Babette, Casual French Japanese Restaurant & Bar!

987FM DJ Darren Wee is out with a new casual French-Japanese restaurant concept along Tyrwhitt Road at the recently established Parc Sovereign Hotel. Expanding on his previous location at Chillax Cafe, Babette Restaurant & Bar will serve up selections that harmonize French and Japanese culinary signatures into a single dish and at family friendly prices.
