Description: White House is a unique, concept restaurant in the heart of Kandy, a beautiful heritage city in the hills of the Central region of Sri Lanka. White House is a Bakery, Café and Restaurant all in one. The café is modern & trendy compared to the laid back, cosy, wooden themed first floor restaurant. White House serves up a multi cuisine menu including some of the best steaks in town. We also have a real Tandoor to delight all those who love their meats char grilled. What’s more, the fresh bakery & pastry products are a real treat to those who crave for indulgence.

Kandy is slightly disappointing food wise, so do not very high hopes. When we finally sat here, we were happy with the ambiance. The Indian food is only okay but they have very specific things that one must order. Their menu has something from every cuisine, pick and choose carefully :) I recommend the Sri Lankan version of Nasi Goreng

First, the food in Kandy is very disappointing and you will find it difficult to do better than this. It has a wide ranging menu - the food is okay but not spectacular but if you are looking for a safe option in the heart of Kandy, this will do. Agree with the previous comments that the staff are lazy... More

We went there for dinner during our stay in Kandy, based on reviews and recommendations on various sites. But we had a horrible experience. We ordered Indian cuisines and they used coconut in the gravy even after re-assuring that the same shall not be done. On top of that, they would not accept the same. It was a horrible experience.

The food was ok, though not perfect. The waiters were careless. The WiFi signal was very poor. On the other hand this place better than average in Sri-Lanka.

We went here for dinner with family during our stay in Kandy. We ordered a few indian dishes. The food tasted good. However, service was very poor. Waiters were not active and we had to wait very long for the food. Good for couples looking for a relaxing and romantic ambience and in no hurry for their food! Also better... More

We stayed at the Kandy City Hotel which is a walk away from the restaurant so the choice of dining here came naturally. As it turned out this was the best part of our day as the culinary delights were fabulous with awesome taste and great quantity for an extremely reasonable price. The ambience and the entire dining setup is... More

Positive : Very good food, very good bread. Negative : We waited too long for the food, more than one hour. Actually, I can understand, because there were so many people. If you go there you should book.
