Malaysia’s first Shiba Inu Café is located at Taman Austin. It opened in February 2022 and has since become a popular spot amongst locals, all thanks to the cuddly friends. Although there are pet cafes in Singapore, most of them have pretty expensive entry fees. However, Shi-ba Café charges an affordable RM10 per hour, with free soft drinks included.

They also serve food there, like Japanese Curry Rice and more. Apart from just Shiba Inus (which they have 10 of), there is also Alaskan Malamutes, a Corgi and even a British Shorthair Cat!
