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.

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

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.
