We visited this restaurant on many recommendations. The food was really tasty however the service was terrible! We were shown to a table that hadn't been completely cleared from the last guests, which is fine, however the manager asked a wait staff to clean it not once but twice and still no one cleaned it. They simply bought over the... More

Food was delicious. More like indian than srilankan food. We had biriani and spinach paneer. Not for low budget, unless you share the portion (which is possible).

Absolutely terrible. Sri Lanka has some amazing food but this place doesn't even deserve a front door it's bringing the town down. Service was shockingly bad, they even tried to ask my sister to bring up the drinks from downstairs! The food had so much sugar in it could have been a dessert. Don't bother wasting your time here.

We went to the white house on a recommendation as a place that serves halal food. It was easy to find but when we went through the door we were confused since it looked more like a bakery than a restaurant. We asked about the dinner they serve to find out that the restaurant is actually on the first floor,... More

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.
