A Thai takeaway and restaurant is set to open its second Northern Ireland location in east Belfast, it can be revealed.
Camile’s first foray into the city was at a former Marks & Spencer Simply Food unit on Belfast’s Lisburn Road. The firm, which is based in Dublin, created around 25 new jobs with the new restaurant.
The unit close to the Chelsea Wine Bar has been empty for more than two years after M&S relocated to bigger premises on the other side of the road.
It’s now taking on a site vacated by the Co-op supermarket in the Ballyhackamore area of east Belfast.
Commercial property firm TDK acted for the firm. Stephen Deyermond of TDK, said: “Camile is trading really well on the Lisburn Road and we expect Ballyhackamore will also do very well. Ballyhackamore has quickly established itself as one of Belfast’s main foodie destinations and the addition of Camile adds to the already great offer in the neighbourhood.
“TDK are delighted to have been at the forefront of the Ballyhackamore regeneration, having also let the Pizza Express, Caffe Nero and Clements units. We are still interested in adding to the chain in the Greater Belfast area, in locations that will complement the Lisburn Road and Ballyhackmore units”.
In a review of Camile on the Lisburn Road last December, Belfast Telegraph food critic Joris Minne said it was a “welcome addition to Lisburn Road”.
