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.

Delighted with our food & the personalised service at Cossachok tonight. When my friend arrived, she was invited to chose her table, & the waiting staff were friendly, timely but totally unobtrusive. We both had the 2 course deal. The mains were outstanding: Georgian spicy chicken was such a rich unusual flavour & the Moscow Blintzes, with delicate spinach sauce,... More

We wanted to try something different and were so glad we did. It is very authentic; decor and music, and the food was out of this world. Good portion sizes even though we used a meal deal. Excellent service from the Russian staff, friendly and helpful without being overbearing. We will definitely be going back and recommend you try it.

We didn't eat here as we just popped in for a drink after visiting the photography space next door. Lovely cocktails at a mind blowing £3.50 each. Amazing!
