You can verify if a Panda Express location takes Apple Pay by using the Apple Maps app. The app is likely already on your Apple Device. It can be downloaded via the Apple App Store if you do not have it.

Once you are in the app, search for the Panda Express you wish to visit. Pull up the restaurant’s information and look for the “Useful to Know” section. Here you will see the Apple logo and/or “✔ Accepts Apple Pay” if the Panda Express location takes Apple Pay.
