ASHEVILLE, N.C. -- Popular Asheville restuarant Little Bee Thai opened in its new location Friday without fanfare, though with lots of local anticipation.

From its beginnings as a food truck and also as a restaurant located in a gas station, the independently owned eatery is now in the big leagues with a new location downtown.

"We got asked almost every night, when are we gonna start a restaurant. When are we gonna start a restaurant?" co-owner Rick Corcoran told News 13 earlier this week.

The hours the restaurant has shared for next week are below:

Open Tuesday-Saturday
Lunch 11 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Dinner 5 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.

Little Bee is located at 45 S. French Broad Ave, in Suite 190 A in the Downtown Market.
