I was expecting so much more after reading the reviews but we left feeling disappointed. Meals were tasty but small. The naan bread was burnt and the softdrinks, flat and warm. (No alcohol!) That two other couples left the restaurant having barely touched their meals, speaks volumns. The fact that WH has been rated number 1 is no indicator of... More

We had noodles which maybe wasn't the best choice. They were quite bland but when I asked for extra veg they did too it up quite a large amount, very well priced. The naan bread which went past looked very good

However the food was out of this world! Didn't have local ambiance, but the food is with it and the prices are decent.

While the place looks a bit worn and tired, the food is good and the service is good. take away is very busy and therefore could do with a bit more efficiency.

We ate at White House twice during our two nights stay in Kandy and both times it was excellent! The curries there are so yummy! We can recommend the butter chicken, fish curry, vegetable curry and the parata! So good! Looks fancy and waiters are very polite. Price is more than reasonable for the big portions you get. Highly recommend... More

Waiters are nice, as is the food. I would recommend the curry. Decor a bit worn and there are cheaper places around. Nice little lunch spot though.

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.
