To get to the restaurant you'll need to walk through the small canteen like cafe on the ground floor up to the first floor. The restaurant is a comfortable place. Food is good. We had the fish tikka masala (average), butter chicken (excellent) and nasi goreng (good). The naan was good too. Service is attentive but food was very slow... More

This is our first restaurant in Kandy we visited and it was good. Nothing fancy though. I think the first floor is for dinner, which is where we were sat. It looked nice and it was a bit away from the traffic, also nice. The food tasted good and was not too expensive. Also try their juice. Try this if... More

It was the best restaurant we ate in during our stay. The food was really delicious and the service was spot on. I was looking for a halal place so it was perfect. Keep on the good work

Went twice, first time was excellent and it was early evening around 5.30. Second time it was average. Very nice waiter but need to keep food consistent. (Same dish both nights)

Delicious food, lovely atmosphere. Authentic, warm restaurant but still felt comfortable as a westerner (it felt upmarket). Downstairs looks like a canteen and from the outside it appears nothing special but the reataurant upstairs is great and the food was served piping hot. It was very cheap too! But that wasn't reflected in the quality food - delicious!!

We ordered tom yum, rice with seafood and eggs (don't remember the name of the dish) and lime fresh. The soup which we received wasn't tom yum at all - there was just chili, one shrimp and some vegetables. When the waiter asked is everything ok we described why it's not tom yum. They prepared another one but with coconut... More

Dropped by for lunch, Downstairs seem to be a bit of a crowded affair, with a budged feel to it, while upstairs is more of a proper sit down restaurant compared to downstairs. We had Lamprice and set menu chicken rice. The food was nice, same price as downstairs but you get to have it in a more cosy and... 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.
