Climbing the cramped staircase to the second-floor Sushi Rose isn't too encouraging. The restaurant itself is a converted railway flat with a front room that can accommodate small groups and a pleasant, well-lit sushi bar towards the back; in between is a narrow dining room whose decorative highlights include a clock and an exit sign. Then again, there's the food—a mix of traditional sushi rolls, teriyaki offerings, and cooked appetizers, as well as a wide range of fresh and exotic sushi and sashimi. Novel choices include an orange clam that's curvaceous and glisteningly firm, white tuna, and a compact, jazzy-looking kohada—also known as Japanese or gizzard shad. The more adventuresome can opt for uni yamakake: sea urchin floating atop a sticky white porridge of shredded Japanese yam. One of the restaurant's more elegant pleasures is the saba gari roll, a mackerel-ginger combo in what the menu calls a "cucumber embracement." This delicacy, sliced thin, offers a procession of textures and tastes, with the cool sweetness of the cucumber offsetting the sharp ginger, and the full-bodied mackerel enhanced by the minty-lemony taste of the rough oba leaves cradled inside the cucumber rim.
