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, cafe and restaurant all in one. The cafe 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.

I had a great lunch (chicken tikka masala and paratha) the portion sizes were great, the staff helpful and free wifi topped off a great lunch but also one of the most expensive lunches i had in Kandy

My partner and I had a few hours before our train ride back to Colombo and decided to stop here to have a mid-morning snack, read and do a bit of work. To our surprise, there was free Wi-Fi which was perfect! We were there on a Friday so they did need to ask us to leave for their prayers at noon (islamic) but were open again shortly after that. We hung out there for a couple hours and never felt the staff trying to push us out. Also the locals who ate there were also very friendly ... it attracts a slightly higher class clientele with it's slightly higher prices and modern surroundings. Pretty decent food ... I recommend the lamprais if it's available for lunch!

There are a lack of dining options in Kandy but this place fills the void. We actually went twice after a couple of misses at other places. The menu is quite large and varies from Chinese to Italian to Indian. They do not serve alcohol. I would recommend ordering from the Indian food section. The service was adequate. My table was happy but there was a group of tourists near by who did not have a positive experience.

good food. way better than we expected. and lovely ambience. the candles - the dim lighting, makes for a lovely night out.

however we tried to end our meal with a chocolate brownie - but were sorely disappointed. it had peanuts (groundnuts) instead of walnuts, not something we are used to and also rather oily. so maybe stay away from that. but rest of the experience was lovely!
