Glasgow is the culinary capital of Scotland, boasting an array of restaurants serving up cuisine from every corner of the globe. Over on King Street in the city centre you’ll find Cossachok, a cross between an art gallery and restaurant offering diners an authentic taste of Russia through its array of dishes from the Soviet Union. With handmade pew-style benches, red walls and traditional folk decor, as well as live music events taking place, Glasgow’s Cossachok has a vibrant atmosphere, gathering itself a loyal fanbase since it was established all the way back in 1998. Make your way to Merchant City restaurant for a taste of traditional Russian cooking.
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.
The food was delicious. I let the waiter choose my meal and it did not disappoint. The staff were also very friendly. I would go back.
Very delicious food and great environment. As someone with allergies, I always have to select my meals carefully, but the staff were kind, attentive, and patient with me and my allergies and helped me select something delicious to try for the night.
Lovely quirky decoration. Service is great. Menu has a good choice without being overwhelming. Only coment is that there are not enough vegetables with the meal and there wasn't any side dishes to order. Wouldl still highly recommend a visit.
