Do you live in Qianwei South Campus?
1. If yes, the Metro Supermarket is located at No.4567, Shengtai Street, Jingyue Development District. From the campus, take subway line 3 to get to Weixing Plaza Station. Then transfer to bus no.161 to get to Fulin Huayuan. Aftet that, walk northeast around 0.9 miles (1.4km).
2. The nearer Dicos is located at No.48, Chongqing Road, Nanguan District. Take bus no.13 to get to Banruo Temple. Then walk northwest around 550 yards (500 meters).
3. As I know, there were several Tesco in this city previously. But I heard that they were closed now.
4. Curry Shop Indian Restaurant is highly recommended. You can find authentic indian foods there. And the prices are acceptable. It's about 2 miles (3.5km) away from the campus. The address is 1st Floor, Building No.28, Phase 2 of Chaoyang Shangyuan Community, the intersection of Fusong Road and Hunjiang Street. Hope you like.
