Makes being vegan easy!
These meals are delicious and always fresh! This year we transitioned to a plant based diet and Soulara has made it a breeze! I love that my family gets fresh, organic, vegan meals delivered each week straight to our door!
Got Soulara for the first time the other week and couldn't believe how good the meals taste. I'm vego but have been trying to eat less eggs so soulara made this easier for me. There's more protein than you'd think because of the tofu. I especially liked the nadi noodles, highly recommend
I've been with Soulara for 3 Months, and i must say they have helped my busy lifestyle so much. Super happy with their delicious meals, it becomes a daily routine for work to just grab my meals and go! Such amazing variety, absolutely love the juan mexican red beans & rice and the bodhi bol ! Such a great starter kit to plant based meals.
Honestly, I would say that i would love more breakfast options, but everything so far has been super well. My mission was to increase my intake of plant based meals and i would say it has helped me increase my options of vegan food meals.
Would Not Buy From Them Again
Terrible customer service - have sent 3 emails with no response in 2 weeks. I wanted to give it a go and the first order arrived - with 3 missing meals. which when you are considering each meal is approx $10 - adds up! not only that I just want what I paid for. no response from these guys. besides that the food is mediocre, not special and also theres questions on their hygiene practices - I strongly discourage people from buying meals from them!
I think they're great
Good sized portions; not too much, not too little, just right. I also like that they have a good variety of meals to chose from. I have no imagination when it comes to cooking vegan food so this helps a lot.
Meals not great and multiple hairs found
I really wanted to love this as I'm not a fan of cooking, I don't have a lot of free time and I like eating healthy food. Unfortunately this didn't live upto my expectations and that was for a few reasons.
Firstly, the first delivery arrived nice and early on a Sunday. Brilliant! I put everything in the fridge before going to work and took one of the meals for lunch. I opened it only to find a nice thick, dark hair sitting right on top. I didn't get mad about it until it happened a SECOND time. This time I was at work again, opened up the mea...l to find another hair, not two days later. At this point I'm questioning Hygine practices. Today (second week of meals) I've found another hair! So three hairs in three meals in under two weeks. Secondly, The quality of the food. The meals look beautiful on the website, but its definitely not what you receive in real life. The Nirvana carbonara is grey, watery and has a really off-putting vinegar smell. The pesto dish doesn't contain anything apart from pesto pasta and a couple of bits of semi-dried tomato. The image definitely had rocket. I messaged them after the hair situation the second time it happened and they were kind enough to credit my next order for the two meals that had hairs in them but after the taste and quality of the meals I received this week, I don't want anything else from them. This is my honest opinion, if I want grey food, I'll cook it myself and be disappointed in that.
I so wanted to love Soulara. We have recently gone vegan and quickly ran out of meal ideas that didn't require a lot of time, effort and ingredients. We were hoping this would fulfil all our vegan dreams! The reviews made it sound so good. Unfortunately we found it really disappointing. Love the concept, ordering was super easy, delivery was fine... but portion sizes and the taste of the meals was, well, bad. We expected small portions as we had read that on several reviews before ordering, but they're tiny. Eg: one curry had exactly 3 tablespo...ons of rice (I measured) and not much more actual curry. We are not big eaters at all so were surprised that even we found them small. Taste wise I can say of the 4 meals I tried, 2 I couldn't even eat (pesto pasta, and one of the curries). The other 2 I ate but didn't enjoy either. There was no real flavour, just 'hot'. *The turmeric healing soup was ok for flavour. I ordered 12 meals in total costing $120 - so $10 per meal. I've already cancelled my subscription without trying the other meals. I've sent them feedback and hope they improve. A lot of people seem very happy with it, but it's not for us.
This sounds over the top but these products have changed my life
Ive been using different meal services - 5point4, YouFoodz, but I wanted to try soulara because of the vegan options and variety! Ive found everything tasting the same with other companies but soulara is amazing.
Every meal so far has been incredible! Ive popped them into the freezer because my routine is unpredictable but they freeze fine, and its so handy to have macro balanced, tasty meals within 5 minutes whenever I need.
Theyre a little pricy but no more than cooking these kinds of meals for yourself.
Would definitely recommend!

Tasty and makes my days easier
I signed up for soulara because I'm not a huge fan of cooking but I AM a huge fan of tasty and nutritious food. I also work very long shifts (12-14hrs) and need food that's easy and quick to prepare so I can eat on the job, throughout the day.
The food is quick and easy to prepare and I've found it to be quite tasty. The variety is second to none. I'm a bit confused about the reviews that call it bland, to be honest. I haven't had one meal that I thought was bland or tasteless. I also like that the meals are whole foods based with no apparent ...additives or preservatives. My only real issue is that the meals are quite small. I'm a small (<60kg) but very active woman. I find 3-4 meals a day to be satisfying (not including breakfast and supplemented with fruit). Bigger people, men, and people with physically demanding jobs might find they could eat two or three meals in one sitting. Overall, I'm happy with the food. You're not paying for massive portions, you're paying for real food, convenience, and variety which I believe soulara delivers.
Changing our lives!
My partner and I have joined Soulara twice and loved each experience.
The first time round we wanted to try the hype, we had a few friends who were subscribed and heard very good things. I was not disappointed. I struggled a tiny bit with the portions as I ate way more than we should so I wasn't used to portion control. I didn't give my body enough time to adjust.
This second time round, it's 3 weeks in and we are feeling the best we have in a very long time.
There is SO much variety and old favorites from last time.
I suffer from bloating...and weight gain due to medication and I have noticed my bloating is better by at least 60% and I've already lost some kg's (I don't own scales). My skin is clearer and brighter my mum mentioned that I'm glowing. The convenience of having all 3 meals prepared 6 days a week is just incredible! We have more time together and doing things we love instead of slaving away in the kitchen. We both work long hours and really don't want to be in the kitchen sometimes until 9:30pm after cooking and cleaning.
The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
Fantastic. Can't understand very negative reviews left here.
Have found this service to be great. We are not practicing vegetarians, but keen to reduce our meat intake, and chose the 12 meal plan to achieve this.
So far we have found a good variety and great, tasty meals. For us to prepare this variety each week would be impossible. Good to see the variety has increased since I last used the service, and there is a greater range of meals to choose from.
It saves us time (can be used for study and working), and less wasteful then trying to prepare different meals each week (difficult when just 1-2 people)...
Food was inedible. I really wanted SOULARA to be what they advertised
The customer service was fine as was the weekly delivery.
The food was so tasteless. Vegetables were inedible.
I have no idea how a chef could get it so wrong.
I am a creative eater & have no trouble eating decent meals.
SOULARA needs to address this issue because they will not succeed with the poor quality of food they are currently delivering.
I wasted my money and time.
Absolutely loving it! Easy to stay healthy whilst working full time and studying!
I've been doing Soulara now for a few months and it is absolutely great for someone who is working and studying and wants to remain eating a healthy balanced diet. I am aiming to tone up as well and Soulara have made it easy for me to make good healthy choices that I know are nourishing my body to get me through my day. I see a lot of reviews talking about taste being bland etc but I have to disagree completely, the meals are very flavoursome and I've even given a few to my mum who loved them as well. It is great that they source their products...from mostly organic farms and its food planned by a nutritionist. Really gives me extra comfort in the choices I am making. I highly recommend to anyone who is time poor, wants a healthy choice and loves value for money!
Was reeled in by all the glowing 5-star reviews..
There are definitely some delicious meals however I chucked out so many meals due to taste. I had to chuck out the following meals due to taste and smell: Shakti Stroganoff, Nirvana Carbonara, Jalepeno Mac & Cheese and Mushroom Bourguignon. I had to opt for different dinner options, and just wasted my money. I really wanted to like it, but in comparison to other Meal Plan companies, they have a smaller menu size, and didn't taste too great.
I am happy I tried Soulara out, because I found out it wasn't for me.
In regards to delivery, for my tw...o orders they were either sent to wrong house or didn't make an effort to hide it. Delivery fee is 20$!!!! Ridiculous amount to pay.... No value for money here. I'm on YouFoodz now. They have yummier meals AND free shipping! Not regretting it one bit.
Perfect for staying healthy whilst studying
As a time poor student, Soulara has been so helpful in allowing me to eat healthily whilst studying. So many quick to prepare foods are low in nutrients and vegetables and it’s really difficult to find vegetarian or vegan meal delivery services, but Soulara provided a wide range of delicious, healthy meals. My favourite dishes are the healing turmeric soup and the pesto pasta - they’re both always on my weekly menu!
Great concept, bland food.
I should start off by saying that the company is very organised and professional, meals arrive when expected, and it is an easy system to use online. With that said, the food itself is not great. I understand that flavour and taste is a very subjective thing, however, I found most meals very bland. A lot of my meals were curry based and they had absolutely no flavour! I would suggest that they hire new chefs or find better recipes.

Tasty lovely nutritious plant food but ...
The meals are brilliantly nutritious interesting and fresh! However automatic second week order went through morning after meals arrived. Not enough time to taste & review or amend order. Therefore I cancelled subscription but may re order again soon and try other dishes.
Love their meals!
My son’s girlfriend is vegan and I find it a challenge to cook for her when I have the family over for a meal. Soulara was recommended and it was a great find! 3 portions of the Pesto pasta made a delicious salad for 8 people and the dahl was a great hit with my son’s girlfriend. I used the extra meals during my work week and I particularly loved the stir fry and the curry dishes. The food taste home-made and the meals are a boon when I come home too tired to cook on weeknights. I will definitely be ordering again.

Questions & Answers
Does Soulara help with weight loss
Soulara meals are nutritionist designed. With satiating fibre, plant protein, healthy fats, and low GI carbohydrates, Soulara meals can assist you in meeting your weight loss goals and maintaining a healthy weight with ease.
what additives, if any, do you use?
I have noticed that there are literally dozens of suspiciously over zealous, over positive, over written reviews of this product and all reviewers have one thing in common ...... they are all first time reviewers. I smell false positive reviews. Such a pity there's no way productreview.com.au can filter out the bogus reviews done by fake positive review accounts. It's just so obvious what Soulara are doing to bump up their star rating on here. I'm about to try the food for convenience but I'm really disappointed to see fake reviews and this has made me suspicious of the company. Is there anybody out there with more than 20 reviews, who has not just started up their account in 2019 who can give me HONEST, GENUINE feedback on this food and the company ????????
Ok this is my honest opinion. I am not paid for leaving it. So for me that was the biggest NO ever. Although the customer service is not bad in the way they communicate with you quite effectively the problem is they don’t take responsibility for not delivered products or even all boxes. Well maybe I said wrong... they take responsibility in the way they will credit it (after 5-10 days !!) but of you order food and you wait for over 1 week for first delivery you don’t really want credit you want food. So I ordered twice and !!!! Twice not delivered ;) and the best is I got exactly the same story .. which would be fine if not fact I gave them another chance one year after first disaster. So if you want my opinion. If you don’t care if your food was delivered or not go for it and try it, if you want to buy from the company you can trust that your effort of eating healthy, lose weight or whatever is your goal and you expect every week your fridge won’t be empty go and do your business somewhere else
Thankyou ! I ended up using The Organic Kitchen here in Melb. I got a bad feeling about this company and didn’t like the ‘no phone number’ thing. If they can put a person on a chat screen they can put them on a switchboard. It seemed too sales focused for me and the clearly fake positive reviews were the deal breaker. Thanks for your answer !!!
Yeah, all the glowing, positive reviews sound like they've been pre-written by the same writer. Pretty confident they are all FAKE REVIEWS. And to think I was about to order a subscription from them. For a company to be dishonest like this, it has put me off. I think I'll just stick to preparing my own vegan meals.
