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.

“Tourist only place, not memorable just average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014 via mobile

The Indian cuisine was a bit bland although OK in parts. They didn't have a good selection of desserts and the ones from the bakery downstairs were poor. It really is a wind up when they don't have large bottles of water, only small and much more expensive ones.

It was actually OK but much better around in Kandy.

“Excellent fish tikki masala”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2014

Downstairs there is tea room. There is a selection of prepared food there, but it's better to eat in the restaurant (1st floor).
We ate excellent fish tikki massala. Friendly service, quiet and cool place upstairs.

“Ok - but nothing great...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

Me and my father in law stopped over for some lunch a few months back, and I must admit I did not enjoy the experience. The juices took a while to come, and the food was not great either. The service was so so - and the place lacked any character - which was a shame given the absolutely awesome location.

If you want to grab something to bite in a hurry this place is clean, ok priced and fine : but if you want to sit down and really enjoy a meal, try some place else !

We spent a lovely evening here with great food and good service. We even had space for a piece of cake from the bakery downstairs...!

“Good choice in Kandy for lunch or dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014

We ate here twice whilst in Kandy, and found it to be reliably delicious and good value. Curries are Indian rather than Sri Lankan, but everything we had was very tasty. Good service too.
