Description: Seres Restaurant, formally Sungari Pearl is located in the Pearl District...
Seres Restaurant, formally Sungari Pearl is located in the Pearl District and has been serving the greater Portland area since 2003. Seres Restaurant features a modern Chinese menu with emphasis on purity. In addition to using organic produce whenever possible, Seres' dishes feature local ingredients such as Oregon's Painted Hills Natural Beef, local produce and beancurd from Portland's own OTA Tofu Company. No MSG or artificial additives are added to our dishes. Essentially, you will still find every traditional long-loved Chinese food like fried rice, potstickers or Kung Pao chicken at Seres, however with a lightness and purity that are not only delicious but important.

Good looking interior and good Chinese food

We ate here for an early dinner on a Sunday. We were the first diners but the restaurant began to fill up quickly. The décor is refreshing and it wasn’t overly loud. They bill it as sustainable and that was one of reasons I choose it. Two of us had the Tsingtao beer and one had the iced tea... read more

Definitely not your average Chinese restaurant! Simply put, my favorite! The restaurant itself is upscale in appearance and price is very reasonable. Sauces were very flavorful, ingredients were high quality, and large portion with leftovers to go.

Loved this place. Just had appetizers in the evening as we'd had a big lunch. Started off with hot and sour soup which we usually have at every Chinese restaurant we eat in.

Thank you for taking the time to do a review for us and thank you for dining at Seres! You're right the curry isn't very spicy. The sauce is curry, turmeric, coriander, cumin seeds, cinnamon,cloves, bay leaves, and allspice. We do not add any chili peppers to the dish. However, if you like the flavor of the curry but would...

I'm typically a steak guy, but found Seres to have an incredible menu, fresh ingredients, and the best service in the Pearl. The folks are always there to freshen the drinks. I bring my family and friends here as often as possible.

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!
