Our Vegan Restaurants

The Founders are organic vegans - as a young family living in Hoi An we needed somewhere to eat healthy organic vegan food & beverages so in 2005 we openned Karma Waters !  

We operate our Vegan Restaurants & Tours as a "commercially viable not-for-profit cooperative" where we are able to make profit but because we are vegans and our mission is to grow veganism through cooperative structure and sustainable community development. Therefore we do not take profit.
The Owners and most staff are 100% organic vegans.  NO dairy products, no meat, no fish or eggs are cooked or available on our premises.   It is difficult to be 100% sure what we purchase in Vietnam (which has no Organic Certification) is organic & non-GMO so we purchase most of our vegetables from Tra Que organic vegetable village.

Our Policies & Guarantees:

  1. Based on Five Precepts we are sharing Karma and earning Merit in positive ways and all aspects of our business and customer service reflects this
  2. If a customer to our restaurants is not 100% satisfied with our food & beverages please contact our staff and we will arrange a refund for the part that has not been consumed or we offer other choices of F&B
  3. If a customer on a Tour of purchasing other products & services is not 100% satisfied with out products & services please contact us and we will arrange a refund or alternative choice
