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.

The reastaurant on the first floor looks really nice! Staff was friendly and food was delicious!!! It was a bit more expensive for budget travelers, but still it was perfect place where to have a dinner!

Indian restaurant, sort of quiet place, clean, mid-price range, the food was served on stands with candles to keep it warm, they don't serve any alcohol, and the service is little slow, but the butter chicken is to die for, never!! had a better one! serious surprise

Nice place to grab a quick mid day fix. Floor managers helpful but waiters are untrained and slow. If your planning on paying the bill notify them 30mins in advance to avoid waiting for it for and additional 30mins.

Fabulous food. Best chicken tikka masala in Sri Lanka. We returned there 3 nights on the trot in a 5 day stay in kandy. Location is fun with a real colonial feel large candlesticks on table and high ceilings. Charming in a "jewel in the crown " way . Go for the food.

Found this restaurant by chance today. Frequenting Kandy in recent times yet couldn't find a decent mid range (price) restaurant until today. Entering the estbalishment you would not be wrong to think its just a bakery cum cafe. But when you take the wooden stairs you enter a more sophisticated dining hall. Elegant lighting and candlelit tables greet you. Tried... More

The White House Restaurant is Located Centrally in Kandy City. It Offers a wide Variety of Chinese & Indian Food. They aren't very Authentic in Taste though. The Pricing is decent and the ambience is very good. It matches to the standard of a Fine Dining Restaurant in terms of Decor. It also has a bakery below which offers a... More

We ate lunch here and enjoyed it so much that we came back for dinner! Food was really tasty and we got great recommendations from the waiter. We particularly enjoyed the butter chicken, paneer, vegetarian curry and the gorgeous parathas. Just be aware that the tandoori chicken doesn't come with a sauce an that you can't order a beer -...

Centrally located over a bakery. Fabulous decor and really clean.However, we received an icy welcome and I felt our custom wasn't wanted. Food was fine but portions were very small. Staff should undertake a course on people skills especially when dealing with women. It seemed as though men were king and not the consumer.
