If you can’t make it to Morocco, then Marakesh Restaurant, in Parsippany is THE place to go when you crave couscous. But, first, one of the simple pleasures is the dish of marinated olives and flat bread that is offered each table! The following are highly recommended although it would be a LOT for one sitting!

Hummus is traditional but with a little something extra (maybe it’s the atmosphere?)
Moroccan Cigars - are flaky dough filled cigar-shaped goodies with a delicious filling of chopped beef and spices.
Couscous - Lamb and/or chicken - and ask for an order of merguez (spicy lamb sausage) to add to the dish along with some harissa - the mideast hot salsa equivalent!
The setting is simple and authentic (I've lived, briefly in Morocco) and the prices reasonable.
Bon ap!

Our family group enjoyed this diverting experience and fine food on the night before Easter. The 8 course Sultan's dinner offers a broad survey of favorite Moroccan dishes. For our table of five, three entrees, lamb tagine, lemon chicken and mixed kebab were perfectly prepared and delicious. Service is timed to coincide with the performance which was a disco version (lasers included) of belly dancing. Having spent two weeks in Morocco, we never saw a belly dancer there and were bemused to see this one. The music became too loud to talk also.
Seating is mostly on banquettes with brass tray topped tables for dining.
Our adult kids liked the dinner alot and many multigenerational groups were present celebrating with each other and the belly dancer.
Service is excellent. BYOB

First visit. We had the 8 course prix fixe dinner. Glad we did as everyone had a different favorite.
We loved the entertainment. Will definitely return again.

I've been here a few times and loved it every time. I'm not sure what true authentic Moroccan food tastes like, but I would image this is it. Everything I've had always tasted fresh and delightful! The atmosphere is great with the belly dancer to the couches and decorations and even the plates and glasses they use. Its a little expensive, but you are getting a show with your dinner.

Very impressed with the food having made a sport of searching out authentic food outside of NYC. Delicious, high quality food, served without delays and with warmth. Don't skip the appetizers on the way to a great meal. Decor is fun, traditional and very comfortable.
Look forward to a return visit soon.
