Was just there and was so badly treated that i just had to write a review (my first ever).
First of all, the place "white house restaurant" doesn't exist anymore. It has moved to another location a little down the street (nr 42) and has changed its name to "Foodlands bakers and restaurant".
Downstairs there is a bakery and upstairs a boring and plain looking restaurant (NOTHING LIKE THE PICTURE HERE!).
We decided to try it out anyways.
I started by asking them if it was possible to make the butter chicken absolutely non-spicy, as i cannot eat spicy food because of a condition.
They said sure no problem and promised me it would be just as i wanted it.
When I tried to order naan bread, they had run out. When my boyfriend ordered the tikka masala, they were out.
He ordered something else.
The food came very quickly which tipped me off to the fact that they hadn't changed the butter chicken in any way.
The dish was waaay too spicy for me, and i couldn't even get through one bite of it.
I badly needed my drink that i had waited about 15 minutes for, as they messed the order up the first time 'round.
I told the manager that the dish was too spicy for me and that he could just take it away. He just said 'okay' and walked away without doing anything about it.
I tried to talk to one of the other employees and the same thing happened. I told them i wasn't paying for something that i couldn't eat, and they just ignored me.
When the bill arrived they expected us to pay for the dish and at this point i was mad enough to refuse them completely.
They (finally) brought someone over who spoke decent english and who understood, fixed the bill and apologized.
Overall very bad service, and a truly disappointing experince after seeing the pictures and reviews on here.
WOULD NOT RECOMMEND!

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.
