    Big fan of Austrian / German food, visited Vienna a few times and Essen's schnitzel is the real deal, best in Sydney!

    Pork knuckle is nice. It is massive so order to share between two and order a litre of tap beer to go with it.

    Without any doubt the best schnitzel in Sydney. You'd better give it a try!

    The schnitzel is awesome; try them with any of the sauces! The rösti you get as part of the meal is awesome! (Picture is of Jäger Schnitzel)

    I ordered the pork knuckle and was very disappointed! It looked impressive but it was a big bone and hard to get the meat off -mostly fat. They don't even have German beer on tap!

    Schnitzel is good, and massive. Pork knuckle is also massive but no crackly... I would not recommend the knuckle. Actually very dissappointed.
