We were thinking this would be a great new Restaurant to add to our list of "Favorites" but were unfortunately disappointed! We ordered the half chicken first as it said it takes "extra time" to prepare and then ordered some appetizers and other main entrees. The crab and asparagus soup had practically NO flavor to it! The chicken shumai was... More

We were hungry for Chinese and our concierge recommended and made reservations for us for this restaurant for lunch. It was excellent. Lovely modern interior - not the usual Chinese restaurant decor - but good service, and excellent food (and I've been to China!)

Went in on a Friday night about 6:30 and it was not busy at all. Atmosphere is okay; far from intimate with high ceilings like many Portland restaurants. Food was average but the biggest problem was that both entrees, General Tso's Chicken and Sesame Shrimp were way too salty. Actually sent one back about half way through.when it became intolerable.... More

Wanted chineses food in walking distance. Food was very fresh and good value. Pot stickers actually too much filling in them almost like a meatball, prefer less, i know that sounds odd. Service was good and nice decor. Would go again

I get take away about once every other month or so. The veggie fried rice and General Tso's chicken are always great. Love the fresh veggies, including broccoli and peas in the rice. I have eaten in also and the space and people are very welcoming. Good location.

I stopped in for lunch and was seated immediately. I didn't find anything it wanted on the lunch menu so I was brought a dinner menu. My green beans were well cooked and had good flavor. A variety of meat and vegetarian options. They will also accommodate gluten feeet and vegan.

If it wasn't for Giorgio's in Portland's Pearl District having already claimed for all time the title, I would declare this restaurant to be the purveyor of the Worst Restaurant Meal I have EVER been served. This place is only the second worst. The room is lovely, but that is all the kindness I can muster. We had the duck,... More

If anyone say that's this is not Chinese food, I say if it tastes good it's Chinese. There s something called creative Chefs. If you want chicken feet and steamed frog, yes you are in the wrong place. Chinese or foreign chefs In America are innovative since there s s lot of competition. I go here all the time, I... More

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.
