Sydney is one of the most multi-cultural cities in the world. Did you know that in the City of Sydney area, over 50% of residents were born overseas? This also makes the environment very linguistically diverse. 39.2% of people speak a language other than English at home. 

If you’re new to Sydney, you might be looking for a trusted supermarket brand. It’s where you can find the groceries to replicate your favourite recipes!

Whether you’re looking to cook Chinese, Indonesian, Korean, Thai, Vietnamese or Japanese cuisine, there are supermarkets in Sydney that cater for your flavour. In no particular order, here is our list of major Asian supermarkets.

Miracle Supermarkets

Miracle Supermarkets has shops located in 7 locations. Each store is different in size; some feel more modern and all are family-friendly. Our favourite one is in the “Infinity Square” precinct, next to Green Square train station – the design is elegant and they have an impressive wine section.

Tong Li

With 18 stores open across Sydney’s north, south, east and west, Tong Li is the largest Asian supermarket chain in Australia. They are known for a wide range of groceries offered at a fair price. 

The most prominent locations are the Tong Li supermarkets in Blacktown, Campsie, Castle Hill, Hornsby and Hurstville.

Thai Kee IGA

Located inside Market City Shopping Centre in the heart of Sydney’s Chinatown, the main branch of Thai Kee IGA is an enormous haven for Asian and Western supplies. They are known for stocking products from practically all over Asia (including Philippines, Vietnam and Thailand), with the goal of serving the diverse community of Haymarket.

There is a smaller Thai Kee IGA that recently opened next to Meadowbank train station. Google Maps link here.

From the same Thai Kee (泰记) family with over 30 years of retailing experience, Gong Grocer opened in 2023. Gong Grocer is named after Thai Trinh (郑有泰), who is affectionately referred to as “Ah Gong” (阿公).

Stylish and modern, Gong Grocer features a gourmet bakery, an on-site butchery, and a curated liquor store.

New Yen Yen

Many Australian-born Chinese people, or “ABCs”, will have childhood memories of visiting this Asian supermarket with their parents. If you’re one of them, you might reminisce asking for snacks like Hello Panda biscuits, White Rabbit candy, and anything in the Meiji range of sweets 😉

The most popular New Yen Yen supermarkets are in Chatswood, Eastwood and Hurstville.


With their biggest shop in East Village (Zetland), Zetciti has two other locations. One serves the cozy community of Wentworth Point in Marina Square shopping centre, the other serves the community of Rhodes in Rhodes Central.

Mido Mart

Like the shopping centre it’s located in, Mido Mart has a young and fashionable look. There are many Japanese items as well as Korean beauty products. It’s a convenient Asian supermarket to stop by to buy a cute box of chocolates before meeting a date in Sydney’s CBD.

One of the longest-standing Japanese supermarkets in the city, Maruyu stands humbly in the centre of Sydney. It’s known for friendly customer service and a tasty selection of snacks, sweets and drinks. Don’t miss the mochi ice-cream!

KMALL09 Eastwood

If you’re missing the food scene in South Korea, a visit to one of Sydney’s “Koreatowns” should satisy a craving for bibimbap, samgyeopsal (pork BBQ), or any kind of jjigae (stew). Afterwards, if you want to recreate it at home, KMALL09 has the goods.

This exciting supermarket is filled with Korean groceries, household items, skincare products, and frozen products. The interior is vast, clean, and friendly with customer service.
