Hello Chef is a meal delivery service based in the UAE through which meal planning can be done with minimal effort and maximum convenience. Here is my personal review after a week of trying out their recipes.
I am sure most of you all love homemade food, but it’s also true that sometimes in our busy lives, we just don’t have the time to search for recipes, buy all the ingredients on time and consume all the produce before it gets spoilt.
But thankfully, there is a solution for that, and no, it isn’t buying restaurant food for every single meal. I’ve seen some of my friends doing that and trust me, it’s not only unhealthy but you start to get really bored of it.
HELLO CHEF provides you with all the ingredients you need to create a delicious homemade meal, delivered straight to your door.
It is one of the leading meal kit providers in UAE. From the various weekly recipes they have, you can choose upto 4 of them, and they will provide you with all the ingredients, perfectly measured along with recipe cards having visual step to step instructions on how you can create your meal.
Meal Planning with minimal effort and maximum convenience, Hello Chef makes it easier.
I tried them out a couple weeks back, they have a diverse menu with a wide variety of cuisines, also catering Vegan, Low-Carb and Family friendly meals.
So whatever your diet plan is, you’ll find something that suits your taste and preference.
For my box, I opted for the following:
- Prawn Salad with Mango and Peanuts
- Honey and Mustard Steak with Fresh Salad
- Lamb and Feta Meatballs with Ratatouille
- Chicken Tikka Masala with Rice and Cucumber Salad
With new dishes to choose from every week, they’ll keep you wanting more.
What really caught my eye is their neat, organized packaging. The ingredients for each recipe had it’s own labelling along with the quantity mentioned, and they were all stored in seperate cardboard boxes indicating which recipe they were for.
The meats were well packed in vaccum sealed plastic bags, mess free.

Preparation of most of these meals are really quick, cooking time can be as less as 20mins or upto 60mins depending on the recipe you choose.
Would you require any other items apart from the ones provided? Yes, but not much. Having a bottle of Olive Oil, Salt and Pepper can come really handy in most recipes.
You would also need to have a couple basic kitchen equipment like pans and pots, cutting board, knife, mixing bowls etc. If any other specific equipment is needed, it’ll be mentioned along so you can choose the recipe accordingly.
All the food I tried from Hello Chef was just as great as their service. Flavourful and delicious with good quality ingredients going inside each meal. I could also easily tweak the recipe a little if needed, to perfectly suit my taste.
Overall it’s a great product and service, this box was provided to me by the company for a review and I am recommending it because I genuinely enjoyed using it.
You can get the boxes delivered to you on a weekly basis, they have different plans and options available.
