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, 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.

“Cheap and delicious”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Centrally located, White House bakery and restaurant serves a delightful variety of sweets, breads, snacks, beverages and main course meals. The lunch specials are the best priced and range between Indian, Sri Lankan and Chinese style dishes. With its A/C seating upstairs and free wi-fi, White House won't disappoint! Highly recommended in Kandy's poor dining scene.

“Well prepared Indian food”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Well located, upstairs from a bakery, we easily walked there from the lake. It seemed to take forever to get waited on, to order and then be served, but the Indian food was good and good value as the cost was reasonable. Nothing great but good food.

“Loved the cakes”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

We bought some cakes and had a tea in the White House and we liked it!.
Lots of cakes, breads and drinks, very cheap for our standards...
Haven't tried the restaurant. In the coffee shop in the entrance, the air con was not on, which made the atmosphere to be warmer than outside in the evening...

“Excellent local taste in the midst of Candy City”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

Must try Chicken Lamprais (220 RS), covered by banana leave to hide Sri Lanka fragrance, and taste. Not only local taste is, you can try varieties food such as Indian & Chinese.
