My wife and I had an early lunch at Diran this afternoon. I'm so sorry that we only just today found this wonderful little restaurant. We were wandering around Mercado Norte and by chance stumbled upon this charming Arab-Armenian restaurant tucked away in a back...corner of the market. We were warmly greeted by one of the proprietors (I assume she is one of the proprietors), who sat us down and explained the menu and made some great suggestions. We tried the phyllo-dough empanadas, the hummus, baba ghanoush and we each had a shawarma sandwich on fresh pita bread. Everything was outstanding: fresh, bold flavors; wonderful, warm breads; and friendly, welcoming service. We can't wait to go back and try more delicious dishes.More

This place is incredible! I went for lunch with my boyfriend - the friendly staff were so welcoming and helpful with the menu. The menu also had English translations. The food was so good - I highly recommend a visit while in Cordoba

Nestled in a corner of Mercado Norte (a wonderful site), Diran is a hidden gem. Luckily, I played 20 questions with locals during my 4-month stay in Córdoba. When asked where to eat the best "comida árabe" (Middle Eastern food),which in this city is mostly...Libanese, Syrian, or Armenian (I'm telling you what it means for locals), most people, especially if you are a foregner, will send you to Al-Malek, the fancy option (nothing wrong with it, love it). But then, you start getting information about what are the joints where locals get Middle Eastern food to go or without much fuss. And that's how I got to Diran, which by the way, it's one of the few places offering Armenian dishes. Their menu is huge for such a small kitchen. If you plan to go on a Saturday, get there when they open if you dream of getting a small table. I went by myself and sat at the counter. They were friendly and offered a few suggestions. I wanted to try as many items as possible (they are willing to prepare you half portion of some of the dishes!!!). Very modest stand restaurant delivering amazing food, tasty, fresh. Forget about what you think this food taste like (outside their country of origin, of course), the food at Diran will send you to food Nirvana. Foodie fellows out there, run to Diran! I had one of their "empanada árabe" and it was delicious (one of the best I ate during my stay in the city). I also had a small portion of hummus and my taste buds were tingling. But then, I tried the "Badelyan" (roasted eggplant with ground beef); it was out of this world: I almost burst into tears. Yes, that good. Get on a cab to Mercado Norte and get there around 11am, stroll the mercado for half hour, and then head straight to Diran.More

Wonderful food and great service, which is not usual here. The food was really tasty but a bit spicy. Small place as it is inside the Market.

We visited for a Saturday lunch and were amazed by each and every dish. I didn’t expect to have such flavourful and authentic Middle Eastern food in Argentina. Come hungry and order lots to share. Best meal we had in our Córdoba weekend.

We ate there twice in May, 2018, it was wonderful. Can't wait to get back. Their food is wonderful. We introduced our local friends to Diran and they loved it too and returned after we had returned home to the US.

Had lunch at this place on a Tuesday afternoon in Nov'18. Quality and freshness of food - Excellent Ambience - so/so. the tables are very close to each other and lack privacy. Ease of finding location - Its very hard to find it. No where...its written that its inside the central market building. Its very very small place and inside a big building and not exactly as per address written on trip advisor! It took me close to 20 minutes to find it! Service - The owners are super nice. The waiters did not seem to understand the menu well. Menu - Lot of items on menu not available. The menu is bilingual Food to recommend - Try their jar of lemonade ( one of the best) and their hummus. Prices - low - Spent 550 pesos ( 15 usd) on a lunch for 2 people and we were satiated. Overall - I recommend despite some mini flaws. I hope you found this review helpful. In case you did, please do not hesitate to click on "I found the review helpful" tab.More
