It seems to have closed and reopened with new management, according to the Reader.

As Rob points out in his July 2005 post Afghan Restaurant changed hands. It's my understanding it has changed hands once again, making this the third owner in the same space/name. Far as the Reader review, they don't say when that particular review was written. It's not just the Reader though, none of the newspapers or magazines provide dates for their reviews, at least none I'm aware of.
Rob also posted about Afghan Restaurant under the first owner, as did I.

It is an alchemical ingredient, sometimes instantly recognizable, yet myterious and elusive. Your grandmother must have tasted this. And knowing Abdul Qazi and his wife for over 10 years, I find it surprising that it took me so long to figure it out. Thanks. I just got it.
Most recently, I have been following the story of the closing of the place near Steppenwolf, and the ensuing business decisions.
