Really great food in their restaurant as well. Although eating haute cuisine next to blown-up photos from Vietnam and Cambodia is perhaps not the best mood setter for that all important first date.

I 've really enjoyed watching videos of several of their talks - the ones that cover areas I know a bit about were sensible and informed with credible speakers, which inspires confidence in the stuff that's all news to me.
