A decent restaurant with a mix of Indian, Chinese and continental food. The interior looks a little old, and unkept. But the food is delicious.

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.
