Panda Express is a popular Chinese restaurant chain that is typically found in food courts at malls and airports. Surprisingly, Panda Express does not offer any vegan, or even vegetarian dishes. This includes sides. Our advice is to skip Panda Express if you’re a strict vegan/vegetarian.

Other Vegan-Friendly Chinese Options
In my experience, most mom and pop Chinese restaurants offer at least a few vegan options you should consider instead of looking for Panda Express vegan food. You just might want to ask if the dish in question contains fish sauce before ordering because some seemingly vegan-friendly dishes, like vegetable lo mein, are traditional made with fish and/or oyster sauce. If you’re looking for a Chinese chain that has vegan options, P.F. Chang’s has a quite a few vegan-friendly menu items.
