OK so it's not the *best* Mediterranean but it's solid and consistent. We regularly order takeout from here and they always do us right. Creamy, smoky babaganoush. Good lentil soup. Chicken can sometimes be a little dry but that's what you get the sauce for. And the "pizzas" are pretty tasty as well.

The service is so great in this little restaurant. The waiters are always smiling and happy. The portions are large and you'll definitely leave feeling full. Very flavorful and delicious. They also offered complimentary mint tea and dessert!!

Not bad, but nothing to rave about... you get what you pay for.

...Just not great. The food is fine, but nothing spectacular. I used to live next door to Black Iris, and it was fine for a quick falaffel. But I think the menu is a few dollars overpriced for what you get.

This is a cute little place. Unfortunately, the food is a bit bland. There are much better restaurants in this neighborhood

Try the lamb hajin. It is great; i lived in the middle-east for 18 years and i know what good food should tast like. This joint is nothing short of what you would get over there.

The Black Iris is by far the best Middle Eastern food I've had in Brooklyn. Order a platter and find a heaping plate of falafel, slow roasted chicken or gently cooked lamb before you. The pizzas are delicious - try the one with eggplant. A recently added Moroccan Corner of the menu also boasts new delicacies. The service is superb, and the food comes out quickly. Those looking to save money should also note it's BYOB, but they're happy to provide you with wine glasses and an opener.
