Since 1990, Kashtan has been serving the West Hollywood community with groceries, Russian candies, cookies, prepared food, fish, meat, vegetables and a restaurant next door. Russian newspapers and magazines are offered behind the counter, along with medicines. Sandwiches to-go are very popular here, but Kashtan has many other dishes. Pre-cooked meals are in a display case and all of the pricing is very reasonable. Parking is easy with free lots on some of the corners and metered parking on the street. Everyone is treated as family and a great staff welcomes all of the customers. The restaurant specializes in Uzbekistan dishes and is open from noon through dinner. Shish-kabob and many regional dishes are also served.
