If you're going for a Japanese restaurant... sushi or sashimi. Along with miso soup (I dislike clear soup, personally), and light salads.

If it's pure calorie count you're looking at, then aim for vegetable rolls or things like shrimp rolls. Read the descriptions and you can skip the ones that have creamy or fried things in them.

Avoid tempura anything! (Means it's battered and fried)

And if it comes down to it, most Japanese restaurants have versions of steamed vegetable dishes with only minimal sauces. Rice tends to be served in a separate bowl so you can cut that in half if you want any at all. And some restaurants can even serve you brown rice instead of white rice if you prefer.

(Though sushi should really stay white rice for flavor)
