To test Rest APIs you can use Advance Rest Client or Postman. Postman is really good and you can create collections as well for the endpoints that need to be regularly regressed. Alternatively, you can use Jmeter as well for API Testing and use assertions to validate things.
Strange that none mentioned good old fashioned programming languages. Some are easier and some are faster, personally I have used Perl and Python with one of the many REST related libraries, some don't even require real programming just a couple of lines of code.
