When ever traveling to the Portland Metro area I make sure i have both lunch and dinner at Seres. The menu has so many wonderful selections each time I go in I can choose a different selection and know that it will be great. I like to go there with several people so we can have a variety of dishes.... More

Superb! Hard to describe how tasty the fresh and savory sauces are not found in typical Chinese cooking. Hand formed chicken dumplings and spring rolls as a start to the main entrees...all so very good! Can't go wrong here! Already planning my next visit!
