Does a Chinese restaurant exist in Manhattan that doesn't drown its dishes with brown sauce, black bean sauce or other jarred glop?

I've tried so many Chinese restaurants in Manhattan and other boroughs but most seem to insist on drowning the food in soupy sauce. Basic dishes with pork, beef and vegies seem to swim in sauce even though I ask for very little. The same goes for canned vegetables that are included as "fresh" - canned corn, water chestnuts and slimy mushrooms. Again, if I don't ask for these ingredients to be eliminated, they're thrown in as fillers.

Can you recommend any restaurants in Manhattan that serve tasty Chinese food? Thanks.
