The Oriental Birmingham backgroundThis month, the prestigious Phoenix lunch takes place at The Oriental.  Guests will enjoy a 2-course Oriental banquet with wine at this popular Mailbox restaurant on Thursday 25th September. 

The Phoenix is the most successful, long standing networking event in Birmingham.  This monthly lunch has been taking place for over a decade with a different organiser and venue chosen each month.  It attracts a wide range of business owners and professionals from well known local companies with a typical attendance of 80-120 networkers.

Marketing the Midlands is delighted to be hosting the Phoenix Lunch Club for September.  I have chosen The Oriental as it is my favourite city center restaurant with great views of the canal, delicious dishes and superior customer service. Unsurprisingly, it is listed as one of the Top 10 Pan-Asian restaurants in the UK.

The Oriental serves beautiful Thai, Chinese and Malaysian cuisine.  So that you will have the opportunity to sample a number of different dishes, lunch will consist of an Oriental Banquet.  Please let me know if you have any special dietary requirements or require the vegetarian banquet.
