A very popular eatery in the centre of town. We had a mix of western (Spaghetti carbonara) and Sri Lankan (curry/noodles) and nobody was disappointed.

Three of us shared a meal. Had fish tikka and a chicken tikka masala as well as the vegetable rice and paneer naan bread. We enjoyed it all. We were greeted and seated quickly. We had arrived approx. 7:00pm and was quite empty but filled up quickly afterwards. The servers were pleasant and wanted to ensure all was okay. The... More

Food was a joke, staff was ok though. Ordered vegetable soup as starter, it was inedible, thick like gravy, tasted very salty and must have been cut at a factory somewhere far from the restaurant. The soup resembled something from a can. Next, the papaya juice was warmer than room temperature and the two ice cubes could not chill it... More

Slightly better experience in waiting and wasn't given a partial racist treatment. The food was quite good. Loved the breads! Staff was nice and polite. It took us a while to place order and to even find a table, but food made up for that!

We went twice to this restaurant and we really liked it. The food and service are excellent, especially for the price you pay.

Amazing food! Best Indian food I've ever had. The service is also amazing! Food is very reasonably priced and definitely cheap for tourists considering how good it is! So far been both nights of our stay in Kandy and definitely going back tomorrow evening for a third meal.

Had a very delicious lunch at this restaurant in Kandy and the best thing was the outstanding service. We were in a hurry and the staff managed to deliver very good food in almost no time, with a big smile. Flexibility like this is always greatly appreciated. ❤️

A busy place is often a good sign but this place was a bit disappointing. Food was OK but service was slow.

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.
