Have been to Indiano John now for the third time in the last month. The food is good and very taste. I would recommend to order a variety of dishes and share with the group. They also have various nice draft beers.

This is 5 star, indian food at it's best. And, if you want a little entertainment, go and see the Wine King himself, John, at the HUB. Whatever your choice, you won't be disappointed.

greetings, thank you for your question, I would say it is about 45 minutes, as the restaurant is in the centre, and bearing in mind the traffic.
