Delivery Late & Food Very Average
I was so excited to get organised and have a healthy meal prep. Unfortunately my delivery was amost 2 days late so i had to go and shop for food for the first few days. Then I started with the meals.. Lots of overpowering flavours, mushy textures and when heated, lots of water left in the containers. Also, there was a meal that came with avodaco, sealed in ready to be heated... who wants warm avocado? (no-one is the answer!)
I have tried another meal prep company and I will definitely go back to them and not order again.
Such a disappointment!
I was really looking forward to trying Thrive. My first meal of chicken cacciatore was nice, however after that the meals were really disappointing. The vegetables were already overcooked and soggy even before they were re-heated. I found a bone in my lemon chicken which just tasted like they’d squeezed some lemon over a piece of chicken. The meals were really unsatisfying and felt hungry afterwards. I ended up throwing out the whole next weeks worth of food it was really disappointing and I wouldn’t ever buy their food again! I’ve since changed to a different brand (You Foodz) and they’re fresh and delicious and I feel full after eating them. Out of 10 I give thrive a zero!
Bland and average.
The value is good, but the food is very bland and doesn't taste that good. I even referred a friend who had similar feedback to give. Won't order again unfortunately. Supermarket frozen meals are better.
I ordered 10 of their meals. When l received them, they looked like the $2 aeroplane meals you can get just with a plastic covering on them and there is no Thrive label on it. Did they buy old airline meals and resell them? I will not buy again as they do not look appealIng, the amount of protein in them is inadequate and left me hungry and from a price point are overpriced, don't compare to their competitors.
My new regular.
I used to be a YouFoodz fan but got sick of their ridiculous in the middle of the night delivery times so tried Thr1ve. Wow! I’ve tried many different ready made meal brands and Thr1ve meals are by far the tastiest. Also perfect if you are watching your calorie intake as they have a large range of low/no carb options and are perfectly portioned yet filling. Better delivery times and better communication on delivery times. I’m converted!

Hair, broken containers and chicken bones
I ordered 10 meals from Thr1ve.
When received I opened it , two broken containers with food everywhere.
This was fine that happens. I had a sealed one for lunch and it had two hairs and two chicken bones. One bone cutting my throat.
At this point why would I want to eat any meals, the sauce was also very bland and tasted watered down.
When I contacted the customer service they refused to refund me and tried to insinuate i had dirty plates and was i certain the hair was not my own, it was a clean plate I used to show the hair.
My partner tried one of her meals, again very bland and another hair. When contacted they said they would only refund for these four meals....To summarise; bland meals, terrible customer service, bad food hygiene and broken packaging. It is a NO from me.
There's better options
The meals were good for the price - when they were what was actually advertised. (For instance, I got a 'Thai Chicken Coconut Curry Soup that was supposed to have big pieces of chicken it - not a single piece of chicken!!) The flavours are nice, for the most part, and for the price you can't complain. I found the portions to be a bit lacking, but I'm a 186cm 90+kg guy, so you may have a different opinion.
The packaging was an absolute disaster. So much needless waste - they've not tried at ALL to make things more sustainable. The amount of plas...
When my meals arrived from Thrive I had a leaking chicken meal, leaking protein shake and a meal that is displayed in the photo not sealed properly. I emailed the customer service line to voice my disappointment with no response. I would NEVER buy from this company again and warn others against it. NO value for money at all. I am actually left out of pocket as I could not have the three meals.
Loving my Thr1ve orders!
The food is great quality and always delicious. I really love the variety provided in the new boxes and find it so wholesome and nourishing.
I am loving the new variety that's coming on the site each week.
Keep doing what you are doing, you have a loyal customer in me.
Not value for Money
I bought a vegan essential box for $130.
Do some ruff calculations if your went to a supermarket to buy it would have all cost maximum $50-$60.
To break it down
2 vegan curries at $15 =$30
1 2kg pumpkin soup $10
Tinny bad quality vegetables = $12 worth.
Total worth = $52
Delicious. Good portions. Great value for money. Delivery always early. Try the juices too.
Everything about shopping with THRIVE is easy. Any questions are answered quickly. Delivery driver never stops smiling. Happy workers and great products. Would recommend to anyone. Even fussy eaters will find something here. Juices are a fabulous addiction. Just brilliant

Thr1ve is not matched. Their service is impeccable. Food A++, Serving size A++!! I have no reason to go elsewhere.
Extremely satisfied. Tasty, great value for money! Communication is fabulous.
Had a spill with one of my orders and it was replaced immediately.
Have tried so many other prep/food box services and thr1ve is by far the best. The food best suits my nutritional needs and it’s like a home cooked meal. I am so impressed by the service and the quality - I won’t be changing companies again!
Blend and overpriced
Dissapointing blend small meal. Spend two dollar more and you get a good portion freshly made at your local Thai.
Missleading packaging with ingredients which are not in the meal.
Did not contain the 325g mentioned on packaging.
great food - once you get it.
I have used approximately 10 times now - the food is pretty good, but the ordering process is complex - you are ordering meals that you haven’t even tried yet, due to the lead time. If you are on the 8 week program that is supposed to have 3 stages, you never know if you have been delivered the right meals, appropriate for where you are in the 8 weeks. It usually takes me 3 attempts to actually get an order placed.
But my biggest issue is the delivery. I mean, if you send a text the night before, saying your delivery will be at 11:30am - then ...deliver at 11:30! To get an order at 5:30 pm is just plain UNACCEPTABLE!!! People have lives, jobs, work shift work, kids - all which gets impacted when this happens. In the 10 odd deliveries I have received - not one of them has been delivered on time - not even one. I’ve also had a box of food left on top garden plants in the full sun in the middle of summer - all the food was destroyed, and so were the garden plants under it. I’ve tried to put a hold on delivery for a week, and it’s been delivered anyway - for those last two events, I got a $50 refund on about $300 worth of food, which I guess shows they care a little at least - like about 15% care factor? I’ve tried working with them, to get things sorted out - because the food itself is good. It’s a shame - they have put a lot of effort into the food - but sorry, the business end sucks. I’m done - I feel like I’ve been extremely patient and given them every chance to get things right, but now I just feel like a sucker getting taken for a ride. Cancelling my subscription. A real shame.
Subscription variety a let down
My rating is based on comparing with other subscription services which vary meals each week. I was disappointed to find I had to vary my meals early in week (for the following week) even before I’d tried many. The taste was good - flavourful. The meals are freezable. But just lacking the simplicity of variety I would have preferred
Diverse Flavours and Complete Macros
I looked for an option where the flavours were diverse enough to keep things interesting, and also have a mix of high calories and low calories based on my objectives at the time. I think this, with the complete macro count of high protein, carbs and fats have made it an easy choice. Definitely be ordering more!
Great flavour, great option for clean eating, great option for keto/low carb
I've tried plenty of frozen healthy meals, including YouFoodz. But Thr1ve is the best - it's all clean sourced eating which none of the other frozen meal companies offer. Plus it's not loaded with salt like most other frozen meals.
Great option for keto/low carb diets, high protein, low sodium, I'm a convert.
I read the negative comments about bland/flavourless. Not sure what these people are expecting (it's a $12 frozen meal, not Vue De Monde).
It's got great flavour for everyday meals. Looking for a frozen meal, that's high protein with clean ingredients without a laundry list of chemicals/fillers - this is it.
AMAZING! Fresh and Delicious
I've ordered Thr1ve as I was interested in the Keto meals and they have made my keto transition so easy. I was worried as I've used other meal services in the past and have had chicken that was fatty and meals I didnt enjoy and have thrown them out. All of the meals I have ordered have been of a high quality. The veggies are always fresh and the chicken is cooked to perfection without chewy bits. Today I had the clean chicken and veg and for a meal that should be bland there was so much flavour with the lemon broth for the chicken keeping it mo...ist. I'm very impressed by the quality of meals and I'd say they're fantastic value for money because I actually finish the meal and am satisfied. Will definitely be ordering more and recommending. My only critique is that I would love to see more Keto options on the menu.
Decent size portion.
Received my pack yesterday wrapped in foil I like the variety of menu. Chicken rendang and pull beef dishes are flavoursome and tasty. Packaging is easy to peel off and warm up. Shared with a colleague and was very happy.
