The following is the e-mail response from Panda Express when asked which of their menu items are vegan:

Thank you for taking the time to contact us regarding the food we serve at our Panda Express restaurants. We value all comments and suggestions from our guests.

Panda Express only offers a few non-meat entrees at our restaurants. Those entrees are not considered vegetarian due to our cooking process. Cross contamination may occur as we cook our meat and meatless entrees in the same wok. In addition, some of our recipes call for our non-meat entrees to be cooked with a chicken broth base. For these reasons, we advise our guests that none of our entrees are truly vegetarian.

Please know that your feedback has been shared with our Marketing and Operation Leaders for further research. We appreciate the time you have taken to inform us of your concern and will look into the matter.

Thanks again for contacting the Panda Restaurant Group.
