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 loved the baked goods found here along with the mouth watering pastries! We went here twice because we loved it so much. Prices are reasonable

We ate here last night and although the waiters were friendly the food was awful, the pasta inparticular. Other food was average at best, trying to do to many styles, when sadly it can be hard to get authentic local food. Best avoid, there are better places in Kandy.

Ate here twice - lovely atmosphere and the food was delicious both times. The manger offered something off the menu when I couldn't decide what to have.

I have a mixed feeling about the food here. While some things tasted good. Some were just not that great. The service is decent but food is overpriced. It could have something to do with the grand appearance of dining area. In the days to follow I had much better food in other places.

It's nice place,and for us clean. A little expensive. Before you give order make sure how much food is come, because we order and staff not explain it was so much food, you will resting money plus food, cause you can't eat all. Take care, enjoy you trip in Kandy
