Case Study - Camile Thai Kitchen

Camile Thai Kitchen provides healthy award-winning Thai food using natural gas

Background

Camile Thai Kitchen is a takeaway and restaurant group providing high quality Thai food for collection, delivery or dining in. Opening their first branch just off Dublin’s South Circular Road in 2010, they instantly became a hit. They have now grown to over 20 restaurants in Ireland and the UK, with ambitious growth planned for the years ahead. The majority of Camile Thai Kitchen’s high-performance cooking appliances consume natural gas, and a typical restaurant consumes three times more gas than electricity. When seeking new premises, the availability of natural gas is a vital factor for the easy and rapid roll-out of the branch network.

RESULTS

  • Substantial monetary savings

  • Instantaneous and easily controllable

  • Constant fuel supply

Natural gas installation process

Every Camile Thai Kitchen takeaway and restaurant consumes natural gas while their central production facility in North Dublin consists of a large state-of-the-art facility. They install only the most modern and efficient gas equipment in all of their kitchens. When they acquire a new premises they usually either need to connect to the Gas Networks Ireland network for the first time or upsize the gas meter that is already in a premises to facilitate the natural gas consumption requirements of a Camile Thai kitchen. This process has been effortless and seamless over the years as Gas Networks Ireland works in conjunction with Utility Saver to manage every aspect of the project.

Environment

Sustainability is very important to Camile Thai Kitchen. Auto cut-off switches are used on their gas wok cookers which helps reduce water consumption by up to 40%. They only consume certifiable green electricity. Their waste is segregated to maximise recycling and reduce landfill build-up. Utilising renewable gas will be essential for Camile Thai Kitchen in the near future.

“The versatility and instantaneous nature of cooking with natural gas allows our busy restaurants to provide high quality, healthy Thai food for our guests. This is made much easier for our team to achieve by using natural gas appliances”
