charing cross, parramatta, Auburn and Randwick come to mind as places with indian grocery stores Edgecliff has an Asian store so do many suburbs.

It is difficult to say what is a safe suburb as some areas of them can be rough and other areas of the same suburb can be posh

parramatta is popular with indian people

as for discounts for electrical stores i have no idea

Hi croc, welcome to Sydney

We recently bought a place in Alexandria, just south of the city. It's officially the Inner West, I think, but not very far west. We're still exploring this side of the bridge after being North Shore for a couple of years.

It seems very multicultural and might have what you want, if you don't want to move as far out as Parramatta. We just found a decent Woolworths (selling a lot of Macro-branded organic food, great for us!) in a little mall at Marrickville that seems to have all the usual. There are also lots of factory outlets, and retail parks selling housewares, etc., so you should be able to find some good deals. We always use Good Guys for appliances as they'll do a deal. I think other people on here have recommended appliancesonline.com.au too.

Rents go down as you get further away from the city although you do need to beware of the Airport train line as there is a surcharge on it which pushes ticket prices up - I take a bus to work now, much cheaper and less stressful too, I find Well, when it turns up but I've learned not to stress too much about that.
