I am so sorry for your experience, and thank you for your feedback. We do have lunch on Saturdays, and I am truly sorry that you were told otherwise. Aside from that, it is against our policy to deny a customer's request for a lunch...More

Love the quiet, contemporary ambience of this Asian restaurant. Great downtown street views from big windows while still feeling private at your table. Soft piano plays in the background, impeccable & friendly service. Prices were listed as ‘moderate to high’ in the TripAdvisor listing, but...More

We were five starving women and what a find this was. The food was prepared beautifully and delicious. The interior was simple but elegant. Definitely a place to go to again.

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.
