Firstly this restaurant is split into two floors. The top floor is a restaurant with AC and the bottom floor is a cafe with no AC. The menus are almost identical apart from the price. To eat the same dish upstairs you will pay more...More

Coffee was overpriced for the location and was pretty disappointing. Place felt dirty, imagine it would of been cool when it was actually white and clean now seems a little yellow and old fashioned. Food didn't look up to much either hence not eating.

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.
