This small downtown restaurant on Richards street is not located all that close to the tourists sites (It is below Granville Street and above Yaletown). Still it is only a 10-15 minute walk from the main downtown core. Locals know about the great food and value of this unique Japanese tapas restaurant. Do not let the relatively plain exterior fool you, Plus Alpha is a real gem. There is a wide variety of sharing plates (hot and cold) and well made sushi. The sushi rice itself is one of the better ones I have tried. The staff pay careful attention to quality, whether it be food or service. Apparently, there is also a great selection of different drinks, although I always enjoy beer with sushi. This is one of favourite downtown cafes/restaurants and it is certainly much more reasonable in price than many of the other places to eat in the area.
