Bullied for tip at Best Little Restaurant Chinese in CT [Moved from Boston board]

My foodies & I just returned from a so-so lunch at Best Little Restaurant in CTown. 4 of us. $71 tab after taxes, $66.35 before. We estimated tip based on pre-tax amount and left $12,-- or just under 20%. My 3 mates had just walked upstairs to the street when I was accosted by a waiter with a pen in hand and $7 in the bill folder. In very very little English he started doing some math on a napkin, gesticulating and being loud about needing to leave a 18% tip. After a back and forth that was fruitless, I left another $5 because already other tables were staring at me, and not in a good way. Clearly he could not understand me, and I could not understand him. But I do know one thing: WE WILL NEVER GO TO BEST LITTLE RESTAURANT AGAIN!
