Any REST framework should technically work. Django, Flask, Laravel, Rails, ExpressJS, Spring, whatever works. PHP gets a lot of hate but it has libraries for everything and can be hosted easily.

I agree. I have develop in almost all of them. If it’s only for a api, anything can do but if they want to do a full backend web app with api but also with things like sending email, run schedule job, etc, take time too choose something you will be confortable with.

Personally, I really like Laravel. It make full usage of modern PHP OOP. The MVC project is well done and very easy to learn and scale. The documentation is clear and write with beginner in mind. And like you said there tons of well maintain librairies ready to use in production.
