The Gold Medal is located in a convenient area of Forster. Easy to get parking with easy access to the restaurant. The food is quite nice, although very salty (as most Chinese food is). A must try is the garlic butter king prawns. Never had that anywhere before. The restaurant is very clean and inviting. With very good service. A... More

I have tried to give this place a go but unfortunately have been let down on 3 occasions. The food is very bland and ordinary no stand out flavour. The sauces taste like they have been bought from the supermarket. Beef very chewy and the seafood was not fresh at all! it had a bait smell to it. The restaurant... More

Outdated decor but friendly staff made this a solid performer. By Sydney standards, the food was not spectacular - I'd describe it as Australian-style suburban Chinese in menu and execution. A good choice for those feeling nostalgic or something predictable.

As far as Chinese restaurants are concerned, there is not much that makes the Gold Medal stand out from their competitors. The food is typically Chinese. Having mentioned that though, I must say that this establishment is exceptionally clean. The tables and walls are very clean. The silk curtains are stainless and without blemish. And the dish that impressed was... More

We got the last table, for two of us, right near the kitchen entrance. The speed with which food emerged was startling. We had so-called Malaysian curry, which really had nothing to do with anything Malaysian, but was nonetheless tasty and filling, comprising king prawns, big lumps of chicken, beef and pork, and lots of assorted vegetables, in a thickish...

Really good Chinese food - really fresh tasting. Decor is pretty basic but the food and prices are worth going for. Had the sizzling garlic butter prawns - YUM!!!!!!

It was ok. The tofu dish was average. Sweet & sour pork was good. The pad thai had an odd flavour, & we didn't eat it.

We found this restaurant open on Christmas Day. Food was absolutely delicious. Large portions with plenty of meat. Best sizzling steak we have ever had. Best of all there was no surcharge, menu and prices the same as any other day of the year. Excellent fast service.
