The album received universal acclaim with Metacritic giving it a score of 81 from 8 reviews.Thom Jurek, in his review for AllMusic states, "Tirtha is a triumph; it is a high-water mark in hearing the constantly evolving discussion between jazz and Indian music". Writing for All About Jazz, Mark F. Turner said "the recording crosses the channels of jazz and Indian music, eschewing the hybridization of the two styles; a semblance of familiarity but also something entirely fresh. The nine tracks contain robust elements of ethnicity, thriving improvisation, and exhaustive composition; steeped in modern and old worlds". The Guardian review by John Fordham awarded the album 4 stars noting "Iyer and his partners sound like a spontaneous ensemble from the outset – not self-conscious participants in a fusion experiment".
