German restaurants are plentiful, along with Turkish and Thai as well. There are only a couple within walking distance, so you'll have to travel on the metro to nicer parts of town to go out to most restaurants. Costs are bit higher than the States. Fast food meals are around 8-10 euro. Good meals start at 20-30 Euro and work their way up from there. - Jul 2010


All fast food is available, but eating in local restaurant is so much more fun. Most are on par with what you'd pay at a fast food joint anyway, but vastly superior. - Jul 2008
