More about Cossachok, Glasgow

Cossachok stands as a portal to the past, taking diners back in time through sharing the flavours of the former Soviet Union at their charming premises in Glasgow city centre. The food selection here features a range of dishes from all over Russia, Georgia, and the Balkans, as well as several options for vegetarian diners. Whether you’re nostalgic for the old days or interested in experiencing the varied cuisine of the former Soviet Union first hand, Glasgow’s Cossachok will not disappoint. They’re open every day of the week for lunch and dinner, so there’s never a bad time to stop into this Merchant City restaurant.

From old favourites like beef stroganoff and borscht to lesser known Russian dishes, the menu is packed with choices – we recommend trying the Moscow blintzes (pancakes stuffed with turkey mince, leek, rice and parsley, covered in a rich spinach sauce). Located in the heart of Merchant City, just off of Trongate on King Street, Cossachok is Glasgow’s premier place to enjoy a taste of Russia. Book a table and head to this Glasgow city centre restaurant and enjoy the flavours from years gone by.

Really good authentic Eastern European/ Russian food. Hearty, delicious and full of soul!! Being Polish I’ve had some expectations towards taste and they certainly did not disappoint. Would recommend to anybody that would love to try something outside the box. In addition the staff was exceptional and very attentive. Thank you Cossachok!

Very friendly and helpful staff, great place for trying something a bit different. They also accept the taste card. Gluten free options are also available as most things on the menu are.
