Using GPS to reach Marakesh Restaurant

We recommend using the intersection of Rt 46 EAST and Edwards Road for your GPS target instead of our street address. Our parking lot main entrance is a few feet further down Rt 46, past the intersection. See below for our explanation and directions.

If you've MISSED our Rt. 46 entrance, you DO NOT NEED MULTIPLE U-TURNS to get to us!

Just continue driving east on Rt. 46 and then make 2 right turns (either through Rutgers Lane, or New Road, etc.) to Edwards Rd. and enter our parking lot entrance on Edwards Rd.

Why intersection rather than street address?

While most visitors GPS units locate our restaurant without issue, some GPS units, depending on make and model, lead visitors to the wrong location or yield directions that not optimal. Using the intersection instead of the street address would alleviate both types of problems reported by our visitors:

  1. Some GPS units don't show our street address but instead find "321 Rt 46" in a neighboring town. We are in Parsippany, and some visitors have been guided to Mountain Lakes, or other nearby towns, since the street numbers on Rt 46 change by township. The intersection approach avoids this issue.
  2. Some GPS units find our street address or the restaurant name, and then yield guidance instructions along Rt. 80 East exiting to Rt 46 East at exit 47B, right after the Rt 280 exit.
    Please avoid this approach - if you are arriving from the west, please exit Rt. 80 EARLIER. You can either exit on N. Beverwyck Road and take Rt. 46 East to our Rt. 46 entrance, or you can take the Rt. 280 East exit to New Road (left, northbound) and immediately turn left on Edwards Rd. to reach our Edwards Rd. entrance.
    The problem with taking exit 47B is that the driver then needs to immediately cross all the way from the leftmost lane of Rt 46 to the rightmost lane to get to our entrance in a very short distance.
