Best way to test out a REST API?

I just created a REST API using the PHP Slim Framework. However, I would like to know what the best way would be to test out this API would be. Is it best to test it out using PHP or objective-c (where it will be used) or via some online service which allows you to test out a REST API? All outputs are in JSON.

Answer

As @Martin says, REST implemented properly is independent of the client (assuming it supports your representation types). So for example you can use the Poster add-on for Firefox, or RestClient 2.3.
