“Food fit for a Gold Medal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2011

I have travelled extensively and case new locations looking for a quality meal. The Gold Medal Chinese served up food to a medal winning, perhaps Hat winning standard. The salt and pepper calamari exceeded anything that I have had in a major city in Australia or Asia for years!

“So pleased we ate here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2011

We ate at this restaurant on recommendation from the Jasmine Lodge where we were staying. They said that they had received two glowing reports from other guests so we decided it was worth a try.
We received a really warm welcome from the waitress who remained cheerful and helpful all through the meal and had time for a chat too.
Cooking seems to be a family affair with mother in charge of the soups, dad does the rice and the son looks after the other dishes. (I think I've got this right.)
The whole meal was delicious, from the soup to the dessert, and was reasonably priced. The main dishes we tried were prawns with ginger and shallots, satay chicken and salt & pepper squid. Each was cooked to perfection.
If you want to eat out in Forster you should definitely try the Gold Medal.
