Went to this restaurant based on trip advisor reviews. Downstairs is like a cafe but go towards the back and upstairs into the restaurant area. There is a good selection of curries at reasonable prices. I couldn't tell you what I orders as I have never eaten it before, but it tasted like chicken in a chilli jam sauce with... More

We ordered tandoori chicken, fish tikka, sweet and sour prawns and garlic and cheese naan. We ended up receiving chicken everything even though we only ordered one chicken dish... they brought out chicken tikka and sweet and sour chicken and to add to it, plain naan instead of the garlic. The chicken tikka was completely burnt on one side and... More

We were there today in the evening. The entrance on ground floor does not really make it appealing to go in but once we got upstairs, it was really nice. We had chicken tikka masala and butter chicken with some naan and it was very tasty. I read in another review that they had found the staff unfriendly and slow,... More

Good Food. Excellent quality vs. price ratio. Service was fast and adequate. Try the Indian dishes if you like a change from Sri Lanka curries

Nice restaurant in Kandy, where there is not so meny good restaurants, but White House has a great menu off indian dishes; the bread was good and service good, and the Paneer Palak was amazing: the best we ever had. The restaurant could be more cosy - but the food is great.

I've been in Sri Lanka for a month now and this was the tastiest meal I've had. I ordered the butter chicken and it was so flavoursome I returned the next day for and had the chicken tika masala which was equally as pleasing. Yum! Will definitely go back again. It's also got a calming atmosphere in the middle of... 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.
