Well I loved the burgers so much when I came previously this was my fourth time coming up bukowski now this time was a bit disappointing the portion sizes have shrunk immensely as well as the price has risen allot for what it offers, now the burgers over all have shrunk about 7%, the taste hasn't changed much so or may be worth just getting the burger on its own they are still good but missing something, the salad has shrunk 50-65% that came with the set meal additional ordered salad is also cut by half which cost 308 yen was quite a shock of how small and unsatisfying the dressing is no longer good ether and has just been replaced with generic goma dressing photos for reference, the fries well the portion has shrunk as well that comes with the set and were not cooked long enough sadly it was still frozen in the center, the atmosphere of the restaurant has also changed even the music wasn't even funky and welcoming as my previous visits didn't, sorry if I'm sounding harsh in this review is just how things are when I went, guess it can't be helped new owners do these things when they are not passionate about the reputation and too focused on the money

Closing notes, if your in the area get the burger for take out, if your not in the area there are other places

i went to bukowski a few times and spoke to the owner he is a real cool guy , the menu is really awesome and has a great sense of humor, and now to the food! the burgers were really large sized and that to me is only secondary to the taste the paddies were moist and mouth watering! and the buns were really good for bread in japan i find bread their too spongy and chewy but not here you get real bread and he has a range of toppings like extra pickles, bacon,jalapenos,citron pepper, pineapple! an Aussies dream right there my only gripe was no beetroot on the Aussie burger as all Australians know its not complete without that part and the chips were cooked to perfection you also had choices of garlic salt and curry salt and the regular S&P if you want to get away from the city or make a trip to kawagoe this is the place to stop for a large meal for a really reasonable price~! of 1050 yen and the salad is really nice with a fried chivey sesame salad dressing i suggest you order a large one or 2!!!!!!!! i highly recomend the Arron burger its a winner, i will be back once or twice every trip i take from now on!
