Use the rikaichan popup dictionary or your favorite reference tool with my transcription below the photo if you need help reading this sign.

I was struck by how confident the Lotteria chain is about their ‘exquisite’ new burger.  Not just in the naming, but in offering a money back guarantee if you don’t agree with their assessment.

Or are they simply confident that  customers won’t take advantage of the limited time promotion, even if they’re a bit underwhelmed?  My first guess is that the vast majority of Japanese customers would be loath to go back to the counter and ask for a refund in such a case.

The numbers below refer to the kanji I’ve transcribed below the photo, and correspond to their order of appearance in both Heisig’s Remembering the Kanji and Kanji in Context.
