It is somewhat surprising that this very good restaurant had so many open tables. Possibly because it was in the middle of the week, possibly that the number of tables is high. It is in a good location in the Pearl District, where there are...More

Very nice good service. Cloth napkins, soft music. Good place for a quiet date night meal. Ordered chicken and broccoli and Buddha vegetable dish and both filled with to much broccoli.

This is a great restaurant for lunch or dinner. I love the Szechuan beef over brown rice. Great cocktail menu for a Chinese restaurant. I've never had a bad meal here.

lukewarm food and service. Odd smell in restaurant when we arrived, not pleasant. our soup and entrees were only warm, the moo shu pancakes were tough, the service was spotty. Obviously much better choices in Portland, we won’t return

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.
