This mini-chain specialising in authentic German sausages certainly boasts a pretty good reputation - we gave the Soho branch a glowing review, and all three venues, including this Villiers Street branch, are usually pretty busy.
Most people are heading down for the wurst, brought in from the Black Forest where they're made by a butcher called Fritz - it could hardly get more German. There are three types available: a bockwurst (a smoked pork sausage), a bratwurst (a minced pork and veal combo) and a chilli beef sausage, made with pork, beef and a hit of chilli.
You can order them in a roll or with a salad, and you can jazz them up with things like mustard, jalapenos, crispy onions, sauerkraut, cheese and curry sauce. Schnitzels, veggie options and sides of fries, potato salad and coleslaw also feature.
Our third addition to the family, at Charlotte Street, Fitzrovia, is the largest of the trio with raw concrete walls and brass mincers adorning our signature neon sign 'Our wurst is ze best!'.

If you want a hearty bratwurst in London then look no further. This place does exactly what it says, great sausages in fantastic brioche or bread rolls, with your choice of toppings. The crispy onions and jalapenos are excellent additions, if I may say so. And at £5.95 including fries, there really is nowhere better to go for lunch/light dinner in Soho.
I was looking for proper German sausages to eat not only in Christmas and then I luckily discovered Herman Ze German while walking in Embankment one day. These guys make very delicious, gluten-free sausages in 4 different types. I either go for bockwurst (smoky pork) or currywurst but they also have bratwurst (pork and veal), chilli beef (beef and pork), and leberkase (oven baked pork). You can have the sausages on their own, in a freshly baked roll or with healthier chips with no extra fat. Try also the yummy crispy onions! Besides, staff is friendly, prices come reasonable, you can even grab a loyalty card and have your tenth sausage for free as I did recently! It’s open everyday till late as an alternative to bad quality fast food such as the odd kebab van you have to rely on after binge drinking on Saturday nights.
