Description: Opened in 1998 and is Scotland’s first and only authentic Russian Restaurant. This venue aims to keep its Russian roots intact, bringing cuisine, hospitality and culture to the heart of Glasgow’s Merchant City.The kitchen’s allegiance to former Soviet territories - from Russia and Moldavia to Armenia and Georgia - is evident on the menu featuring borscht, country soup made with cabbage, tomato, beetroot, garlic and coriander; Rostovsky platter, a duet of beetroot-raisin and carrot-garlic salads; aubergine ratatouille accompanied by just-baked pancakes.

My second visit - this time on a 5pm deal with a family group. All of us enjoyed different starters and very tasty mains and the service was excellent. Highly recommended

This is my second visit to Cafe Cossachok and again I had a great experience. The food is great! We started with the Borscht soup which was surprisingly light and very tasty. I went on to have a chicken dish (Chakhokhbili) which was lovely - huge portion of chicken and sauce with just the right amount of rice on the... More

2 courses on the lunch menu for 6.95. Great value. We both had the sliced pork chop to start and the meatballs for mains. Both were tasty and portion size was spot on. The dressing on the salad was lovely, it tasted a bit like gherkins? Tried the Czech draught lager which was good and reasonably priced for a restaurant.... More

We always drove past this place and said - we must try that place. It looks different and interesting. We didn't know what to expect but, were pleasantly surprised by their menu. There is a wide variety of what you can order. There are vegetarian, chicken, pork and beef dishes. So certainly something for everyone. We started with a starter... More

We visited it with our two small kids who are picky eaters. They loved everything from borsch to bliny. The food was delicious and I would recommend this place to everyone!

I arrived with my wonderful girlfriend early on a Saturday evening, and had absolutely no problem being seated,as the place was rather quiet. We were seen to attentively by the waiting staff and our order was taken promptly. Between the ordering and arrival of the starter, the place began to busy up, highlighting how popular this atmospheric Russian/East European cafe... More

I've now had several great visits to Cossachok. As I am vegan and trying to be wheat-free I didn't know if there would be anything I could eat, but there were a few things to choose from, which I was delighted about. The borsht is out of this world and I highly recommend it, and the vegetable stew I had... More

My friend and I booked through 5 pm and the deal was excellent value for money. Salmon for starters and pork for mains. Food was excellent and portions large, we even had desert which was light and refreshing, ice cream with an expresso coffee Service was slow but didn't bother us, plenty of time to chat. We would go back
