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.

Called in here for a bite to eat but it wasn't the best. Didn't feel clean, the food was poor and service was quite slow. Try elsewhere.

We stumbled upon this restaurant in Kandy and were pleasantly surprised. It was one of the best meals we had in Sri Lanka. After walking through the bakery downstairs we were a little hesitant, but all of the curries and Nan were absolutely delicious. I would probably skip on the salads and just order more entrees next time we go,... More

I had a pleasant dinner for a reasonable price and the food had nothing to complain about. Will definitely visit again on my next visit to Kandy

Slow as a tortoise, if you are tired and hungry don't go there. You might die of hunger and thirst waiting for your order to arrive. Rather eat at the street joint. Hyderabad biryani was no where close to Hyderabad. Perhaps this is true as the distance between Hyderabad and Kandy.

We found this place via our guide book and is one of the seemingly few places to eat, if you are looking for a dining experience in kandy. The food wasn't too bad but only luke warm when it arrived and took so long to arrive we didn't bother to ask for it to be heated. In fact the service... More

Unclean cutlery. Very bad service. No food for more that 45 minutes. After 45 minutes they said that food wasn't available. Cutlery was sent to clean and didn't come back. Horrible place.

We had chicken tikka masala, garlic nan bred and noodles with chicken. It was all great! The tikka masala was a little bit spicy :) I ordered lemon soda and I got some homemade lemonade and it was delicious!! The staff was also very nice. The price is very fair !

We went here for lunch and after reading the menu made our choices. Unfortunately most of what we had chosen wasnt available at lunch time. The italian food wasn't great but the curry was ok.
