Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “An Afghan restaurant's sales dropped 80% after the Taliban takeover, leaving its owner fearing for its future”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Until three months ago, sales were steadily increasing at Laziz Mahal, a newly renovated fast-food restaurant in Afghanistan's capital, Kabul.

The restaurant's owner, Mojeburahman Musleh, told Insider he is now struggling to keep his business up and running. He said the regime has made everything worse and that "everything looks gloomy" for people like him.

Musleh is not alone. Since the Taliban assumed power over Kabul, many Afghans have been left distressed over their future. 

"Laziz Mahal Restaurant has been badly affected by [the] change of regime in Kabul, most of our potential customers have left the country and those who [are] left do not afford to eat at [the] restaurant," Musleh told Insider. 

He said he used to have regular customers who worked in government institutions and the private sector.  Now they don't appear as much because offices in the capital are closed.
