About Gedhawa, Harry Styles’ go-to Bangkok diner
Gedhawa, located on Sukhumvit 33, is a Northern Thai diner that has become a local favourite for tasty dishes with affordable prices. It’s a go-to restaurant to take visiting friends and tourists, but also authentic enough in taste for locals to enjoy. Whilst most common Thai food staples are present, there are also some lesser known dishes on the menu.
It’s understandable why the place turns visitors into regulars easily, including Harry, who was also visiting Gedhawa for a second time. As a photo of the star together with Chef Joom went viral over the weekend, people have become absolutely touched by their friendship.
