[One may not eat meat and fish together (Shulchan Aruch YD 116:2) and Rema (116:3) recommends that one should separate between eating those items by eating and drinking some neutral food. This is known as kinuach and hadachah.] Restaurants that serve sushi and meat often have nothing on the table to eat between the sushi/fish and meat, and I'm wondering if rice can be used for the kinuach?

Yes, rice is perfectly suitable for kinuach between fish and meat, as long as the rice is itself free of fish and meat.
