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...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

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,...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, 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.
