Suwanna's Thai Orchid- Asheville

I noticed they have a huge sign on the building that advertises a foreclosure auction at the Buncombe County Courthouse.I guess this means they will be closing soon.I just thought it strange that they were still up and running with that sign out front.Anybody have any info??

  1. If they aren't the owners of the building then that would explain it somewhat. If they rent, then maybe they'll find another location.

    1. re: Leepa

      On a visit about 2-3 months ago Ms. Suwanna told us that she did not have
      to pay the rent at that time because the ownership of the building was in
      receivership, or something to that effect. I guess not it is coming down to
      crunch time when she will have to negotiate a lease with the new owners
      or move to a new site.

    2. Update: I saw today that they are moving to 11 Broadway, right in the midlle of Oriental Row
