja, total! Herman, having toured countless festivals with his trailer and grill, will make this an event to remember and has the experience to show for it. Just ask them and they will make you an offer. Just for the record: We are biiiig fans of the Wurstmann. Or, as Herman ze German is fond of saying: Our Wurst is simply ze best.
Really nice place with very good beer (white German beer) and proper meat bratwurst sausages! Could recommend for small/medium size companies. Also you could ask them for take away.
Original german junk food! Best curry wurst just like home!!! We went to the one in Soho. They have imported bratwurst from the black forest with great sauce and fritz coke. I’ll return whenever I feel homesick.
If you want to meet friends for a quick meal, this place does the trick. Buy a beer and wait for them. Go back and buy food whenever you want. 5 of us had a good time. I felt like I was a student in Munich again (40 years later)
Good Foods, nice fries chatic stuff and a strange Location, pretty good in all! We will com eback in the next years whe we vistit London again.
I've been to a different Herman ze German before and it was great. The man sat us down and talked through the menu. This one, however, no menu and you have to pick what you want on arrival which is kinda on the spot. They don't even have the hot dog, chips and drink offer displayed, I had to ask. Anyways the man was nice enough, but having asked for two of the above meals, it was brought down fairly quickly but only one meal. The man hadn't run through one as a meal deal and when I said to the ladies, it took two of them and going up and down straits to say there was a mistake. When my partner suggested bringing the extra chips down and settling it on our way out or it would all get cold, they said no. My partner said to take these items back as they were already going cold and he had to go back up and get a refund and run it through again. A bit later they brought our food down which was clearly the same as the cheese had conguiled instead of being warm and bubbly. They gave us extra chips I'm sure but by this point we were so hungry we didn't bother complaining about the fact it was cold. Which is a shame because I really rate this place having had such a good expenrince at the other stores, who clearly know how to do it better.
Cute little place, awesome selection of German food! We tried a few different dishes of curry sausages and schnitzel which tasted delicious and 100% authentic. Only negative is that I booked a table as a birthday surprise for a friend but when we arrived the staff wasn't very welcoming, no one greeted us even after we went to the main counter and we just had to find an empty table by ourselves as the booking didn't seem to bother anyone.
The food is always great at Herman Ze German, and the staff were really friendly and helpful. Our table was ready for is when we got there (even though we were 15 minutes late). Everything we ordered arrived quickly and everyone left feeling very full and happy at the end of the night!
Lively canteen atmosphere and the sausages were nice but not as fabulous as I expected. Great crispy chips though. The basement where we sat was dark and the seating (wooden benches) not what you call comfy. There is an allure in the basic decor of the place but I expected the currywurst to be more on par with what I've eaten in Germany. Worth a visit though especially after a late night in town.
Food quality and variety was excellent. Table service was good, although if you have reserved a table, don't expect to be shown to your table as you will have to hunt for your name amongst the reservations in the downstairs area. Would definitely recommend for a casual, fairly-priced dinner.
I found the staff very helpful. However the restaurant downstairs is a bit dingy. The food was delicious and as tasty as one could expect be it a German sausage. The wild garlic bratwurst was the tastiest. The sauces weren't that how, I had the burner and wish I had the ringer. But overall a pleasant experience.
