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.

We visited this place with Family/Friends for the lunch. They took aprox. 40 min to serve our foods, The waiter who served us didn't bother even to offer us drinking water. :) But their hot butter cuttlefish dish was tasty..

I've always thought that White house is just a plain pastry shop. pastries are displayed up front of the establishment. Our friend took us for dinner here and the restaurant (with a really nice ambiance) upstairs is what it's all about. The servers were very nice and polite and they serve good indian food ( I ordered palak paneer and... More

After eating junkfood(burger king, pizza hut,etc) and at other local restaurants, we had got sick of the food Kandy had to offer. Walked into the white house randomly and were very pleasantly surprised with the restaurant upstairs. Ambience is nice and clean (unlike other places in Kandy unfortunately) and the food was great! It had flavour and tasted fresh. The... More

Got there early before dinner time , so I order a takeout from counter. It was rice with beef, the vegetable within is fresh, rice is delicious, beef is bit dry and chewy but tastes good. Specially I am a Chinese who is very picky with rice.
