Square Meal Review of Cossachok ?

Opened in 1998, Scotland’s first Russian restaurant and culinary ambassador combines the virtues of a traditional café with some cultural add-ons including an art gallery. The interior is a folksy mix of red walls, colourful paintings and handmade furniture, with traditional shawls covering the ceiling, while the kitchen shows its allegiances to the old order, taking inspiration from former Soviet territories such as Moldavia, Armenia and Georgia. Expect country borscht, tzimes (Yiddish-style duck with apricot, carrots and dumplings), Uzbek lamb pilaff, beef stroganoff, Siberian pelmeni stuffed with a spicy beef and pork or savoury St. Petersburg pancakes topped with mushroom and cheese sauce – plus an assortment of cakes with names like Kutuzov and Alenoushka. Live music is the big attraction on Sunday evenings, with everything from Russian folk music to Klezmer, jazz, cabaret and open-mic sessions.
