Our team at the Meal Kit Review tries out each company that we review which includes tasting a broad selection of the meals on offer. We were a little sceptical at first, since the Silver Cuisine By BistroMD meals are frozen, but we are happy to report that we were delighted with the taste and flavor of all the meals that we tried! We tried more than 10 meals from their menu selection which gives a great indication of consistent quality. The meals are just delicious, we would say they are worthy of five stars! Honestly, in most cases it felt just like a meal that had been cooked at home that same evening. The portions are also reassuringly generous!
We believe that the reason the meals taste great is due to the fact that they are all cooked in small batches by professional chefs at the company kitchens.. None of their meals are mass produced, but rather they are prepared just as they would be if you were cooking them in your own kitchen. Then immediately after cooking, each meal is flash frozen and delivered directly to you!
A few of the dishes that we tasted from Silver Cuisine by BistroMD:
We also enjoyed the ‘Eats’ dark chocolate and coconut bars which are an option to have as a healthy sweet snack – what a treat! One of the best we have tried. If you love bars, we highly recommend giving them a go!

The Silver Cuisine by BistroMD box:
The contents of the box we received were very well organised. The box comes with an insulated foam cover and included inside are large non-toxic gel-ice packs that are placed on both the bottom and the top of the meals. Our box was left outside of the freezer for a few hours after it was delivered, and all the meals were still very much frozen by the time we opened the box.
Each meal is wrapped in its own sleeve which includes the name of the meal, heating instructions, ingredients and all the nutritional facts. This type of packaging is super informative and very helpful!
Silver Cuisine by BistroMD prepares each meal using fresh and natural ingredients. The company is also committed to only using ingredients from responsible sources. Their culinary team selects sustainably sourced seafood, always sources rBGH-free beef and uses hormone-free chicken. To achieve this high standard, they have partnered with local family-owned farms whenever possible.
