QuiteLike Meal Kit Review
The not so good:
What is QuiteLike?
QuiteLike is the new meal kit on the block. Offering meal solutions for real life, QuiteLike aims to make cooking enjoyable with no-fuss recipes, whilst ensuring maximum flavour and options for the whole family.
With countless meal kits on the market, how does QuiteLike stack up – are they healthy? Affordable? And are their meals easy to prepare and tasty? Find out below!
How does QuiteLike work?
QuiteLike’s website is visually appealing and easy to navigate, I was immediately drawn in. First, you select how many servings you need – 2 or 4, and the number of meals you want each week – 2, 3 or 4.
They advertise their meal kits as suitable for families however, not all families are families of 4 so it would be great to see their number of servings increased to 5 or 6 (especially for those families with hungry teenagers!). I would also like to see 5-6 meal plans added as well.
You then choose from up to 30 recipes each week from categories including ‘Easy’, ‘Fast’, ‘Healthy’, ‘One-Pot’, ‘Family Friendly’, ‘Native Australian’, ‘Superfood’ or ‘Treat Night’. There is also the option to select meals by protein type such as beef, chicken, and pork. Whilst this is a good variety, competitors such as Marley Spoon and Hello Fresh have more menu items to choose from (50+), along with larger meal plans, so if you are looking for more variety, I would recommend these services over QuiteLike.
I selected the 4 meals, 2 servings plan. When looking through the menu, there were only 6 vegetarian options for me to choose from, which was very disappointing. You cannot filter their menu by allergens such as ‘gluten free’ or ‘dairy free’, however each recipe clearly outlines the ingredients and allergens, so you can make an informed decision.
As a new meal kit provider, I would have loved to have seen a filter feature along with more dietary preferences to allow for greater customisation. If you are pescatarian or vegetarian, I would recommend other services such as Hello Fresh or Marley Spoon as they cater to a wider range of dietary preferences and allow for more customisation.
Once you select your meals, simply proceed to the checkout and your meal kit will arrive the following week.
QuiteLike currently delivers to suburbs in New South Wales, Victoria, Australian Capital Territory, and Queensland. Whilst, they are not available everywhere, they are expanding. QuiteLike offers a weekly subscription service, and you can change, skip, or cancel each week with no fees.

There is a $9.99 flat rate delivery fee on all orders which is standard across most meal kits. QuiteLike is very reasonably priced, in fact it is one of the cheaper premium style meal kits on the market when compared to Hello Fresh which charges $100.00 for 4 meals for 2 people including shipping. As with most plans, the more meals you order, the lower the cost per serve, with meals on QuiteLike’s 4 meal plan for 4 people costing $9.90/serve.
My QuiteLike Experience
My box arrived very neatly packed and included printed recipes cards along with a bonus tea towel (which made me very excited!). The recipe cards are excellent, with clear step by step instructions, images and sections outlining the pantry items and equipment needed. The cards also include a breakdown of the nutritional information, allergens, and a QR code to access the digital recipes online.
Each meal came packed in a brown paper bag that was clearly labelled and all fridge items were in a separate cooler bag. All the ingredients looked super fresh which I was pleasantly surprised by! Some other meal kits I have tried in the past did not have such fresh-looking produce. They provide all the core ingredients, with only basic pantry items needed such as oils, salt and pepper, red wine vinegar and sugar. This was clearly outlined on the recipe cards which I loved.
Despite most of the packaging appearing to be recyclable, there is no information on their website about their packaging and/or environmental practices.
Cooking the meals
The recipes were easy to follow thanks to their 6 step instructions. All recipes had an estimated cooking time of 45 minutes which is longer than I expected, and all meals did take this long to prepare.
It would be great to see some more quick meal options for those who don’t have a lot of time on their hands – this is something Hello Fresh does well. I was pleased as to how well everything came together despite some of the meals looking ‘fancy’ – the recipes were simple yet creative.
Each meal provided generous servings, enough for 2 people. The Tex-Mex Haloumi Tacos were extremely generous, I was able to get 3 meals out of this.
Meals I loved –
I loved every single meal – they were fresh and flavourful. My top picks would have to be the ‘Tex-Mex Haloumi Tacos’ and the ‘Baked Salmon’, these were restaurant quality in my opinion.
QuiteLike Nutritionist Review
A standout feature of the meals was the excellent vegetable content. Each recipe contained at least three different types of vegetables and on average each portion provided the equivalent of 1.5 serves of vegetables, which is a good contribution to our daily vegetable targets. It was also great to see different coloured vegetables used in each recipe (more micronutrients!).
I also loved how some of the vegetables were ‘hidden’ in the recipes such as the ‘Cheesy Chickpea and Feta Enchiladas’ – this recipe contained grated zucchini in the chickpea mixture (great option for fussy eaters!).
Overall, the protein content of the meals was excellent, with each serve providing 35g+ of protein. The sources of protein were also great quality, and included haloumi, chickpeas, and salmon. The meal with the lowest protein was the ‘Roasted Eggplant Salad’ which only provided 12g of protein. By adding a source of protein to this recipe such as tofu, you would have a more macronutrient balanced meal.
As this is a meal kit as opposed to readymade meals (which often contain preservatives, additives), the reliance on real food ingredients means this is a healthy option. It also means there is the ability to adapt the recipes to meet your individual needs, such as adding more vegetables or protein, or reducing added salt.
