Serves meat, vegan options available. U.S. restaurant chain offering Americanized Chinese cuisine since 1993 expanded to include international franchisees. Several of the sides and appetizers are vegan, such as the lettuce cups (choose veg), chili-garlic string beans, wok spinach, and Sichuan asparagus, among others. Clearly labeled vegetarian dishes include Thai curry, stir-fried eggplant, Buddha's feast, and mapo tofu - vegans please inquire if any are vegan or could possibly be made vegan.

Better Than Expected

Seems like there aren’t any good food options in Atlantic City. I was not excited to eat at a P.F. Chang’s, but it was decent. I ended up eating here twice because I was offered a comp.

The first time I got mapo tofu. It was good - not too salty when mixed with white rice. It wasn’t really mapo tofu though - it was crispy stir friend tofu chunks with broccoli. It was good anyway.

The second time I got the buddha thing. I found it to be less-good than the mapo tofu. The vegetables were cut a bit large, so it wasn’t the easiest thing to eat. And the sauce was super thin and watery.

The dishes were like $16 - $18 and served with a choice of white or brown rice. The portions were generous.

The people who work here are cool and nice. They were way under-staffed the first day I went here, but the employees who were there were really hustling and making it work.

They have TVs upstairs with sports games on.

This chain keeps getting worse

The more popular they get the worse the food gets. Just go somewhere local instead.

Cons: Waning quality

Extremely accommodating

My only warning for this place, is don't believe the online vegan guides that say the vegetarian lettuce wraps are vegan, they are not as they contain oyster sauce. I told the server that I am vegan immediately and he went straight to the chef to ask what menu items would work for me. They not only told me what was already vegan, but they were specific about what could be changed to be vegan for me. They were able to swap out the oyster sauce for a vegan sauce, and change a vegetarian entree for me to make it vegan. They were wonderful.

Pros: Accommodating, Knowledgeable

Cons: No menu identification of vegan items

Not Vegan/Vegetarian friendly

I was excited to visit this restaurant as I've had Chinese food before and knew there were plenty of veggies to choose from. I'm also gluten free, allergic to shellfish and do not eat tofu or soy. I thought the chef would be excited to make me something but was told I could not have anything on the menu at all. not only was the chef not accommodating but the waitress was not nice about recommending anything and was told to try another place for dinner. I asked for stir fried veggies and rice. and was told I could not have any sauces they have in the restaurant at all because they were all oyster based. I was hoping they could get creative with any sauce, but winded up with steamed broccoli and plain rice.. I could have made that at home and for the cost I was extremely disappointed. I am shocked they were not helpful at all. we will not be returning!!

Pros: not for vegans

Cons: pricey and not helpful or friendly about it.

My fellow vegans, Don't even bother to go to this restaurant.

I have heard that the chain offers vegan options, however when I asked my server, and she talked to the "chef" I was told that they couldn't guarantee that anything on the menu was vegan except for the harvest curry., or that they could make me a Buddha Platter, steamed without any sauce. When I pointed out that the edamame was also (one would hope) a vegan option, the server just said, "oh yeah, that too."

They told me that the lettuce wraps and spring rolls are not vegan, though I've been told before that they were, and have eaten them in the past.

The edamame were fine, and the harvest curry was good, but the lack of cooperation from the kitchen and waiter, not even some "you can have this if we leave off the dressing," was very disappointing. I won't be back.

If you are in the Tropicana and want to have a good vegan dinner, I recommend Cuba Libre, they have some very delicious options, and a knowledgeable staff.

Pros: Good martini and wine.

Cons: "Chef could only confirm ONE vegan option on menu.
