Elasticsearch in Local mode is slow


I have populated elasticsearch index in local mode using node client with
number of shards as 1 and number of replicas as 0. When i run a boolean
query, it is taking 200ms to execute and fetch results. Same code using
node client in local mode pointing to the cluster running on my
machine(which has same index data) it took 35ms to execute and fetch
results. Why elasticsearch index in local mode is slow?. Following is the

Builder builder = ImmutableSettings.settingsBuilder();
Settings settings = builder.put("path.data", USER_DIR+"\data")
.put("index.number_of_shards", "1")
.put("index.number_of_replicas", "0")
.put("discovery.zen.ping.multicast.enabled", false)
.put("discovery.zen.ping.unicast.hosts", "localhost")
.put("http.enabled", false)
.put("index.store.type", "mmapfs")
.put("indices.memory.index_buffer_size", "30%")
.put("index.translog.flush_threshold_ops", "50000")
.put("refresh_interval", "5s")
.put("index.blocks.write", true)
.put("index.blocks.metadata", true)
Node node = NodeBuilder.nodeBuilder().local(true).settings(settings
long st = System.currentTimeMillis();
long et = System.currentTimeMillis();
System.out.println("Time taken to refresh...."+(et-st));
SearchRequestBuilder searchQuery = node.client().prepareSearch("places")
st = System.currentTimeMillis();
SearchHits hits = searchQuery.execute().actionGet().getHits();
et = System.currentTimeMillis();
System.out.println("Time taken to search "+(et-st));
if(hits.getTotalHits() > 0){
SearchHit[] hitsResult = hits.getHits();
for(SearchHit searchHit : hitsResult){
